Space core directive
One of the finest comedies of all time, well written, greta cast, dodgy special effects. All that you expect from brit scifi/sitcom. I'd also recommend you read the books as they are some of the funniest things I have ever read (and I've read a french instruction manual)
I loved the idea of an average man (ok, well below average slob) being the last hope for mankind, it gives us all the chance to believe you too can be a hero (of sorts). It hasn't encouraged me to eat curry or wear zoot suits, but has made me laugh consistently since I saw the 1st episode way back when. I was watching a couple of the series recently and still I laughed loudly despite already knowing the punchlines and woofers. I can recommend, if you have the DVD's, watching the show with the cast commentaries on as they are almost as funny as the original show and give a good insight into what made the show the hit that it was. worth it just for Norm's joke 'No man is an island, except when he is in the bath'
