i wasn't allowed to watch it cos billy elliott was on.
I can't even be arsed going into it.
was an old guy saying "computer in a bag" a lot.
I didn't see it, and I'm just curious to hear all the shit aspects of it.
I'm guessing this show should have ended when they killed off Nana.
Seems like the writers couldn't be arsed writing any decent, believable dialogue, so to fill time just told the actors to speak realllly slowlllyyy likeee a simplettonn.
Characters reduced to barely recognisable, two-dimensional idiots. Dave and Denise are borderline retarded. Then there's the bizarre storylines, everyone rowing over a 'golden eggcup' that Dave bought for Jim and Barbara. Stupid jokes that come across as the cast just entertaining themselves and no-one else. It's a completely different show to what it used to be. No subtlety anymore at all.
That's really badly written I apologise but there you go.
just got stuck on tv tropes for half an hour
That's exactly it. That's what I came in here to write. No subtletly.
Jokes like: "I'd love to go abroad." "Me too - do you know where I'd like to go? Yves Saint Lauren."
spot on sir
I have literally no idea how she get's her shows commissioned.
As she is being flown over London in an armchair by the Ghost of Christmas Future, she looks down and says "Ooooh look, you can see where the congestion charge starts". Studio audience laughs.
That was fucking awful
does she actually repeat that line so many times in the song or did they edit it
which isnt saying much, granted
They were celebrating Jim and Barbara's '50th Wedding Anniversary'...
WTF? Jim and Barbara aren't in their 70's! I'm sure Caroline Aherne and Craig Cash write it when they're pissed.
but the last two specials have been on a par with ITV's Benidorm. Dave and Denise are borderline retarded these days and the poof jokes were dodgy to say the least. Jim gets less and less likeable with every episode. The Queen of Sheba was great, they should have left it there.
The rest was a bit rubbish. I'm not a huge fan of Catherine Tate but I enjoyed...and in other news I watched Gavin and Stacey and enjoyed the old lady strumming and singing The Smiths in the bbq. I've gorged on tv the past few days after not having one for a year. It's been ace.
I liked the Jodrell Bank gag. It all went tits up after that though, imo. The close-up of Jim Royle's skidmarks was a particular low point.
I thought it was something to do with jacket potatoes and his spuds being on show.
