British comedy undergoes a re-name for American audience.


A 2014 British TV series. "Scrotal recall" as a title was too much for Prudeland and has been retitled "Lovesick".

A whole new ball game: the unlikely return of STI sitcom Scrotal Recall ...

Nov 16, 2016 - It was the romcom with the terrible title that no one was surprised to see cancelled. But now Scrotal Recall is back with a new name ... Lovesick.

Is it a funny show? I think many Americans don't always catch onto British shows. I don't know why though. There is a handful of them I can think of that I've really enjoyed over the years.

Monty Python's Flying Circus
Benny Hill
Are You Being Served
Fawlty Towers
As Time Goes By
Mrs. Brown's Boys
Mr. Bean

My sister used to tape Keeping Up Appearances for me. One year I sent her a box DVD set of Doc Marten. She has always found those funnier than I have. I've never got the humor in Monty Python or Benny Hill, though they put my friends in stitches.

Benny Hill was very much of its time and Monty Python was an acquired taste - for me it was splashes of genius in a sea of rubbish.

Some of my favorites, Only Fools and Horses, Vicar of Dibley, Porridge, Ab Fab, Dinner Ladies, Men Behaving Badly, One Foot in the Grave, The League of Gentlemen. There is one American comedy I can think of I thought we did better, All in the Family compared to Till Death do us Part and I thought Norman Lear did it way better.

Maybe old fashioned but I always got a kick out of Ronnie Corbett, he just passed away last year.

Porridge is being remade with Fletchers grandson (I think) in the lead role its very true to the original and very good

League of Gentlemen is back with a new series starting next week - Ill see how it goes I loved the dark humour of the original
