    If you had to pick 5 of your favorite sitcoms, what would they be? Don't include first run shows--just sitcoms from the past.

    In no particular order:

    Newhart (the one where he owns the inn, not when he was a psychologist)
    Mary Tyler Moore Show
    All in the Family
    Seinfeld
    Three's Company

    lol Mannix and Star Trek are not sitcoms. Maybe you thought they were. Lost in Space could be funny.

    Hard to think offhand, there are so many, but at the moment I can think of

    The Office (uk version)
    Family Guy (I view it as a cartoon sit com)
    Coupling
    Girls on Top - an 80's comedy, which was rubbish but incredibly silly
    The Royle Family

    I also like Only Fools and Horses, I don't find it particularly funny but it's often quite touching

    There were a few sitcoms, mainly old ones that I absolutely loathed -

    'allo, 'allo
    On the Buses
    Are You Being Served
    It Ain't Half Hot Mum

    The Brittas Empire, Blackadder and Black Books were good too, I've had more than five haven't I :)

    I'd include Jeeves and Wooster but not sure that counts as a sitcom.
