Re: Ho Ho Ho Selecta new [re: JonnyManic]  

In reply to:

They're just too formulaic. The worst thing is that the performances are absolute crap. Except for Richard Coyle, he was funny.



I'm assuming he played Geoff, since the other two males are fairly straight characters. Of course I disagree with you but, from what I've heard about the American version, you'd hate it even more. They used the same scripts, just with American actors - who really couldn't act.

In reply to:

I think they're going to do one more series. I think that's a good idea: Tim and Daisy really ought to get together. So should Mike and Brian.



The last one seemed like they were running out of ideas and divulging too much in the dramatic side of things. Of course it's possible that a new one would offer an improvement, though.

Re: That's Funny new [re: diamondogz74]  

In reply to:

Have you ever seen the Live DVD at Drury Lane?



No, but it sounds worth checking out. Do you know anything about the next project they're supposed to be working on?

In reply to:

I also didn't go much on that Christmas special they had out a couple of years back now, thought it was tired and contrived.



At the time, I put it down to the fact that I hadn't seen the series for so long that I'd forgotten who the characters were (I didn't understand what Papa Lazaroo was about, for instance). You're probably right, though.

Yes, it's been given a few late-night runs here, though I've never bothered to stay up and watch it.

The Office Christmas Specials new [re: 96dbFreak]  

Look out for these, they're the last ever episodes of the show. The same brilliant observation of painful embarrasment and tragic-comedy but with added resolution! What happens to Finchy is particularly satisfying!

The same thing we do every night Pinky...

Yeah, we're getting them on NY's day - three days after you. Can't wait!

Yeah, quite brilliant. The fact that they knew these were going to be the last episodes ever meant they could really go for it.

The Tim/Dawn resolution was predictable but none the less sweeter for it.

I hope I never see the American remake.

Slan libh,

Indeed. I almost shed a tear when her and Lee left the party as Tim watched wistfully, especially when she didn't look back as every viewer must have been expecting her to. But when she walked back in again...I'm not ashamed to say I lost it. In fact I'm tearing-up now just thinking about it. Aaaaaaahhhhhhhhh.
