Re: Peter Finch [re: russellmael]  

Oh come on you lot!

Yes it was over hyped, yes the JTS video is far better than the song... but IS the guitarist the same actor who plays Finchy?

Re: That's Funny [re: poorsoul]  

Yes indeedy Poorsoul we are agreed,Is this HIStory in the making? lol.Yes i LOve "The League of Gentlemen",It was indeed very funny and highly original,Alas as you say!,The third season was poor in comparison,Have you ever seen the Live DVD at Drury Lane?,That is very funny,I also did'nt go much on that Christmas special they had out a couple of years back now,Thought it was tired and contrived.The characters!,All of them have such wonderful seedy backgrounds LOL,Its difficult to pick favs really?,But i must include the frustrated lesbian Pauline with her pens LOL and Tubbs( poor cow lol),Babs cabs has me in stiches lol,All that talk of him waiting for his operation,When he talks to his passengers about Thursday being The BIGGY OP LOL,Classic BBC comedy.
I did enjoy Bo-Selecta until that chronic Crimbo song,I actually thought he was taking the genuine rize out of his characters,Until i saw that dreadful Crimbo trash with Sir Bob Geldof resemebling Val Donican,Please take it off lol.
As for new sitcoms?,I cannot actually think of one?,Although i do enjoy Paul Merton and room 101,Other than that?,Im sorry to say that British television is chronic now...
MERRY CHRISTMAS

hahaha [re: poorsoul]  

I quite like Black Books, though Coupling is just awful comedy-by-numbers. Spaced is definitely worth a look for anyone who likes things like Black Books.

If you like League Of Gentlemen, look out for a comedy called Little Britain. It's rather similar but a lot funnier, featuring Matt Lucas who plays George Dawes on Shooting Stars. Which you've probably never heard of.

Mind you, not liking The Office means you're probably a lost cause...

Whatís the scores on the doors? [re: JonnyManic]  

Ha! Iíd forgotten about Spaced. Yes, brilliant.

poorsoul is an Aussie, jonny, and since, bizarrely, none of Vic and Bobís TV work ever made it to Aussie screens (apart from the none-too-bad remake of Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased)) he probably wonít know who George Dawes is. And I agree Ė not liking The Office is peculiar.

How do they live? Have you seen any of the later series of Shooting stars with Will Self replacing Mark Lamarr and Johnny Vegas as a second regular on Ulrika's team? They're even funnier than the old ones.

Oh, and russelmael: It's Chris Finch, not Peter.

No, I only saw the first two series (a mate in England taped them and sent them over). Brilliant stuff.

Upon first inspection, perhaps, but I think its glossy exterior belies the skillful writing that makes it worth watching.

Yes, I would agree with you there, though, like The League Of Gentlemen, I think it's run its course.

Re: Peter Finch new [re: russellmael]  

Some of us in the USA have BBC America on our cable systems. I have tried to watch The Office, but I too found it boring. It is apparently going to be remade as an American version, so I guess there must be something good about it.

I love Coupling.

It probably helps to be British, because most Brits have encountered people like that. It's unique in that the comedy is excrutiatingly cringe-inducing (like when they have the party for the Swindon lot and he keeps telling that racist joke). The only thing that ever came remotely close to that was Fawlty Towers, but even then, although we were also laughing at Basil, we weren't embarrassed for him.

Yeah, and allegedly Brad Pitt wants to play the David Brent character. I don't know, I can't see it myself.

I've actually watched them all (they were on while I was in university and had time on my hands...) and I thought they were at best OK but mainly awful. They're just too formulaic. The worst thing is that the performances are absolute crap. Except for Richard Coyle, he was funny.

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 same thing we do every night Pinky...
