The video above is from Look Around You, Robert Popper and Peter Serafinowicz’s classic parody of 1970s educational science films (series one) and 1980s TV youth science shows like Tomorrow’s World (series two). That’s just one of Chris Hardwick’s Picks to Click this week as we count down his list of the Top British Comedies of All Time, as determined by a scientific survey of himself.
Yes, Nerdist Week at BBC America continues over at the network’s website with Chris’ own list of his favorite British comedies. You can guess some, a couple may surprise you, and at least one doesn’t exist. Yet.
Go over there and read Chris’ picks, and maybe pick your own. My own list would have had Father Ted, Hancock’s Half Hour, Black Books, the original The Office, I’m Alan Partridge, and The IT Crowd included along with some of Chris’ picks. Definitely Fawlty Towers, definitely Spaced, definitely Look Around You, especially the first series. And you?
Oh, wait, almost forgot: Watch the Nerdist TV show on Saturday, September 24th, 10 pm Eastern, on BBC America, and tell your friends to do the same. I can’t stress that enough.
