I only just discovered this show and I love it! It's hilarious the only bad point is Russell. Can't stand him. Any others fans on here?

Used to watch this when it first started. Then they started to give Spade more screen time so gave up with it. Can't stand the man.

I like it, but Russell doesn't particularly annoy me, I just don't like him.

This is one of my fave sitcoms. I think Bianca Kajlich and Megyn Price are two sexy ladies.

I'm not keen on Russel either but love the interaction between him and Timmy. The soup episode last night was so funny.

Adam is my fave character.

I agree with the Russell comments. He's a poor mans Barney Stinson in my opinion.

Love Jeff and Timmy though. My two favourite characters by a large margin.

Its one of those US comedys that dont really change season on season but something about it makes you watch it.

Rules of Engagement is great but it has changed a lot over the seasons - I don't think I would have stuck with it if I'd watched it from the start.

I'm surprised about all the dislike for Russell, he's my favourite character. Bringing in Timmy has helped a lot and made them just as much of a couple as the other two. I'm glad they didn't carry on with Liz and Russell, the stuff she says regularly crosses the line between disgustingly funny to just plain grim.

Couldn't stop laughing at Adam's 'Missed Connections' ad for the bucket drummers.

I have the biggest crush on Megyn Price

Jeff and Adam are hilarious, everytime I hear Jeff speak though all I can see is Joe from Family Guy!

I love this show (as outlined under "services" )

I don't hate Russell, but I prefer Timmy. I'm always rooting for Timmy. Jeff and Russell making fun of Adam is always good though.

Was in hysterics during that, plus his reaction to the police.

I'd agree, Russell works a lot better now they've brought in Timmy to play off, but I'm afraid I have a very strange, weird and inexplicable crush on David Spade, I am not proud

It's one of those shows if it's on I'll watch it but I'd never go out of my way to watch it.

I like the differing couples in it, but again the Russell character kinda grates a little. Timmy was definitely a welcome addition to making Russell more bearable!!

I love the show. It has to be the longest engagement ever.

Echoing what others have said, Russell works well with Timmy and when everyone is ripping the piss out of him. I'm genuinely shocked Audrey hasn't left Jeff, he treats he absolutely terribly.

I'd like them to focus a bit more on Jen - she's always shunned to the side.

Jeff is probably one of my favorite sitcom characters. I can agree with the hate on Russell, but for the first few seasons his character is probably what saved the series from getting cancelled.

I like Jeff's blunt, straight-to-the point attitude.

What point is it at E4? I only started watching it a couple of days ago and don't know if it's series one or the most recent one.

Yeah, it's kind of jumbled up.

Thursday's episodes are new. All other episodes are old, but in order.

Brand new episodes are on Thursday nights, last week we had episodes 10 and 11 of series 6.

Series 6 has 15 episodes in total, which brings us up to date with the US. However E4 hasn't scheduled the final 2 episodes of series 6 yet as new episodes of Facejacker and Midnight Beast have taken its place.

I really enjoy Rules of Engagement, find it very funny and like all the characters. I didn't like Russell at first but now I like him as much as the others. I'm really pleased it's been recommissioned, I just hope E4 continue to show it. Best sitcom on at the moment.

Considering my crush on Russell/David Spade I'd have to say no
