What i've seen so far has been BRILLIANT.
i think it's much better than the first series, and i love the first one.
they're showing the Albi on Beeb4 now :D
i think it has a slightly shaky start but soon reaches the level of the first season. Slightly less tunes, but the jokes are just as good. Theres a great one about dancing in a nightclub where theres too much sausage. Classic.
Oh yeah. Sugar Lumps, Hurt Feelings, Fashion is Danger and Too Many Dicks are all up there with the stuff from the last season.
I think I actually prefer the sitcommy parts of season 2 over season 1, but great songs are scarcer. The ones listed above, plus You Don't Have To Be A Prostitute and Carol Brown (and the sort-of song about Epileptic Dogs) are all as good as last season's though.
i don't think i would buy the FOTC album that was on Sub Pop because, although they're kind of shoehorned into the plot in places, i think they work much better in the context of the show. Whereas i'd happily listen to an album of songs off series 2. Somebody i know said that they could imagine Hurt Feelings being on Anticon (which might be pushing it, admittedly).
and i thought it was pretty boring :(
i hope it gets better, i loved the first series. perhaps the pressure from those guys from the pot noodle adverts is getting to them? :|
i think it hits it stride within a couple of episodes. The lookalikes episode is one of my favourite episodes of any sitcom in recent memory.
i shall give another couple of episodes a whirl :) although i'm getting series 3 of 30 rock tonight, so that'll be top dog for a while xD
Episode 2 is probably the best.
