Yup that Home Ec teacher is a bad bad actor and his little mate who is the supposed Kurt replacement character is very annoying so far.


i have to agree with you there- more wooden than my kitchen table. rolleyes.gif


is it just me or does the little one look a bit like joquin phoenix (sp)?
Lazlo Woodbine
i guess from a certain angle you could say he looked a little like Joaquin Phoenix. If you squint.

lol, I quite liked Susan when she was in it. And Jenny. There isn't much for the boys to look at now.
spacegurl
so i take it you don't like penny then..?

i liked susan too smile.gif jenny got on my nerves though. i think lindsey is very attractive
Lazlo Woodbine
I guess Penny's character puts me off her. That and her hair. Of the 2 i agree Lindsey is the more attractive.
Jenny could be annoying but i loved the bit with the picture frame and her arse. mmmm smile.gif
spacegurl
i miss andrew lincolns arse.....sob!

whats wrong with pennys hair?
Lazlo Woodbine
i guess i just don't have a thing for blonde.

It's on tonight so I must remember to watch it this week.
spacegurl
yeah, this series is holding up quite well for me actually so far smile.gif

and new little britain is on soon-yay!

I have always tried to avoid it as being a teacher it felt a bit too close to home. I don't need to see a staff room on telly when I'm at home even though its funnier than the one at work.

However, I saw some of the new one and it wasn't an entirely bad experience. I liked the RE teacher being too ashamed of his subject to admit to the others what he taught.
My school is a church school and I often feel that people make assumptions about my beliefs as a result. But then again being a teacher I spend most of my day with people making assumptions about what I think and believe. It always freaks the kids out when they find out I don't believe in uniform.

Anyway it amused me enough to prehaps give it another go if there's nothing else on telly at that time.

Not seen this series before this episode and it's just rubbish. It's like they think continuity works no matter how crap the actors in the continuity are. I don't think it's 'jumped the shark' (which a shit expression btw and not one I used with any pride) as I don't think it's the writing, it's the actors. They started with a brilliant cast and now it's the dregs without an ounce of knowledge of how to make the part sympathetic. Nah it's just boring. Shame. They should have stopped two series ago.

I though tonights episode was quite good and had me laughing a lot. Best one so far this series, even though there's only been 3 episodes shown. wink.gif

Was that really the best one? Christ. It seems a bit like saying that was the best song on a Robbie Williams album. Not really a recommendation.

Well It was better than the first episode and I can't comment on the 2nd one cause I didn't see it.
Lazlo Woodbine
I thought this one was the worst so far. I quite enjoyed the first 2 of this series but it's wearing a bit thin now.
fried_gold
I thought this one was better than the first one, but the old people one takes the lead in my mind. Theres too much swearing to cover up - agreed.
Mizzie
Mostly from Bob as well.

The swearing.

Not the funniness of the show.

Although they coul'd be linked, I've never given it much thought...
Stella MM
Still bad.

Shouldn't someone have burnt the home ec teacher on their bonfire last week? What with being made of wood and all, he'd have gone up a treat.

Nice.


Basically, Series 1 & 2 were great. Then Simon, Jenny and Rachel left by Series 3, and the leads were Brian and Kurt.
Well.
The ensemble were good for S1 & 2 , but speaking personally Brian and Kurt were not right for the leads for S3. The producers should have replaced the characters Simon, Jenny and Rachel (it WAS Rachel, wasn't it?).
The series now makes me think of depression within the teaching profession.
It doesn't make me laugh anymore.

I really liked Kurt and Brian as the leads - not as much as Simon and Susan (I think that's who you mean when you say Rachel) but they made a great comedy pair that got better as the series went on. They were slightly 2-dimensional, I grant you, but then Teachers was never very deep, even in the much vaunted first series.

Now, the entire show is being carried by Vicky Hall's (Lindsay) sterling acting but she's getting increasingly marginalised by the continuing 'fat but funny' characterisation.
madfish
apart from being one of the better actors in the show, she's also quite cute.
TheGimp
Aaaaarrgghhhh!!!


Yes, you're all right, it was Susan.

totally agree with you (for a change, it would seem tongue.gif ) about this - she totally dragged the whole thing along with he last night... the rest of them didnt stand a chance!!
Baz
I'm still liking this series so far. And not as much swearing last night too.
TheGimp
I can't believe it.

The word 'Wednesday', written on the wall of a toilet stall. In Bob's spunk.

ah yes... that made me squark (cant spell that) out the words "oh no, now that's not right!" at very high pitch and velocity... ohmy.gif
Stella MM
Squawk, you mean? tongue.gif

Urgh... I'm so glad I missed the first half an hour of it last night. I have no desire to see Bob's spunk. Why was he wanking so much though? Had he got a secret stash of viagra or something?
fear_of_pop
I emitted some funny noises at that point too.

Have fallen in like with Ben.
Lots.

i knew there was a 'w' supposed to be about it someplace! thank you monty!



as for bob, i think he was supposed to being having, or just having had, a vasectomy (due to the new thai bride), hence his tubes were all afluster...


still. not nice viewing one bit, not a jot, Not An IOTA.
JamesLydon
I haven't wanted to watch this latest series, after the shambles that was the first episode, but it isn't quite as bad as first impressions suggested.


I'll not be bothering to get, as I did for the first three, the DVD of this series, but I won't not watch it, if that makes sense!
J.R
I saw the guy who plays Bob in Canterbury Cathedral today. Whilst I was there on a trip. and I saw "kurt" in pub in London last week.



The question is are they following me or me following them.
fear_of_pop
I saw Kurt/Mr. Chowdry in London once too. He was extra, extra gorgeous in the flesh.
Stella MM
God, last night's episode was hilarious!

Get this, right: Bob's got a Thai bride! And she might be a lady-boy! And she's really gormless and can't speak a word of English! And she's sex mad!

Racist is probably too strong a word. But 'weak', 'cliched' and 'piss-poor' certainly aren't.

What the hell are they playing at?
The Phantom
Well, I've given this series a chance and I must say that I'm just not getting on with it. It just doesn't make enjoyable viewing, a shame really, particularly as people who I've encouraged to watch teachers in the past have then decided to get into it via this series are are just being instantly put off.
madfish
i missed last nights episdoe, does anyone know if its repeated during the week on either ch4 or e4?
Baz
I thought it was quite funny on Tuesday.


Daddy one!

biggrin.gif
Impossible
I've only started watching Teachers this series, there are a few laugh out loud moments for me smile.gif
Baz
I thought last nights one was the best of the series so far.

I must say though, I am quite enjoying this series and I'm not really missing Kurt and Brian.
J.R
I agree one of the best so far, tho I could not help but think how Kurt and Brian would have acted this week.


Still a pleasure to watch tho.
rebelstar
I missed the last couple, but saw most of last nights. It's still pretty crap, and this was brought home even more because I watched one of the episodes from the first series afterwards (episode 6 - the one where Susan has a bit of a breakdown). It's difficult to imagine these are both part of the same series - what's happened to the small dramas, the believable relationships and, especially, the dialogue? Bob incessantly saying 'fucking fuckety fuck fuck' does not a script make.
Baz
I missed it last night as I was out getting drunk.

Was the Christmas special one last night??

Was it any good??

Is it repeated??





I've just gone out and bought the 3rd series on dvd (finally) this lunch time.
Baz
It's been reported in the Sun Newspaper today that Teachers has been axed from Channel 4 after the last episode of the last series only pulled in 1.7 million viewers.


Oh well, all good things have to come to an end.
fear_of_pop
Bugger.

That'll teach them to kill Kurt....

It's on the BBC's web site now as well . . .

I wish they'd stopped after the third series, to be honest.

Or rather, all good things peter out slowly into an embarrassing and slightly offensive parody of what they used to be.

Oh, come on - what could be more entertaining and amusing than hearing Bob say "Fucking fucking fuckety fuck" for eight weeks?
