'Goodness Gracious Me' is probably one of Britain's best comedies and it's a shame it only aired for a couple of seasons. The show was comprised of sketches portraying a humorous take on Indian culture in the UK, poking fun at both Asians and British alike without causing offence (and those who were offended almost always were the uptight politically correct). The four performers of the show-- Meera Syal, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Kulvinder Ghir and Nina Wadia-- all threw themselves into their various roles, bringing their outlandish characters to life and clearly had much fun doing so.

Particularly hilarious sketches included the fat spoilt boy, the father who thinks everything comes from India and Mr 'Check Please'. Although 'Goodness Gracious Me' sadly only lasted for such a short time, I recommend 'The Kumars at No. 42' as a nice compliment to the show. Also, for comedies with a similar theme of making fun of a culture/section of society, check out 'Chewin' The Fat' (a hilarious Scottish comedy) and 'Father Ted' which is a side-splitting insight into the lives of three unconventional Irish priests.
