    Phone Shop ..... jury still out. Some great sections, others less so.
    /marks interesting

    This has really grown on me, it's engagingly on the very edge of surreal. 3 episodes down and it still has my interest. 4 episode (tonight) is the key though...

    Yeah, it has some excellent moments and some very flat ones.

    At first I thought the casting was awful but it sort of makes sense now...

    I like it... I think. The mural of Little Gary makes me grin every time it comes into shot.

    me too :D I also like all the g-string photo photocopies stuck up on The Whaling Wall :D

    3rd episode made my mind up really, and 4th was all killer, no filler, believe ;) Seriously funny.

    Apparently they are playing out the last 2 in a double bill next week, I'm intrigued.

    Phone Shop turned out to be something quite special in the end. Proper hands-over-the-face funny, full of brilliant lines. Second series please, but no more, like Spaced. Hope they only do 2 for Misfits too.

    The Trip is pretty good!

    Just watched it. Made me think of an English 'Curb your enthusiasm', was weird seeing my old home again...

    Have put this on record now :)

    Liked The Trip a lot, but I wonder how far Coogan will push playing (a version of) himself, and how much I can bear to see of that.

    I remember watching the pilot of PhoneShop that was aired as part of the Comedy Workshop or whatever it was called on Channel 4.

    It was toe-curlingly bad.

    Anyone watching Mrs Brown's Boys? Just been watching it on t'i player. I remember seeing a trailer and thinking it looked like a My Family style sitcom, and it pretty much is that, but it's saved by a script which has a lot of jokes in it (mainly for the main character) and some decent slapstick. Bit of a guilty pleasure perhaps, but I'll be watching it again.

    Is ep 3 of the new Rab C worth catching? I enjoyed the first two of this new series (certainly better than the last as I recall), and I'll watch it if it's on but otherwise I'm not sure. Worth i-playerin?

    To answer my own question, yes it was. Tonights episode was pretty good too. Definitely the best series of this for a while.

    Strictly speaking, I shouldn't recommend 'Women!' in this thread, since it's French, but the second ep is on BBC2 tomorrow night. Ep 1 was rather up my street - lots of slapstick, lots of gurning, and lots of tits.

    Spunkle! Glittertown!

    On the verge of tears with parts of ep 2. Epic stupidity, wonderful warped language.

    Fresh meat anyone? Seemed like a slightly more surreal version of the inbetweeners crossed with hollyoaks to me. That guy is doomed to constantly play a version of his inbetweeners character for the rest of his career

    I like this news more than I enjoy the films of Jude Law.
