Keeping Up Appearances
was my first exposure to British comedy. I became an instant fan. I've seen each episode a dozen times, but it never ceases to make me laugh. Love that Bucket woman.
It was even said a recent thread about Frasier
, that it was the most British American sitcom we've ever had.
I think a lot of Americans think British comedy consists of Are You Being Served, Keeping Up Appearances and Benny Hill.
They think of them as something on PBS. British television is a staple of the public broadcasting stations.
