OK, who is your pick for the Premiership Title?

# Team Played Points
1 Newcastle United 18 36
2 Arsenal 18 33
3 Liverpool 17 33
4 Leeds United 18 32
5 Manchester United 18 30
6 Chelsea 17 27
7 Tottenham Hotspur 18 27
8 Aston Villa 18 27

10 Fulham 17 23
11 Sunderland 18 23
12 Blackburn Rovers 18 22

16 Middlesbrough 17 19
17 Southampton 17 16

Da Ali G Show
Absolutely Fabulous
Eastenders
Whose line is it anyway?
Red Dwarf
Only Fools and Horses
Teletubbies (sorry)
Tweenies (sorry)
Johnathan Creek
So Graham Norton

and loads of other crap

anyways, all you need to know is:
Don't support Derby County, we suck right now :(

yup ali g started off with a 5 minute slot on a tv show, it was very funny. As soon as he had his own show and became famous he went completely ****e. He was funny because celebrities didnt know who he was or wtf he was talking about, but as soon as he became a celeb himself he should have given it up!!!

mr bean and some mothers do ave em???? they're terrible!(the young ones was good) How about Only Fools and Horses, which IMO shames any other sitcom EVER! Its so funny it makes my stomach hurt.

Other decent brit comedies,

'Im Alan Partridge'

The first three series of 'Red Dwarf'

cant think of anything else that comes close to those three.

Easy Natty you gave us Neighbours, Home and Away, Sons and Daughters, and wait for it PRISONER CELL BLOCK H!!!! i know they are not comedies but at times I do wonder!

Aaaaahahaha :D :)
It would help if they were in the Premiership for a start, but they suck ass

BTW Ali G rules, I've been watching him since his first slot on the 11 o' Clock Show. Guess it appeals to my kind of humour (which is quite varied). I think British comedy's the best, but America definately has the best and funniest cartoons (and alot of damn funny sitcoms too, but there are so mnay more good sitcoms in British history that we have to win on that count IMO)
I guess it all depends on your upbringing, how prudish/outgoing you are and if you like fart/sex jokes :)

To quote Friday's Faily Guy:
Peter - "As we all know, Christmas is that mystical time of year when the ghost of Jesus rises from the grave to feed on the flesh of the living. So we all sing Christmas carols to lull him back to sleep"
Someguy called Bob - "Outrageous! How dare he say such blasphemy. I've gotta do something"
Bob's buddy - "Bob, there's nothing you can do"
Bob - "Well, I... guess I'll just have to develop a sense of humour"

I think the only time I've ever been offended by something on TV is some joke against the British on Friends about rugby. I remember feeling really pissed because I think Ross said something about it being a pansy sport of something and I was like "Hello!!! Look at AMERICAN FOOTBALL. You wear helmets and huge amounts of padding. You might as well be in suit of armour or be using robots to play for you". But then I realised I was just being stupid and I've never been offended about anything ever again (even the British jokes on Family Guy/South Park). If it's well-written and funyn it won't offend me

Man I talk crap

Feed the birds, tuppence a bag, tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a baaaag
