My chronic pain sometimes takes me completely out of commission. At that point, there's only one thing to do: steam British comedies on Netflix.
An oldie but goodie! Rowan Atkinson (of Mr. Bean fame) plays essentially the same character, placed in different time periods each season.
Geeks of all nations know this gem, but the average American might not. Classic office comedy with a light techie twist.
The original that inspired the American classic. The British version is even more awkward, and therefore (if you're a British humor fan) funnier.
Starring Simon Pegg of "Shaun of the Dead"), Spaced dances the line between hilarious and painfully awkward... which really aren't that different, in the end.
Unless you're British, you may never have heard of this sketch show, but it's well worth the "Look."
I hope this space-themed office-type comedy returns to the world of Netflix streaming soon! I miss it greatly.
