Nuh-uh! They aired on New Years Day at 8.30 pm on UK-TV (the Australian Foxtel channel). I live in Perth, and that's when I saw them.  laff Let's just say Brent's gone into another field of entertainment...

Was it the one with the "spider-baby"? anyway i really enjoyed Darkplace and the way it spoofed all the old 80s TV shows - the handshake was by far the funniest part.

As you said Coronation Street does suck. I would hardly put it in a thread about British Comedy.
The only amusing thing about that is how amazingly shite it is. Any mention of Red Dwarf?

Yes! I'm amused by the smallest things - I found Father Jack's expression on his face hilarious when he was on that merry-go-round thing with Dougal.

Director's Commentary is on again on ITV tonight at 11.

 Some guy at college said to me it was by the guy who played Tim's favourite computer geek, Simon, in The Office. It's blatantly not.  roll eyes

British Comedy seems to have peaked in the seventies and eighties. I've never really found anything that is up there with Flying Circus, Red Dwarf, or Blackadder recently.

Mrs Doyle: Now, what do you say to a cup father?
Father Jack: FECK OFF CUP!

and

Mrs Doyle/Father Ted???: I'm sure Father Jack won't mind giving something up for our lord....
Father Jack: ARLUD? WHOS ARLUD?

Father Ted is just classic, I particularly love the episodes Speed 3, Escape From Victory and Kicking Bishop Brennan Up The Arse.

Actually, there's too many to name.  If I had to pick a favourite, I'd pick Speed 3.

Last nights Directors Commentary was again hilarious, with De Lane's commentaries on Flambards, and The Bounder.  Particularly loved the tangents into Bruce Forsythe Gameshow quotes, also the tributes to "Denny" the midget cameraman ("shooting through a chair, classic Denny".)

Also been watching the DVD's of S1 and S2 of The Office, and have gauge opinion on PEELers favourite Office Moment, for me it has to be this:

From Ep4 of S1, the Management Course:

Instructor: Gareth, quick trust exercise, what's your ultimate fantasy?
Gareth: Two lesbians.  Sisters, probably.  Me just watching.
Instructor: Tim?
Tim: I never thought I'd say this, but can we hear more from Gareth please?

The Bishop up the Arse one is really funny.

I watching Garth Marenghi's Darkplace for the first time and I really like it a lot.

Well, that's probably because the only access I have to British TV is PBS on Saturday nights, and they booted all the good shows for filler like 'Kiss me Kate' and 'As Time Goes By'.

Darkplace rocks man, the bike scene last night was damn funny, didnt stop laughing for quite awhile!
The Father ted episode when he's waving through the window looking just like Hitler also ranks with some the of the funniest shit I've seen!

I only watched the first episode of that directors commentary, it seemed shit so haven't watched since, has it improved enough to warrent another watch?

I'm still loving Father Ted, I can never get bored of watching it. My favourite quote comes from the Christmas episode:

(Father Dougal is shaking Ted to wake him)
Father Dougal: Ted, Ted! Wake up, wake up!
Father Ted: What Dougal, what is it?!
Father Dougal: Would you like a peanut?

When I watched that a few weeks ago, I was laughing so much!

Darkplace is funny and clever. I like it a lot.

Last nightís farther Tedís episode was so funny. Itís the episode where they dressed up as Elvis. The drunken guy throw himself through the window makes me laugh the most.

Ah, the episode of Darkplace last night was suberb, the series has all the makings of a classic - the way it takes itself so seriously is hilarious, and i love the way Dean Learner is portrayed as a complete prat.

Did anyone watch Ross Noble's Unrealtime? That man is the best thing to happen to British comedy in years, and I've been liking him since before it was cool...

Seriously, though, he's the best comedian I've seen in years and I'd recommend him to any comedy fan.

I didnít know who Jon Culshaw is until I saw him on TV with his on show on ITV. He was from Dead Ringers. He is very good at personating Trevor Macdonald, President Bush, Ozzy Osborne and David Dickinson.

I was so delighted to see him personate Robbie Williams. He looks and sound like him. I hope that he can personate Robbie more.

Jon Culshaw's show on ITV was funny, but I don't think the writing or production qualities are as good as they are/were on Dead Ringers.

I liked Jon Culshaw's show, although I prefer 'Dead Ringers'. I thought that his impressions were great, especially Trevor McDonald, although the only one I didn't really like was the Steve Irwin one.

Culshaw's best impersonation is Tom Baker, by far.
