Favorite sitcom of your generation?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I don't know if Benny Hill was a sitcom but as damn funny.

Only Fools and Horses, every episode was a classic.

The mid sixties shows like Get Smart, Hogan’s Heroes, Jeannie, Beverly Hillbillies, Petticoat Junction, Green Acres were sharp and original.
I read somewhere that they came about because all the talented Jews and gays and commies were driven out of the film industry by McCarthysism.
