Coupling was great. I liked Game On and Gimme Gimme Gimme was in brilliant bad taste, both just before Coupling if I remember correctly. For a short while the British sit-com seemed to be in good health again...until it keeled over and died in the 2000/2010s. 'Still Open All Hours' and the remade 'Porridge' are perfect examples of everything that's wrong with TV comedy today. There's still the odd gem to be winkled out but what passes for comedy on TV these days is mostly dross.
I didn't used to need the internet, my wife knew everything.
Tell you all what I find REALLY funny is when TV gets the puss ripped right out of it. There's some classic examples like when the current affairs program tried to pin down the Sunday Sport about the rot they print and were totally set up. Great stuff.
Or when the police weren't very media savvy.... Mersey Blues. Hard to find as all the cops in it were crooked as fork. Super.
