    So, what was funny about it. Other than canned laughter?

    I quite liked the American comedy “Soap” 1977-1981 that took the pi*s out of soaps.

    Whilst America often p*sses me off, I must say I found both "Seinfeld" and "Curb your Enthusiasm" very funny, especially the latter.

    It's not my idea of funny anyway, that's programmes like Fawlty Towers and Phoenix Nights and although they reckon Friends is filmed in front of a live audience, the canned laughter is just so bloody annoying.

    It always seems that American comedy is slightly forced. Hence laughter tracks.

    Totally agree Isca. I don't know which is worse the Yanks or the Germans with their complete lack of humour ?
