The situation comedy, or sitcom to give it it’s more well known nom de plume, has always been one of the most popular of TV show genres. It’s a genre that television is particularly well suited for too, the small scale box in the corner (at least until our recent conversion to giant wall dominating LCD screens anyway) perfectly suited to the often domestic tribulations of shows like Meet The Wife, Terry and June, The Good Life and Rising Damp. Not to say that there isn’t room for the way out, almost every concept has found it’s way into sitcomland – from high concept Red Dwarf to the historical antics of Blackadder.
