The High Life was the first adult comedy I was allowed to watch as a nipper (I secretly watched The Word on my old bedroom TV, those opening titles were not supposed to be seen by an eight year old), anyone else remember it?



It wasn't the jokes I loved as I didn't really get them as a kid but just the whole camp nature of it. And Alan Cumming was brilliant.

In all honesty The Brittas Empire wasn't really that good. In fact most 90's British sitcoms were quite shit.

Reminded me of these two great creations. I thought the later King of the hill was fantastic

Unfortunately the only episode I recall is the one where they entered Eurovision.

Yeah, he did. Ben Chaplin played him in the first series, then got a break in Hollywood, so got replaced by Neil Stuke for the other two series -



I think the majority of people tend to prefer Chaplin in the role, but I think Stuke did an equally great job.

Game On was an integral part of my life in the '90s. Such an underrated sitcom and I'd still drink Samantha Janus' bathwater today (yes, I know she's changed her name now she's married, but she'll always be Mandy to me).




I remember this. Particularly an episode where the guy in the middle was in a band, and his agoraphobia meant that his performance was just screaming into a microphone. The performance got a rave review in the local paper though.

Haven't seen any Game On for years! Was good fun and I agree, unlike some actor replacements, I thought Stuke did well in the Matt role too. I seem to remember it taking a turn for the serious in the end and becoming a bit less fun - did Martin have a kid and a bit of a messy split with the mum or something?

On the same theme of comedy, I remember the likes of Red Dwarf, Rab C Nesbit and Bottom being on often after I'd come home from Scouts on a Friday evening.

This episode may have just creeped beyond the 90's but it was the climax of something very special.......



Fond memories of these also........... (perhaps for quite different reasons)




But undoubtedly the best of 90's comedy was this undilted genius .........

Started strong......


Got even better.

Yeah, he had a daughter with his ex-girlfriend who then gets married and moves to Australia with her. Mandy is revealed to have had a teenage pregnancy but gave the baby away, and then gets engaged to her boss who is killed on their wedding day.

It was still kind of played for laughs, but does sound weird when you write out what happened.

Yeah, this had just propted me to Wiki it - surprisingly serious elements for a sitcom! I might have to get it on DVD or try and find it online or something, reacquaint myself with it!

Someone mentioned Is It Bill Bailey? earlier, those are online too which is a good thing considering it was never repeated and not released on dvd- Episode 1 (the rest can be found on Youtube)

The Brass Eye special was originally broadcast in 2001, but the series aired in the mid-nineties. Brass Eye was amazing. The special was quite disturbing but it was a brilliant piece of satire.

I have to agree with Spaldron here - I absolutely loathed Brittas Empire. I couldn't stand The High Life or Game On either.

One of my favourite sit-coms of the 90s was Norman Lovett's I, Lovett. Yet another one series shown once and never repeated deal. Shame, cos it was quietly brilliant.


Which reminds me of a thread I made a few years ago, in which there are some more blasts from the past - http://www.empireonline.com/forum/tm.asp?m=491308&mpage=1&key=

The drugs episode is still the best... Joss Acklund's spunky-backpack!

I barely remember that show except the one time I watched it with my gran Freakazoid was spitting out his drink in surprise, but being a cartoon he did it over and over and over for like 10 seconds, and my nan did one of those hilarious "ooOOOOOOoooohhh" old women noises

It was a batshit insane show, loads of pop culture references. I was a teenager when it aired but I enjoyed the craziness of it. I love the theme tune- click

All of this Warner / Amblin stuff was proper class. It was slickly done. They really don't make them like this anymore.
