    Listy: I`ve never seen it in the TV listings, and I`m not surprised. The finer points of jokes about the British school system, for example, just don`t translate in the US or Canada, nor would much about Brit celebrities, politics, traffic, etc. It`s happened before with other shows.

    listy - it`s all youtube. We don`t get most british shows, but I like them. Qi, Graham Norton, Mock the Week or classics like To the Manor Born, Thin Blue Line, As Time Goes By.

    We had a show called "Who`s Line is it Anyway" hosted by Drew Carey. I loved that show. It went away for a while but I just saw a promo for it so maybe it`s coming back. Reminds me of the exercises we did in an improv class I took. A lot of fun trying to think on my feet!

    wow, that`s just brought back a few memories Gerry. My mum always stopped whatever she was doing whenever to the Manor Born came on.

    I used to watch "To the Manor Born" and "Butterflies". Of course, there was "Absolutely Fabulous". Loved that show! Entered a contest once to visit the show. Didn`t win :(

    We`ve gotten sidetracked.
    I posted this hoping people would participate, post their own "Bad Thing for Teacher To Say".

    Blackadder still rocks!

    "Yes Samantha show and tell can be anything.

    Except if it`s a special doctor showing you a doll and telling you to use it to point to where I touched you after PE last week."

    The first season of Blackadder was like a medieval Mr Bean. It was rubbish.

    For those of you across the pond who like some classic British comedy, I suggest Yes, Minister and Yes, Prime Minister. It`s something you might well overlook for the reason carmium gave - since it`s a comedy about UK politics, it would be reasonable to think that it wouldn`t be funny elsewhere. It works in pretty much any bureacratic democracy, although some small parts are UK-specific (e.g. references to the biases in specific newspapers).
