Whoops Baghdad, styled very closely on Up Pompeii.

Frankie Howerd as a Muslim. I wonder why this hasn't been repeated for a while.

I did and like you thought it was laboured. When you think about the great shows of the past the longer they go on the more they should have been allowed to slide away.

Fawlty Towers, only two series and still after almost fifty years still worth a watch
When you actually feel anger over a place like this it's time to get a life

Watched the first couple of episodes and couldn't get into it.
Please do not confuse Denis Ovens with Denisovans.

Oh right. Forgive my surprise, I wasn't particularly expecting an answer!

Things like Veep and Curb Your Enthusiasm have completely passed me by... I'm looking for a US sitcom with 20-minute eps.

Curb eps are longer, but well worth it.

1st 3 Seasons of Arrested Development are great too.

Onto season 9 of The Simpsons.
Skipped a few episodes (and most of season 2) which I've seen countless times before.

'The Principal and The Pauper' is one of the worst episodes of the "golden era". So, skip.
Not removing till ITV take John Rawling off TV.

I've skipped through a fair few of the episodes.
Only because I've seen them countless times on BBC2, Channel 4 and Sky 1 over the years.

It is interesting to see what they cut out from the TV broadcasts, though.
I never knew until a few years ago, that the episode where Homer becomes sanitation commissioner. The word "wanker" is uttered at least twice.
