It was good, wasn't it? Some of it missed the mark but sketches like that made me laugh a great deal.
Theo: burn the thread
as a teenager i enjoyed this immensely
and were massively racist to the English waiters and ordered like 300 bread rolls :D
give me the blandest thing on the menu!
And the laugh track was too high up in the mix which made me cringe. But the ideas there were solid, and necessary.
Which featured a lot of the same cast.

A tsunami of indie points for you, sir
but also very funny. Anyone with a little knowledge of 1st/2nd generation Indian/Pakistani families in the UK couldn't help but find the satire amusing. The cast were obviously a talented bunch given where they've got to now.
Always used to like the guy out on a date who would say something inappropriate and end the sketch with 'Cheque please!'
It's insanely well observed at times - sure it goes wide of the mark, but I think it's a little ludicrous for anyone to say it just wasn't funny at all.
Cheque please guy was awesome :D
and then they get burgled, and it pulls away to the dad saying "THEY MUST'VE GOT IN THROUGH THE COW FLAP"
Every single person on it turned out to be a talentless, clueless cockbag though.
but with an odd level of success
London in 1976. The programme was pretty on the ball for people like me and my parents. But, yes, like all sketch shows it was hit and miss.
