I agree with Victor and Margaret (I cried when he was killed!!). That has to be my favourite comedy series ever!!!

I also like Ben and Susan Harper from My Family, and of course Tom and Barbara Good from the Good Life.

And back in the mists of time, Terry and June!!!

Tom and Barbara, agreed.
Rodney and Cassandra from Only Fools and Horses.
Al and Peg from Married with Children.
Basil and Sybil from Fawlty Towers.

Why is it that sitcom couples are always feuding? That just ain't funny...women are almost always portrayed as nags and men as thoroughly henpecked.

Probably because everyone likes to laugh at others misfortunes! Sadly it works though, as you know that Sybil will always better Basil but it's funny.

Tom and Barbara Good from the Good Life didn't argue or nag so much, and Tom often got the better hand.

Arty, Victoria Wood for ever; yes I agree with your choices of Tony and Bren. I think 'Dinnerladies' with of course 'Fawlty Towers' and 'One Foot in the Grave'are the best sit-coms ever. I always liked OFITG for its theme-song, written & composed by Eric Idle i believe.

my fave line in dinnerladies is "'ive got high blood pressure and water retention. you know what that gives you?'
'Boiling water?'"

basil and sybil rule too

Oh yes, that line is classic! Another good one -

"What's on TV tonight"
"Syphilis - the Delius Myth"
"Delia Smith hasn't got syphilis! Her worktops are spotless"
