I am afraid I don't know what "Dad's Army" is (I saw there was another post related to it), but your quote made me think of a scene from Lethal Weapon (I forget which number), where Riggs and Murtaugh were walking up to a house to talk to a witness and the house exploded. Afterwards, Murtaugh is talking to a bunch of kids in front of the house and asks one of them what his name is, and one of the other kids say "Don't tell him your name, Alfred".
I Googled it to see what all the fuss is about. I was born in 1968, so that would explain how I missed it I found this Wikipedia page Britain's Best Sitcom[^]. There are a lot of shows I don't know, but I liked "Blackadder" and "Yes Minister", loved "Fawlty Towers", can't stand "Keeping up appearances", but I really thought 'Allo 'Allo![^] would be higher on the list. I think it is one of the funniest TV series ever.
I used to love 'Allo 'Allo, but when I try to watch it now I can't get past one or two minutes. I personally wouldn't mention Keeping up appearances in the same sentence as Blackadder, Yes Minister and Fawlty Towers. The latter three are far superior in my opinion. I still enjoy Rising Damp.
I do seem to remember that 'Allo, 'Allo! at some point took a turn and became...ridiculous? Not sure that is the right word considering the basic "plot" of the show, but I am thinking that was towards the end. I hope you read that I cannot stand "Keeping up appearances"
I grew up in Denmark, so I am afraid the 5 shows I mentioned are the only ones I am familiar with in the top 20 of that vote.
