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. Of course the explanation is completely bogus - there are no things that would put the WHOLE planet into chaos or standstill. Need a proof?

There were few comedy series that gave the opportunity to take a look what is going on behind the media that we know - television, radio, newspapers. NewsRadio was created by Paul Simms, who previously worked as author for Late Night with David Letterman, which gave him the insight into the media and sitcom The Larry Sanders Show (which was sort of parody of David Letterman).

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.

It’s not often that British sitcom takes the American approach to comedy and is created in same manner as in United States. Even "My Family", created by American Fred Barron, was still close to other British productions. But Not Going Out is a completely different matter.

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.

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. On the other hand there are series that try too hard to be funny and lose on the plots and characters building.
