One of the explanations behind the theory that American government hides the fact that aliens have landed on our planet is that people are not ready for the information that there are other life forms in the universe so mass panic would just burst and put the whole into planet.

Take Welcome to Our Village, Please Invade Carefully as a guide book.

Blackadder as sitcom set a new quality in British television - historical show that made fun of the British past wasn't that original (to recall Dad's Army or The Almost Complete History of Britain), but the level of humour and great characters made it a classic. But just like in The Life of Brian there was another show, who did not made it to the top, although it had all the components to be great - Chelmsford 123.

All Gas and Gaiters 1967-1971 British classic sitcom

There were quite few sitcoms that used unlikely themes as the basis for humour, but decision to make a bishop the main character for sitcom in All Gas and Gaiters was rather revolutionary. First of all the world of a bishop is rather limited - there are only few people in his environment, there are certain topics that can't be used in the humour (he is a priest after all), there are certain templates that can't be used. Yet in case of All Gas and Gaiters Edwin Apps and Pauline Devaney managed to avoid all the traps and make a really entertaining sitcom out of idea that seemed unsuitable for comedy.

It was hard to predict that this comedy series is gonna be such hit - 20 years after the end of World War 2 it seemed that British viewers would prefer to leave the war themes behind, the war films were more or less dying part of British cinema. But when Jimmy Perry come up with the idea for Dad’s Army there was another snag - is 20 years after the war enough to make a sitcom about World War 2? People still remembered the blackouts, the air raids, the food rationing...

When Are You Being Served? was about to finish in 1985 the creators, Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft, were already thinking about a spin-off. The concept of department store have already dried out (which is hardly surprising after 10 seasons), so they would need a new location, constant cast changes in previous seasons did not helped in keeping it all together, but on the other hand they gathered a group of colourful characters, very good actors, that could be a powerhouse for another sitcom.

Comedy Series Blog - we search all the interesting (and sometimes not that interesting) comedy series from around the world. Some of them might be slightly better than the others, but in comedy there are no strict rules - sometimes less funny series, but made with skillful touch could be a hit.
