British TV shows

with 9 comments

Some of you’ve asked me about British TV shows. Here a dear friend of mine -too 🙂 – recommend us some.

Just like he points out, browse the BBC Comedy index, and then check if you can find the comedy show you want at YouTube.com

My own recommendation: ‘Little Britain

3rd world country…LOL.

Here’s a list with the 50 Greatest Sketches of all time.

And Channel 4’s list. I really like their number ONE! (Little Britain “Swimming Pool”): Watch this man with ‘slight fear of water’ (HAHAHA)

  1. Hi,
    i really recomend the TV show ‘The ITCrowd’.
    It is about the daily adventures of two nerds
    that work on the basement of a international enterprise skycraper. The show is british so it´s not impossible to understand, anyway you can find the subtitles in the internet.

  2. Hi Luis,
    When you say that the ‘show is Brit so it’s not impossible to understand it’…you mean that American Shows are the difficult ones?

    Btw (By the way) I have already asked the UPV Library to buy the IT Crowd Box set. Let’s keep fingers crossed…

    Thanks a lot for the link!

  3. Hi,

    I’ve just watched IT Crowd and thank you Luis i’ve discovered a funny and crazy tv show.
    I really liked the matter of this Tv Show because i’m working like them (in the same job) and i can say that almost what they try to critize it’s true (If you have a problem with your computer turn on again jajajajajaja).
    Although they haven’t told the worst things of this job 😉 i hope in the next chapter they show them.

    bye bye

  4. I like when one of them says: “do you know how a button works? No, not on clothes!…are you from the past??!!” hahaha, brilliant.

    You can even buy a T-shirt with that brilliant line on it here.

    By the way, all episodes here.

  5. Hello,

    Yesterday i watched the first episode of the second season of IT Crowd, and i don’t have words to describe this episode because it AWESOMEEEE, if you want to laugh this is your episode because you’ll laugh since the beginning till the end, for me is a laughter therapy (risoterapia jejejeje i didn’t know how to say it in english).

    I left here a link when you can download the episodes and subtitles as well in english, it’s a good practice for thoses who want to learn english .

    See ya
