or the transphobic bit or any of it
Brilliant in parts. Obviously it's not comparable to the original series, but bits of the dialogue had me in stitches. People just need to accept that it's a different programme now. It's not shit, but bits of most of the Christmas specials have been. This was probably the best of the recent specials, though.
You just seem to hate life, tbh.
But they're made redundant by the utter shitness of the rest
but the scenes with Jim and Barbara are still great.
Actually thought Joe's lines were brilliant, though parts of the meal dates were a bit OTT, and i'm not really sure when, how or why he suddenly started talking.
what's the point in watching people watching tv
can't be arsed
it was ok or i was willing myself to like it at first, but then it just seemed to descend into utter shit
Only the ending.. I thought it was pretty poor other than that.
but then it got really shit when all the Joe stuff started. Then ended alright again.
only good bits are when theyre talking about food
as if they were worried everyone would be in a comas and not get it.
I turned off after 10 minutes.
It's embarrassing nowadays. An absolute shadow of what it once was. Used to be very understated and subtle. Now its jokes are sledgehammered and supported by unfitting incidental music. What on earth is that about?
It's been dumbed down for people who just want to hear 'My arse!' every five minutes. Hope it's never shown again.
it's just evolved.
guess the last scene was a bit moving. rest was dire.
