    British comedy has never looked so good. I remember when I was younger, they used to always show Mr. Bean on PBS on Saturday nights. Are there any Mr. Bean fans here?

    Sorry about the quality.

    Rowan Atkinson as "Mr. Bean" is just plain wonderful. I'm quite fascinated by a character of so few words yet who communicates comedy in volumes. Plus ya gotta love the bond between a man and his teddy!

    I remember catching some episodes on tv.

    My favourite episodes (don't know the real titles):

    *The Swimming Pool

    *The Beach (we find out that at the end the old man is blind)

    *The Amusement Park

    *Christmas Episode
    ~~
    I also enjoy "Are You Being Served?" and "Keeping Up Appearances" (which still rerun once in a while) "My Family" was ok.

    5 years after it aired, I'm still perplexed as to why they covered this on "I Love The 80s 3-D", even though it wouldn't debut until 1990. It was probably the last "I Love The 80s" they were ever going to do, so they missed out on their last opportunity to cover "Batman".

    I always did enjoy "Mr. Bean", though. The slapstick was always hilarious...Atkinson really knew his comedy. I need to watch some "Black Adder", though...I've never seen that, and it would be interesting to see Atkinson in anothe role.

    I loved and always will love Mr.Bean! His character is unique and hilarious. His relationship with Teddy is cute.

    There is not one episode I don't love, but the episode I absolutely loved are The Exam, the episode where he was on a train with the laughing man, when he was in the movie theater with his girlfriend watching a horror movie and when he tried making a sandwich in the park.

    I think I have most to all episodes recorded. And besides, it's usually playing on some French channels, too!

    In high school, we had a kid who looked just like Mr. Bean...and yes, we referred to him as Mr. Bean.

    I've always been a Mr. Bean fan. I have "The Whole Bean" complete series box set on DVD and I've seen both of the movies. One of my favorite Bean moments is when he's singing in church and he doesn't know the words of the song and he comes to the "Hallelujah" part and he sings it loudly and it's hilarious.

    That's one of my favorites too. Also the one where he goes to the hospital and the one where he takes an exam.

    I really enjoy the Mr. Bean episode where he "fixes-up" his apartment.

    Bean wasn't always sweet and innocent. Sometimes he could be a mischievous bugger:

    I love the episode where he accidentally gets this baby and has to take care of it. Very funny. And I even like the early episode, thought it was really sad, where his beloved car gets smashed.
