Do you prefer US or UK sitcoms and why?

For me there is a big difference between the UK and US sitcoms, both have some great shows but for me as a whole I prefer UK sitcoms but some of the US shows are my favourites. What do you think?

  • I would advise editing your topic to include a more focused approach. Just what about the sitcoms do you think makes UK ones better? Filming? Writing? Ect.I would suggest maybe looking into the shooting styles and the humour styles between the US and UK. They are actually quite varied. – LondonFog 4 years ago

  • A agree with @Christien ^^ I believe that a more direct analysis would be necessary- Perhaps try taking some shows that have both US and UK counterparts and comparing and contrasting them would create a better piece. What social issues do US/UK sitcoms seem to present more? What is "funnier" to their respective audiences? Do these TV shows have any success in the opposite market? – AndyJanz 4 years ago

Amazing movie, I must have seen it 20 times.

It wouldn’t be the same without it. I think medieval England on which some of the ideas are based was a violent time and place and, although GoT is not set specifically in this time, the level of violence shown emulates this

The first 4-5 seasons were amazing and then it really started to deteriorate.

Still a classic though, one of those comedies where you truly care about the characters.

Awesome article. I think the appeal of Walter

White is that many people would do be more like him in many ways if the fear of consequences were removed and that makes him highly relatable.

Not saying we would all go out killing people but if the fear was removed as it is when Walt first gets cancer people would behave very differently, of course it would probably be very bad for man kind in the long run!
