    We get into old sitcoms like

    All in the family
    Sanford and son
    MASH (always a favorite)

    I have also been watching a lot of BBC comedies like

    Chewing the fat
    Still Game
    Green wing
    Black Books

    Saw them all, I'm a loyal fan of the brothers', but my list includes all the "hits" , I suppose.
    As I age, I get harder to please, cinematically.
    I long for clever simplicity, and great plot twists with unique, quirky, and unforgettable characters.
    I'm a dilettante with regards to films.

    Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Life of Brian, Good Fellows comes to mind.

    This scene is probably my most favorite sequence in any film.

    Miller's Crossing is great, just watched it the other night, definitely on my list, even though it wasn't on my list.

    I would probably add Fast Times at Ridgemont High as well, I can watch that movie every day.

    "The Major and the Minor" with Ginger Rogers and Ray Milland. If you've never seen it, seek it out; it is easily the funniest movie ever made!

    When I travel to countries where English is not spoken, I take my DVD sets of Big Bang Theory. Some people love it, some people hate, I enjoy it and it's easy to watch over and over again.

    There are many, many others, but those are the two that immediately came to mind.

    Just about any 50s, 60s or 70s sci-fi/horror movie does it for me, usually the cheesier the better. I love it when channels run marathons of Godzilla movies or old Twilight Zone episodes.

    OK, you guys are gonna cringe with all the manly suggestions I read on the first page. But you said "comfort".

    Love Actually. No, I don't normally like that kind of thing. I remember watching it with my wife, probably around the holidays, when it was relatively new. The cast just kept coming. So many good people. So many interlinked stories. I was surprised that I liked it at all, and am stunned that I think it's become one of my favorite movies. I NEVER watch movies more than once, unless it's the Godfather, Clint spaghettis and High Plains Drifter, and used to watch Braveheart (a few too many times). But every time my wife has Love Actually playing, around the holidays, I just give up, sit down, and enjoy the heck out of it.

    My other comfort flicks:
