If you are one of those people who's seen garishly dressed Indian actors dancing in your country's streets, this is to assure you, we don't always look like idiots.
Canned laughter in a comedy show is pretty much what I need to switch it off. I am sure there are plenty of you who loath it as much and here's a list to pick the ones which lived on the merit of their comedy alone.
Do suggest good shows which I can add to this over time.
Note: Admittedly, as the list keeps growing, there will be shows which I'd add even though I didn't find them funny or those that I haven't even watched. Those that I enjoyed watching will have a little comment suggesting that.
A list of great and invaluable films made over years of cinema's history, watching which should give you a fictional, but more relevant, degree of education.

Films with what appear to be exercises in the avant garde to get in some nudity Or the skin show is just a Trojan to peddle art past unsuspecting viewers
These films/shows are what I'd watched expecting nothing more than for a good viewing experience, but which turned out to be much more.
This is not a favourite or best-of list. This is a possible sequence to appreciate and experience the works of one of the great film-makers ever. And it is not to suggest his other films outside this list aren't good/great.
