Shame you've only included 70's sitcoms here as theres quite a few 80's ones too that would do well with a reboot of some kind.

The Young Ones, Blackadder, Only Fools and Horses, Red Dwarf.

Or for an honourable mention... Desmond's. One of the few great British sitcoms with an all black main cast.

No Allo' Allo', One Foot in the Grave or Father Ted!? I miss out Dad's Army due to the honourable title mention. But... You have missed out actual classics to include some that aren't (Terry and June). However, I can't Fawlt (see what I've done there) your run down of Fawlty Towers!

'My Parents Are Aliens' (1999-2006) was a bloody good British sitcom! The sci-fi angle would put bums on seats, if nothing else. The show sadly disappeared (the endless re-runs don't count) when itv did away with in-house children's television production; 'junk food' ads were banned during kids shows, so it was more profitable for itv to show the likes of 'Midsomer Murders' in the vacated slot.

A film version of Father Ted would be awesome :)

And it just can't be remade without those two stars. Just can't. If you think it can then look at the gapingly obvious hole at the centre of the ill-judged Open All Hours reboot.
