Knock, knock, knock readers! Knock, knock, knock readers! Knock, knock, knock readers! Hey friends I’m back with an article on the topic of most popular English entertainment series of the 20th century. There have been some really amazing shows that have exemplary one liners, chuckle some stories and bizarre slapstick. Their fabulous comic timing and amazing stories are the reasons why English comedies are so close to our hearts. So here is a list of my of course favorite comedy series so stay tuned…
The Big Bang Theory- An American sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady. The show is primarily centered on five characters living in Pasadena, California. Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper, both physicists; and Penny, a waitress and aspiring actress who lives across the hall; and Leonard and Sheldon’s equally geeky and socially awkward friends and co-workers, aero science engineer Howard Wolowitz and astrophysicist Raj Koothrapalli. The geekiness and intellect of the four guys is contrasted for comic effect with Penny’s social skills and common sense.
Two and a half men- The series revolved initially around the life of the Harper brothers: Charlie and Alan and Alan’s son, Jake. Charlie is a bachelor who writes commercial jingles for a living while leading a hedonistic lifestyle. When Alan’s wife Judith decides to divorce him, he moves into Charlie’s Malibu beach house, with Jake coming to stay over the weekends. Charlie’s housekeeper is Berta, a sharp-tongued woman who initially resists the change to the household but grudgingly accepts it.
Friends- Rachel Green flees her wedding day and seeks out childhood friend Monica Geller, a New York City chef. They become roommates, and Rachel joins Monica’s social circle of single people: struggling actor Joey Tribbiani, business professional Chandler Bing, masseuse and musician Phoebe Buffay, and newly divorced paleontologist Ross Geller, Monica’s older brother. To support herself Rachel becomes a waitress at Central Perk, the Manhattan coffeehouse where the group often hangs out; when not there, the six are usually at Monica and Rachel’s nearby West village apartment, or Joey and Chandler’s across the hall.
Glee- An American musical comedy-drama television series. It focuses on the fictitious William McKinley High School glee club, New Directions, which competes on the show choir competition circuit while its disparate members deal with relationships, sexuality, social issues, and learning to become an effective team. The initial twelve-member cast included club director and Spanish teacher Will Schuester cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury, Will’s wife Terri and eight club members played by Dianna, Chris, Kevin, Lea, Amber, Mark and Jenna.
How I met your mother- The series revolves around Ted Mosby narrating the story of how he met Tracy McConnell mother to his children. While living in New York City and working as an architect, the narrative deals with his best friends, including the long-lasting couple Marshall Eriksen and Lily Aldrin, the eccentric, womanizer-playboy Barney Stinson and news anchor Robin Scherbatsky. The series explores many storylines, including a love triangle between Robin, Ted, and Barney; Marshall and Lily’s relationship; as well as the careers of the characters.
The Simpsons- The Simpsons are an archetypical family who live in a fictional “Middle American” town of Springfield. Homer, the father, works as a safety inspector at the Springfield nuclear power plant, a position at odds with his heedless, buffoonish personality. He is married to Marge Simpson, a stereotypical American house wife and mother. They have three children: Bart, a ten-year-old troublemaker; Lisa, a premature eight-year-old activist; and Maggie, the baby of the family who rarely speaks, but communicates by sucking on a pacifier. The family owns a dog, Santa’s, and a cat, Snowball V.
So these were some of my favorite English comedy series that made me double up with laughter. So do watch them if you still haven’t because laughter is the best medicine. So long readers…
