    I loved Parks & Recreation and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, but haven't watched other tv sitcoms at all recently, cos they're mostly shite.
    So, please recommend me some that I can check out!

    Silicon Valley - am eagerly awaiting the Fourth Series - hits the nail on the head re the title. Quite like Crashing on Sky Atlantic.

    Ooh yes, will have a look, though I'm not a huge fan of The Thick Of It

    It's broader, more gentle. I prefer the earlier series.

    D'wards I'm an excellent driver

    I quite like The Goldbergs. Its gentle, but charming and funny, and the 80s references are good

    Modern Family. Short episodes (25 mins) so great for filling a quick gap and I have yet to come across one I didn't find laugh out loud funny.
