Max & Paddy
Onto the subject. I watched Peter Kay's new show this evening and I'm not sure yet. Some funny bits but not consistent enough. I'll give it another go next week.
= no... it's just too hack, although you do accidentally find yourself chuckling at it.

The Mighty Boosh
Wednesdays 7pm BBC2.
(except not this wed, cos of the fecking snooker).
= yes, yes and thriky yes! It's ubersurreal, which can put people off, and it genuinely is one of those shows that you have to 'get' (which terminology I dislike, but it is apt here).

The Smoking Room
The Smoking Room's pretty good.
BBC2. Not sure which night though.
= Yes! An undiscovered gem whilst it was on BBC
Three, which is slowly being de-undiscovered on terrestrial. Slow burning, lacking in originality in places, but very definitely rewards repeated attention.

everything is a matter of personal taste. you`re not a moron overtilt, stick to your views!
id reccomend teachers, monkey dust and peep show.
= oh dear... Not a patch on the earlier three series, but still watchable, if only because of Lindsey and her commanding screen presence. The RE teacher is mildly cute too...Monkey Dust
= probably. Concept gets a bit tired after a while, but it is generally good for a laugh.Peep Show
= YES. Up with Green Wing
for me as the outstanding comedic invention of the past 12-18 months. Totally worth the cost of the S1 DVD and also worth not going out on a Friday night so you can stay in to watch it...

teachers is quite funny too even if none of the original cast are still in it
Except for Bob, Claire, the office girls, etc...
Honorable mention here must also go to Green Wing
, which finished its run a couple of weeks back; you can download it at UKNova at the moment, if you do the whole bit torrent thang.
