My favourite comedy show of all time is 'Frasier' but hot on its heels is 'Modern Family'.

What a tour de force that is! Every episode is a gem and constantly makes me belly laugh.
Every actor delivers in this programme whether it's the kids or the old pros like Ed O'Neill.

Superb.

I agree that Modern Family is tops in television comedy. ajb007/martini  Right up there with The Big Bang Theory for me.

A new BBC production commencing next year that may be of interest.. Neal Purvis and Robert Wade will write the script for SS-GB, which is based on Len Deighton's alternate history novel of the same name. The five part series is set in Nazi-occupied London and imagines that Germany won the Battle of Britain.

A few years later, an author called Robert Harris wrote a.very similar book.called "Fatherland". The literary critics gave it a lot more coverage and praise than Deighton's.

My girlfriend and I have been binge-watching 'Sons of Anarchy' on Netflix, ran out of those episodes and have been keeping up with the current season...the series is going to end in two episodes---it is dark, violent...and exceedingly entertaining.
