but when it's good it's really really funny
1. When I started listening I did it in the wrong order so missed a lot of the jokes. I realise this is a personal problem.
2. This however is a valid criticism I feel: there are only so many levels of "post modern" jokes you can do and so many layers of self-reflection before it just falls flat. Acknowledging the jokes are postmodern is a bit funny. Acknowledging the reliance on postmodern jokes is less funny and so on and so on, although there's a point where the downwards curve hits zero and there is no value left.
it just is.
But he seems to be making a deliberate attempt to get rid of most of the old jokes (killing off all the characters etc) and then only mentioning stuff like cummkins sparingly so that it retains its original impact.
I think you have to acknowledge its hit and miss approach because that is sort of the point in the show. Its like going to an improv and complaining that it wasn't slick enough.
bu i prefer Herrin with Collings
They compliment each other amazingly well and Collins has clearly learnt how to 'deal' with Herring's outbursts.
