    The only one I watch now is The Office.

    My favorites would be Cheers and Seinfeld, I guess.

    Extras doesn't do it for me but I'll second the British and US "Office" sitcoms as time well spent.

    "Arrested Development" is my all time favorite - funny on a whole number of different levels - but one needs to be smart enough to understand the jokes sometimes - which I think is why it failed (it officially "jumped the shark", when guest star Henry Winkler hopped over a dead shark on the dock)

    I'd say the same thing about Extras. Helps if you get the cultural differences in British humor too.

    I would guess so - though I "get" the original "office" just find that he's way way over on the "subtle" spectrum with Extra's - I guess I "get" it but its not doing it for me.

    Carrol O'Connor's malapropisms alone were enough to put All in the Family way over the top.

    Beat me to it!
    They did stuff on that show that would be scandalous today. I love the way they took things in America head on.

    I can't disagree with any of the ones have been posted. I guess you could include Taxi, Cheers, WKRP and all the old sitcoms that had some really classic scenes.

    You are right Michael, especially WKRP(As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly).

    Seinfeld
    All in the Family
    The Dick Van Dyke Show
    MASH
    The Mary Tyler Moore Show

    I could watch any of those all day and all night and not be bored for a minute.

    Of the more modern shows, I'd like to add Curb Your Enthusiasm into the mix. Brilliantly-conceived, written and acted.
