Morning all once again, i feel i ought to apologise for the inconsistant timings of the threads this week ... but i'm on holiday and i'm not your slave so you can all feck right off

Today SHOULD be a foregone conclusion, but i fear the landslide could be in the other direction :'(

In the Red, White and Blue corner we have a hilarious comedy that every single lad out there can relate to, while over in the green, white and orange one there's some pile of poo about god fearing potato snafflers .. or something

Its Men Behaving Badly (Einstein) vs Father Ted (pubey)

Men behaving Badly all day long for me. One of the best british sitcoms ever done IMO

If Men Behaving Badly wins this I will be disgusted. Anyone who votes for that over Father Ted deserves a big kick up the arse

oh am in a right quandry with this one. Love Father Ted but also enjoyed men behaving badly, trouble is they were both from different era's.

Think will leave this one till the last possibly moment

MBB though funny was basically one long running knob gag. Father Ted is some of the most inpired creative comedy writing of all time with arguably four of the greatest sitcom characters ever. How they thought of some of those storylines and the little surreal twists and turns, for me its pure genius on another level to "solid" sitcoms like Only Fools and MBB.

Hear hear. The sketch when a gang of priests get lost in a department store lingerie section is pure genius.

Speed 3 as well with the milk float. Every episode a classic. Strong cast and some brilliant minor characters- Bishop Brennan, Peter and Mary, Dick Byrne and Cyril, Father Larry Duff.
