starting on November
They've done a deal with Fosters like Alan Partridge did. It'll be weird/possibly very bad.
Also: I definitely did not press submit. Do not know what happened...
the show basically only have about six jokes repeated ad nauseum
Watched some of the DVDs recently with mates and its surprising the amount of variety across the seasons, especially compared with more modern shows *cough*littlebritain*cough* which used Fast Show as their template.
However I do think the new series will be shite.
is Paul Whitehouse, who is doing insurance ads. This smacks of a desperate attempt to wring some last money out of a long dead cash cow.
don't think he's doing badly
bar a couple of really funny sketches, most of it is average at best.
Hilarious when I was 15 though.
the worst of british comedy
green green grass
two pints of lager
babes in the wood
Vicar of Dibley
Reginald Perrin (clunes version)
Oh Doctor Beeching
You rang my lord
On the up
As time goes by
Terry and JUne
Birds of a Feather
We have a fine tradition of shite sitcoms.
Fast show, although it's showing it's age, would probably still be in the top 50.
but it's true the last time i watched it I was about 11
but managed to miss Gimme Gimme Gimme.
Is that the porn version?
Still starring Dawn F I hope?
Sorry, but I'm a fan of the VICAR
difficult to see this being much cop though. They were flagging badly by season 3
but yeah by the end when they had stuff like Johnny Depp in the suit you sir sketch it was pretty painful
But it was more hit than miss when it was on first. The Ted and Ralph sketches were pretty much one of the best things that's ever been on TV, and Chanel 9 was brilliant, as was Dave Angel: Eco Warrior and Monkfish. Actually I loved it!
And of course this: http://bit.ly/jVWZfv
where the guy walks up a staircase which starts playing Cars by Gary Numan is, for some reason, one of the funniest things I've ever seen.
I can't BELIIIIIEVE iiiit!
Somebody STOP me SMOKiiiiiiNG!
I like Tommy Cockles!
It sounds hilarious, some superb anecdotes. the man was a drug fuelled thief when younger, and then a alcoholic drug abuser during his time on the fast show
PUT ON YOUR KNICKERS I WOULD LIKE A TEA IN A CUP
which was actually at times the best thing he's ever done and mostly very good.
I enjoyed the Vic & Bob sketches
Don't see this working though, The Fast Show got realllll old real fast
i used to love The Fast Show but i'm not sure it's aged well.
