It is roundly acknowledged that Britain’s greatest ever comedy is Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s, “The Office.” However the antics of Jeremy and Mark have produced almost four times as many episodes as the often-lauded classic set in Slough. It’s rude, crude, and painstakingly funny.
“Freaks and Geeks”
Before turning out the likes of “Bridesmaids” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin”, Paul Feig and Judd Apatow, got together to make one of the most beloved drama series in American network history. However, it only lasted for 18 episodes before it was mercilessly dropped by NBC, but has since found a cult following due to DVD sales.
Mitch Hurwitz’s “Arrested Development” is rightly regarded as the most innovative and progressive comedy in recent memory. Its stars, Jason Bateman, Michael Cera, David Cross, and Will Arnett, have now become Hollywood royalty because of their portrayals in the show, despite this it was canceled after only 3 seasons. But don’t worry; it’s on its way back in 2013.
Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg were propelled into the cinematic glitterati because of their unique television series, which was like "The Simpsons," without the animation. However it never managed to receive the viewing figures it deserved, and Wright and Pegg’s work on “Shaun of the Dead” has since outshone it.
Another English comedy, but one that is still in its infancy and only its second season. It revolves around three inseparable friends on the verge of 30, named Amy, Mitch, and Richie, who after a night out have an unplanned threesome which impregnates Amy.
