Comedy sitcoms

Comedy series used to be so much better, there are still some good ones out there but in my opinion that golden era of comedy is not being repeated. These days most sitcoms are just geared towards a group of friends or family stuffed with overbearing sexual innuendos involving one two or in most cases all of them experiencing romantic affiliations. They want to portray a common person so audience can relate to it, yes a common person hopeless in relationships or oblivious to the fact of one both the best of friends even though their ideologies in life are filled with contradictions.

My most favoured ones that I still watch again and again, have to be blackadder, fawlty towers, red dwarf, father ted and the likes of that. We need to go back to situational comedy. I am not saying all are bad these days but most are just geared on getting the numbers up, art is truly lost in this world it seems.

        By these days I meant the past few years, the more famous one getting the most money in with their particular more favoured kind of comedy. That would be sitcoms like, castle, how i met your mother, big bang theory as well, scrubs used to, suits, friends back in the days, two and a half men.
        They revolve around the same idea of fail success success fail fail success relationships and the by product of their dealing with such situations is what creates the comic element in these programs – different variations of the same problems.
        But I also said at the end, “I am not saying all are bad these days but most are just geared on getting the numbers up, art is truly lost in this world it seems.”
        But there is always hope, as long as the UK keep on making comic sitcoms the results won’t be so bad even though if they dont rake in more money than their american counterparts. like I’m alan partridge, extras, the officeand the likes of that.

      3. I see. So really you’re comparing old British sitcoms with new American ones.

        No really what I am doing is jotting down a thought for that moment, doesnt necessarily have to be right or wrong and doesnt necessarily have to be agreeable to everyone. Instead of turning it into a discussion you have turned it into an exchange of snide remarks. It was a thought of the moment and not a review.
        And if you would have read it properly you would have understood what I was trying to say. There is a pattern building up these days may it be american or british or for that matter any sitcom. And patterns are usually set by most successful and popular sitcoms. This on and off relationship can be found in most sitcoms and it is what is getting the most views. And not that I dont like any of the new ones or dont watch them, it would be refreshing to see one break that pattern and make a new one.
