Excellent start. Gary is clearly going to be an AMAZING character.
Also, Julia Louis-Dreyfus = still way hot
(Yeah I could google, but I'm already here)
Did anyone watch the new Alan Partridge? Any good?
I'm sure the first one will be on again in a day or two.
it's a pretty good tv show.
Better than the third series of The Thick Of It based on that first episode as well, always thought it lacked without Langham sadly but this re-imagining gives it a bit of a boost. Iannucci really is a genius isn't he.
the thick of it's my favourite ever and i like JLD but i'm not really laughing that much here, feels like it's trying too hard to be clever or something
might try again
"...and you, you gay Irish fireman...you're okay...but YOU, you i do NOT like...".
The Thick Of It with style, content and swearing. Overall, a great start. Finally, a grown up comedy show on television. It's been a while.
Though the first was obviously setting scene and character. This has a lot of potential. I can honestly watch this for Dreyfus alone. Still so hot.
but the second was fantastic. And yes, Dreyfus is so hot!
Love how all of the major characters are in the same vein as their Thick of It counterparts, particularly Mike (Glen), and even Dan (Ollie).
maybe you just don't get it.
but seeing her power dressing and strutting around..... PHWOAR!!!
Did I miss the memo? She has a mandible like a banister...
Best so far. There's a great pace to it, much like the Thick of It.
Interesting how stories are overlapping from episode to episode far more than The Thick Of It. I suppose it means you can go into further detail, and not need to start again every episode.
Also I know it wasn't the cleverest part of the show, but when she was shaking hands at the end :D
Some absolutely incredible one-liners. Iannucci at his very best.
