Lee Marvin? Do you maybe mean James Coburn in the Our Man Flint movies?

I remember Ice Pirates, that was funny.

I only watched a few episodes but TV series Lexx had some funny stuff like when the Stanly character was hired as a fluff guy for a porn movie.

Would Garth Marenghi's Dark Place fit the criteria?

My best friend has suggested Hyperdrive starring Miranda Hart. I have never seen it myself.

Re: any good scifi comedy?

Starring is an exaggeration. Miranda plays third officer hopelessly in love with the Captain played by Nick Frost (Simon Pegg's bud.) who really hasn't noticed her infatuation.

It's oh-dear-funny, not haw-haw-funny.

But there's only 12 episodes, so if you power through, it'll all be filed away in your brain before you start to get ill.

Re: any good scifi comedy?

The Beeb would have been better off making 12 more episodes of Red dwarf rather than Hyperdrive. But alas that didn't happen.

Re: any good scifi comedy?

The beeb did make another 12 episodes of Red Dwarf.

Hyperdrive fizzeled out years ago, but they're still making Red Dwarf.

The last BBC Red Dwarf was made in 1999. Hyperdrive came along a few years after that.

To dirty foreigners, all companies broadcasting in Britain are BBC.

I am not sure if it was made by the BBC or not, but have the three part 'Back to Earth" Red Dwarf in 2009 (which I thought was crap) and Season 10 of Red Dwarf came out in 2012. I only really like one of the 6 episodes of that (the one with Jesus in it).

Lister will eventually travel back in time and name the network that is already airing Red Dwarf after himself.

(They made a similar joke in Back to Earth.)

Back to Earth and series 10 were made by and broadcast on Dave, which is run by UKTV, which is part owned by BBC Worldwide, which is a commercial subsidiary of the BBC.

Oh right, I didn't know that. In Australia it aired on the ABC, which is our non-commercial TV.

Then I stand partially corrected.
