Seinfeld -- in recent years I've watched it through about 3 times, plus I watch the odd episode on cable TV when I'm at my parents' house.
Simpsons -- the first 10 years or so; unfortunately there are twice as many shit episodes as there are good ones now, so I don't get to enjoy good episodes on TV at random, it's always shit ones.
Wayne's World -- I watched this every day for a brief period in the early 90s. Good timez.
Airplane! -- my favourite movie, I've seen it a zillion times, enough that I see all the jokes coming, but they're still good.

The comedy I watch for background noise probably exceeds anything else, and largely depends on TV networks not quality, but The Simpsons is #1. I also watched Friends season 1 incessantly in the mid-late 90s and still sometimes. Also South Park (although it has a lot of episodes so there's many I've only seen a couple of times), Futurama (original 4 series), Inbetweeners (as much because for a while it was inescapable on C4 as any other reason), iCarly, Bob's Burgers, and (shudder) the fucking one with the fucking geeks and her from Blossom (because it has about 3000 episodes, all immensely familiar).

Stuff I actually own on beautiful DVD (Father Ted, Clone High, Undeclared, etc) probably gets watched much less.

Filmwise, Heathers, About A Boy, and It's A Wonderful Life (which is largely comic at least when I watch it).

The Inbetweeners, series 1-2 how could I have forgotten that? Also Mike Basset England Manager, what a film.

Same. And for same reason.

Also UK Office likewise. Odd how I can divorce today's Gervais from the performance entirely and enjoy it almost as much as I did the first time round.

Film : Withnail and I

Andy Parsons, from a bush, outside his house.

Oh, Waitrose for your shopping again Andy? I thought you were a socialist, Andy?

Eating a Twix today is it Andy, before your morning jog? I thought sensible people boycotted Mars Inc for animal cruelty, do you like cruelty to animals, Andy?

On the mobile to your agent again, Andy? They don't want you on Mock The Week anymore? They want one of them women ones on instead now? Thought you were a feminist, Andy?

Typing a text are you Andy? Is it to Henry Naylor, perchance? Is another series of Parsons and Naylor's Pull-Out Section for Radio 2 in the pipeline? Is that what you want is it, TV too good for you, Andy?

Now, Andy did you hear about this one?
Tell me, are you locked in the punch?
Andy are you goofing on Brexit? Hey, baby?
Are we losing touch?

I thought you loved me, Andy.
I thought you cared.
But you don't.

You're just an annoying Griff Rhys-Jones voiced, mole-faced, bald milquetoast apolitical comedy mustachioed cunt.

Ah, Morrison's today was it? Andy, I still love you.

For me, Peep Show is Nietzsche's eternally recurrent universe, continually cycling through in my life's background. Occasionally foreground.

Withnail & I, definitely have seen 20-30 times now. It's a good solo comfort film but also great for cackling along with mates gleefully anticipating everything and getting sloshed.

Peep Show also, but really only series 1 to 4, it loses the spark so badly after that for me I actively avoid watching later episodes.

The Young Ones but only series 2 because I lost the first disc of my dad's DVD.

Office UK

Brasseye and the Day Today, the latter especially. In 2011 I made a habit of binging it when coming back hammered from a night out in the early hours. Would just fall asleep with it playing on the laptop in front of me. Then wake up to the ambient menu music with a raging thirst and a samosa in my hand. It will be written on the inside of my brain forever.

Derek and Clive Get the Horn many times, mainly through tons of YouTube clips before i owned a copy.

Was down in the dumps and watched Black Books loads in 2008-9 so it's probably up there but can't remember it now.

Stewart Lee's Comedy Vehicle

Thick of It / Armando Iannucci Shows. So much to glean and ponder each time, they just don't get old, especially TTOI, the hit rate is just insane and it keeps you thinking and concentrating and on your toes.

Films: kind hearts and coronets is a film I can never tire of. It's just faultless.
Withnail & I - not just studenty drunken viewings, although I did go there.
As a child in the early 90s carry on films used to be on TV constantly. I became quite fond of them, and I must be the last generation to discover my cock to Barbara Windsor, a year or two before we got satellite / MTV and I never looked back. The usual popular ones I have sat through dozens of times. Enough to notice minor continuity errors in clothing etc.

TV: Simpsons was always on as a teen. I have also watched the early peep shows several times through.

Chris Morris stuff is always worth watching repeatedly.

Big Night Out, and Bottom, I think.
The perfect storm of infinitely rewatchable "content", being at that age where I was finding my comedy taste, and compulsive repetition feeling safe and comfy.

Man, Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmonson were on another level, I so took them for granted, looking back. So effortless. Growing up with the dangerous brothers and the young ones, you just took it for granted that that's how funny funny people were.
That "Accident" (Ritchie's birthday) episode of bottom is sublime. I thought about it just today, funnily enough, while I was stripping some wallpaper.

"Ooh, I wonder what it is! I wonder what it is! ... the remote control for the television :("
"Yeah! What do ya wanna watch, birthday boy?!"
I imagine Eddie always got to choose what they watched so it was a pretty decent present, all told.
Aw man, I'm gonna have to download them and watch them again.

I can remember watching the first episode "smells" as it went out, my fat narcissistic bullycunt fatha, knowing I was a fan, belching "urgh, this is gonna flop, they're well past their best", trying to stifle his chuckles and laughing his guts up towards the end :D

The first live show was great (best not to mention the others). I think that must have been the most watched VHS amongst our peer group. Those 8th generation fuzzy Swedish porn tapes didn't get a look in.

There can be no higher praise.
"Better than Christ" seems like an understatement when you're looming larger than porn to a 14 year old boy.

Back in the day it was Seinfeld, no question, but about 10 years ago I decided I was watching it too often so I try to only watch it occasionally these days.

Despite being in my thirties I'm still very much a child so I often put something on my phone to fall asleep to. My main go to for that is Arrested Development (the first three seasons at least) which I have probably watched through 50 or 60 times. It's Always Sunny, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, I'm Alan Partridge and Peep Show are others that I seem to have on a perpetual loop and are ones that I don't mind falling asleep while watching - the US version of The Office was good for that too when it was on Netflix.

Father ted seems to have been continually repeated since it was first on and i will happily watch it when there's nothing else on. Which is very often.

A flatmate of mine watched Whoops Apocalypse incessantly and although i thought it was mediocre comic strip at first i came to regard it as a top level classic. Not seen it since 1997 mind

The whole episode of Bottom: Gas, and that one specific Police Squad locksmith joke.

Arrested Development, still finding the odd joke here and there I forgot about/missed the first few times round.
