Is this great? It seems like it might be.
Where have you really been?
The 'rebranding' sketches (taking the piss out the Royal Mail --> Consignia renaming) of are some of the best things I've seen on TV. It's about time they released the DVDs for the second and third series or at least repeat them but since Harry Thompson died it seems like the BBC is pretending it no longer exists.
never seen em repeated. Pretty sure they're all on youtube as well.
and I have the series 1 dvd.
like the 2 guys bumming on the roof of some flats.
Reminds me of the days when BBC3 had a 30minute slot that wasn't full of shit.
Is possibly my favourites series of anything. Incredible
really not worth your time
Funnily enough my friend just posted this clip of it on Facebook yesterday, first time I'd seen it in ages:
Personal highlights are the Hollywood sketches, like the Crusades and the Diary of Ann Frank.
brilliant themes running throughout e.g. cult of celebrity, reality tv, blair's britain, tabloid hysteria - all ties in with some hilarious sketches and a cool soundtrack.
now it shows Coming of Age
Don't know how they got the BBC to show it. The old bloke trying to groom young girls in a chat room, the police press conference with the stepdad who is obviously the murderer, the divorced dad killing himself every week. Must have been so many complaints
when has that stopped people complaining?
Same goes to all those that have ^this'd that
Dark, irreverent and rapier-sharp funny. One of my favourite sketch shows of all time. Almost nothing on British TV sent up how lame and superficial this country became after too many years of New Labour.
£3.50 on play.
Cant really go wrong with that.
