Has been named as one of the best British comedies. AIBU to think it would only make sense to people that were brought up in similar circumstances? I mean, the whole program takes place in a living room. We occasionally get to see the kitchen but I’d say over 90% of the program is focussed on the sofa in front of the TV. I’ve asked people from wealthy backgrounds if they find it funny and they always say they don’t get what’s supposed to be funny !
AIBU to think you’d have to have experienced that life to get the joke?
I don't know. I've never been an Irish Catholic priest but I still find Father Ted hilarious. Friends was a huge hit here despite most people not living in New York apartments. My very middle class dad loved The Royle Family. I don't think humour is limited to the people it is about.
