Chase Away the Winter Blahs by Streaming These Notable British Sitcoms

Winter weather got you down?  I find the best way to fight the cold weather blahs is a good dose of British comedy. Sitcoms are a great antidote because they are short, efficient at lifting spirits and they’re brimming with chuckles and the occasional guffaw.

In aid of the communal mental health of British TV fans, I’ve compiled a list of stream-able UK comedy series. Each is celebrating an anniversary of sorts in 2018 and with this sort of variety you should be able to find one to suit your sense of humor. If you're unfamiliar with a particular show, test out the clips and see what tickles your fancy.

Six Free Episodes of Blackadder Available on iTunes This Week!

Rowan Atkinson has a new film hitting theaters this week, Johnny English Reborn, and in honor of its release, there's a really brilliant promotion going on. Did you love the comedy series Blackadder? Did you miss it, but are curious what all the fuss is about? Are you a huge Atkinson fan? Do you just love free downloadable TV?

Well, if the answer to any (or all) of those questions is yes, then run immediately to the iTunes store to snag your FREE download of the entire second series of Blackadder. Yeah, free as in to keep, not just rent. (I told you it was brilliant.)

The second series of Blackadder is set in the Elizabethan era, and features a fantastic guest turn from Miranda Richardson as the Queen herself. But, if you're interested, you'll have to hurry, as this particular promotion is only available until October 21st!

Cheers to BBC America's Anglophenia for the heads-up!
