All

If you are into the Sitcoms then I would like to hear more about it. More like recommendations.

I am totally into Simpsons, Family Guy and How I met your mother. I used to watch some in late 90s back home. Started with US once recently.

The problem though with some of them is they get boring after 2 seasons or may be 3. I would still rate Family Guy as good one. Any other strong recommendations?

Cheers
Timpy
Since you're obviously into animation, Futurama and since you're into Family Guy you would probably like American Dad and possibly also South Park.

Live actors, definitely The Big Bang Theory, a brainy show with some lines that only brainiacs would get. Modern Family is a good one, you might like The Middle. Two and A Half Men. Going with older in no particular order, Seinfeld, Wings, Cheers, Everybody Loves Raymond, Arrested Development (unusual), Scrubs, Married with Children.

Just read thru some other posts, absolutely Curb Your Enthusiasm. Another vote for The new adventures of Old Christine, Dear John another good one.

I will put a vote in for Peep Show, Gavin and Stacey and the IT Crowd. I also liked the original UK version of Coupling.

Of older stuff Men Behaving Badly is a classic.

Re: Best Sitcom..

Since there's been a number of Arrested Development fans here I just saw this.

Yes! After years of waffling, a fourth season of Arrested Development is finally in the works. AND it'll tie into the movie they're planning, too. This is incredible news. And even better that it might run on Netflix come 2013.

ArrDev creator Mitch Hurtwitz spoke about the show at this weekend's The New Yorker festival, stating that the new season will have a 10-episode run focusing on each of the Bluth family members. Jason Bateman even confirmed as much via Twitter late last night. According to Deadline Hollywood, the show's producers have also been in talks with Netflix and Showtime to find an outlet for a comeback in 2013, 10 years after its initial run.

Obviously, seeing the show return in any form is great. But this is the right move for Netflix, and if they succeed it's good for everyone. Netflix has already made the push for original programming, developing the remake of David Fincher's House of Cards with Kevin Spacey. Television is reportedly outpacing movie streaming on the site—thanks to big-name properties like Star Trek and Mad Men, I'm sure. And the planned 2013 run will probably coincide with when the recently-inked DreamWorks streaming deal will finally come through, creating as close to a critical mass of solid content as Netflix has ever enjoyed. With Arrested Development's built-in fandom, the new season could very well see the kind of popularity that they never enjoyed on Fox, and Netflix will be galvanized to look for even more great content.

Even though 2013 is pretty far away and lots can happen in the interim, if Netflix can hold their shit together, their platform will be an excellent place to be for anyone to watch.
