    @Hope N Ur Heart Randall and Hopkirk is listed as being a drama. Sorry. Catweazle could fit though, based on the premise of it rather than any actual knowledge of it, lol

    A couple of others...

    The Odd Couple
    Get Smart
    The Muppet Show
    The Muppets

    Also sketch comedy shows like Monty Python's Flying Circus, In Living Color, Fry & Laurie or Not the Nine O'Clock News etc are not sitcoms, just saying. The Muppet Show and The Muppets however are eligible, as even though it is a variety theatre setting or the late talk show is the setting, the premise is what goes on in the backstage area/office etc rather than the variety performances that punctuate the show and they have beats that they hit in each episode that differ it from the looser sketch comedy shows.

    There used to be a show on every friday night. Don't know if anyone wil remember. I'm sure it was called Friday the 13th. Story was about a man and woman who inherit their uncle's 'junk' shop. Each episode was devoted to an item in the shop and the story behind it. Horror/mystery

    Some good shouts @Jacob knows although this one is just on sitcoms, so while some you mentioned are, quite a few of the shows on your list don't really fit the bill - might get covered down the line some time :)

    Would breeders with Martin Freeman be classed as a sit com?

    It's not one of my favourites, but some of it is mildly amusing. It's ok background television. I actually think the people that play the parts are pretty good at what they do.

    The out takes of Friends on Youtube is actually much more comical than the show itself, thought the actors actually come across quite well in them!
