    Not bad at all.....

    It got me thinking; those programs where the cast would jump from scene to scene, playing different characters (along the lines of SNL or Monty Python) aren't nearly as common in the USA as they used to be. But it seems that the Brits still make them.

    I'd say that they're smart to do so. That's a good format.

    I don't want to start a US versus UK thing, but,
    OK, Australia gets alot of british programs via the BBC => ABC link.
    So the British influence is felt strongly here in local humour I feel.
    The humour has always been based around a complex play on words or out there situations, and their culture has black twist to it. Think Monty Python, The Young Ones, Little Britain, League of Gentleman, Black Books...etc

    The US programs seem tame and lame by comparison, as they rely on
    slap-stick or purely verbal and in joke humour, IE Friends, Two and a Half Men, etc etc etc.

    My humble opinion don't shoot me.

    I'm a computer geek and didn't really find that video amusing. Just superfluously ingratiating.

    Classic British comedy, IMHO, was at it's best when it was understated.

    Read the thread title. Then read my post. The burden is not on me to further explain myself, but on your own ability to comprehend what you read. :idea:

    True that British comedy's charm does come from it's subtlety, but this one is all about the play on words with the technological age. I don't see an intended correlation to the repair field here, which is what makes it cute.

    I'm a pc tech, and I think it's just effing hilarious!

    British humour is the best.

    Do a search for "Yes Minister" and "Yes Prime Minister".

    Up there with the best of British humour.
    Sadly it doesn't seem to work with American audiences.
