Another particular favourite of mine was where Herr Flick was going to use Helga to seduce Rene to extract information. The following scene went sort of like this.

*Herr Flick is in his lair, practising his violin. Von Smallhousen brings in Helga, who wearing a fur trimmed full length leather coat.
Herr Flick: Ah, Von Smallhousen, is Helga wearing the special clothes?
Von Smallhousen: I can't tell you what she's wearing, but I can tell you what effect it had on me...."Wheeeeeeeheeeeheeeeeaaaao!"
Her Flick: Good, now get out.
*Von Smallhousen leaves*
Her Flick: Right then Helga, just stand here and go through the routine you'll use with Rene while I practice my Violin.
*Her Flick starts playing his violin...Helga slowly lowers the top of her coat revealing that she's not wearing anything underneath...Flick's playing becomes erratic...*
Herr Flick: Three... Swastikas!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOAAAAAAAHAAAAA!!!!!!!

I think Dead Ringers do a better Ozzy, but it was all very good. What he did particularily well was Basil Fawlty's nervous laugh.  big grin

Having watched "The Best Of HIGNFY" last night, just reminded me what a brillant show it is, the video (which I recommend highly) has all of the bit from all of the best shows:

Every Episode with Boris Johnson (as team-member)
The "Tub Of Lard" Episode
The Hamiltons
Ian does Jimmy Somerville
Angus the week after after the prostitute
(and my personal all-time favourite) Paula Yates

Soooo good.

Is it me or is the new season of 2DTV a lot less funnier than the last? some of the sketches are that weak that I'm sat there thinking, "When will this end?"

  The office series two was, in my opinion, sublime.  I have series one on DVD, and I'm going to get series two when it comes out as well.

It's not on in Blighty any more either. I only saw a couple of episodes, it looked quite good although the housekeeper woman was a bit annoying.

Comic Relief is ok i suppose, but it's much better then Children in Need, mainly because it's bi-annual. But how can anyone resist the red-noses? I can't remember a year without them!

BBC 3 launched a couple of days ago, although it's BBC Choice it does have a few new comidies, i haven't seen them yet though.

To be honest they're all good, except possibly "Demolition"  (the first one), as they were just rolling out the characters, and Neils was slightly different.

It's only a small quibble though, as the rest of it is excellent.

"Bambi" (the Univsersity Challenge episode) is a close second.  Here's a quote from "Bambi":

Neil: I was just remembering that bit, when you lost lost in the snow.

Vyvyan: Yeah, I loved the bit when you shoved a drill in the Virgin Otter's face.

Neil: That wasn't in "Bambi", Vyvyan.

Vyvyan: It was in the sequel, Neil, "Bambi Goes Crazy-Ape-Bonkers With His Drill And Set"

Neil - Is that true Bambi, did you do a Disney nasty?  laff

I love The Young Ones. I've got almost every episode on video. But I gotta say, the university challenge one is one of my favourites. Also the one where they're bored  smile

BBC3 launched a new animated sketch show called 'Monkey Dust' on Sunday - very dark, very bleak, very funny.

"Nasty", "Bambi" and "Sick" are my favourites.

Now, it's about time we gave credit to the underrated Young One's follow-up: "Filthy, Rich and Catflap".

I have the only season on video, and I love it.

I saw that, it was definately freaky, i mean the guy committing suicide over his son and the paedophile (that's wrong isn't it).

I saw Burn It last night, that was quite good. (Oh, that's a drama, wrong thread!).

bit disappointed with BBC Three's comedy output so far.  Monkey Dust is only going to attract small audiences due to the timeslot and as for Swiss Toni ...
this is the reason sketches should remain sketches.

Well Comic Relief is on Tonight and I am definitely going to watch it. For the Americans that dosen't know what Comic Relief is about, I will tell you.

Comic Relief is a charity tv event that all the British and some times American TV comedians get together to raise money for the people in Africa who has no food, and the medicines they need to stay alive. Also They raise the money for around the world for the pepole in need.

Comic Relief has been doing this event since the early 80's that I can remember I also get as much money I can to take to the bank and say that this is for Comic Relief

Tonight's one look like it's going to be good. I saw the add to it with my dad, Eastender spoof looks kind of good.
 

Also there a spoof of the Michael Jackson interview with Lenny Herny as MJ and Rowan Atkison is that interviewer (Forgot his name).
