Click for larger image Man About The House
1973 Thames Television
A comedy great. Paula Wilcox and Sally Thomsett star as Chrissie and Jo, two flatmates sharing a central London flat. After a wild party, they find catering student Robin (Richard O'Sullivan) asleep in the bath. He's invited to stay when they discover his cooking beats theirs. These titles, filmed almost entirely outside Waterloo tube station, are highly amusing, if only because Thomsett's name appears over a shot of her wiggling bottom!

1990s
Click for larger image Written and created by Simon Nye, Men Behaving Badly centres around two beer swilling flatmates.  The series began on ITV and featured Gary (Martin Clunes) and Dermot (Harry Enfield).  ITV chose to cancel the show after two series and it was picked by the BBC, where it enjoyed much greater success and where Tony (Neil Morrissey) replaced Dermot as Gary's flatmate.  Their childish behaviour, constant TV watching and stupid conversations about women often gets them into trouble with Gary's girlfriend Dorothy (Caroline Quentin) and Deborah (Leslie Ash) from the flat above, the object of Tony's affection.

2009
Click for larger image Miranda Hart's sitcom is one of a handful ('Allo 'Allo, Rab C Nesbitt) in which the main character breaks "the fourth wall". Countless asides to and instances of direct eye contact with the viewer lend a refreshing masquerade of spontaneity to proceedings. Episodes conclude with Hart and a supporting cast including Sarah Hadland, Patricia Hodge, and Tom Ellis leaving the plot behind for a musical number.

2009 BBC Television
Click for larger image Viewers might notice similarities between Mock the Week and Whose Line is it Anyway? Dan Patterson and Mark Leveson devised both formats, swapping rounds of improvisational comedy on any given subject for rounds of off-the-cuff stand-up and one-liners on the week's news. Host Dara O'Briain recalls Clive Anderson in briskly awarding points to anyone or everyone just to move things along.
