definately one of the best comedy programmes of recent years, its just constantly funny.
Who else loves it?

Darkplace is probably the best! That or Spaced
It's great there's only six episodes as well.
I watched it when Channel 4 first aired it about 4 and a half years ago.
They should have promoted it far better, I only knew one other person who had seen it up until a couple of years ago.
I remember the only other people who had seen it were two geekish guys in the year above me.
They were actually dead on. :D
I really hope there isn't a second series though. It would never be as good
or at least, the first real time. I tink there has been a sequel optioned for a while.
off the DVD. Although I had the bass up full when I did. :(
It's feckin great!

'If Wonton(?) finds out, my arse is grass - and he's got a lawnmower.' Classic.
"You're acting like an ape, A WILD APE"
I think Stephen Merchants cameo is possibly the funniest thing of the whole series though. sonofabitch

That and the pussy and that dried up 10 years ago pardon the expression"
I mean I could have one right now. I don't. But I could"
Interviewer: "Living in the Eastern Bloc"
Dean Learner: "No, buried in the Eastern Bloc. If she even got a burial"
If you continue to pay health service workers peanuts, would they literally turn into monkeys"
There are rebels, and there are innovators. I am a rebel. I don't do things the way they are supposed to be done. I take risks. I don't go by the book. And if that doesn't make me an innovator I don't know what does"
"If that's how you treat your friends, imagine how you treat your enemies. Worse I expect! "
crushing the polysterene cup as he says it
When the camera keeps focusing on objects around the office while people are talking. I was in stitches.
let me cut up your pork piie"
'Here, take this shortbread'.
I was walking down Charing Cross road and I spotted him walking towards me. As he went past I went "Hi Garth!" - he stopped and turned around and went "A ha! A fellow travller of the dark I see!"
Certainly better than when I met Richard Ayodare and I went "Hi Dean!" and he went "Err that's not actually my name"
