British classic comedy:

Dear John - wonderful, poignant sitcom about a man joining a social club for divorced people

Father Dear Father- very funny 1960s series, at times endearingly old fashioned but also surprisingly progressive for its time

Absolute Power - oddly under-known TV comedy starring Stephen Fry as a masterful, amoral PR manipulator. Biting, accurate satire on the UK media, celebrity culture and politics, in some ways the "Yes, Minister" of its time
