I just have not seen many British sitcoms that I'v liked, except for Ricky Gervais' "Extras". That show used to have me in stitches. I caught every episode and sadly lamented it's death. weird though, I saw some of his original Office episodes and still prefer the American version. I saw Couples and part of an episode of Red Dwarf and neither grabbed me.
But I do plan on checking out some of the shows mentioned here on Netflix. I prefer subtle, but am not totally opposed to broad comedy. Any suggestions welcome.
