The first episode of the new series of Little Britain - wasn't as funny as the first series, but I enjoyed it nevertheless. They got rid of the Scottish mad man (who I loved, just for the "Yeeeeeeeeeees!" catchphrase)...but here's some of the new characters.


Bubbles - lives at the health spa and gets away with not paying for it.


Harvey - Harvey is a well-heeled young man with the classic car, the cravat, the family home in the country, and he's introducing his new fiancée to his posh parents.


Judy and Maggie - the W.I ladies. It did actually remind me of some of the middle-class ladies in my village  laff

Emily Howard has a new "lady" friend this time around, called Florence. I found them hilarious  laff The Vicky Pollard sketch was also funny, because it's just so true!  big grin

Why do British people find men in drag so funny?

Thanks for that! Little Britain is the only thing worth getting BBC 3 for.
I preferred the lenny hendry version of Vicky Pollard though, a rip-off, but a good one.

The best british comedy ever has to be trigger happy tv, buy the dvd's and laugh constantly for three hours! The american version was pretty good too.

Ok, british comedies I don't like...
Any piece of crud on ITV that calls itself a comedy, like 'barbara' or 'hardware', they are as boring as their names, also 'bognor or bust' is nowhere near as good as 'have I got news for you'.

Bubble might be my new fave character. Oh my god that scene makes me cringed but it was so funny. I’m surprise that they showed it at around 9pm?

Turns out that the new episode of Little Britain got record ratings for a show on a digital channel - I think it was 1.6 million viewers  smile

Clicky

If no-one's heard of this, it's a spot-on parody of the 70's/80's Science For Schools programmes, and written by/starring Peter (Duane Benzie) Serafinowicz, and Robert Popper.

Yeah watched the DVD at you house and I thought the program was really funny. Yeah I am going to watch the second series when it comes out.

I saw quite a few of them on BBC3 over the summer, but I've missed the ones on BBC2 on mondays at the moment.  Does anyone know if it's the same series being shown?

What a way for them to end Green Wing. I thought that was the best episode out oh the lot. Some scenes were funny and shocking.

it appears to be a compilation of all the series from bbc3.


and the women's institute skits from little britain are about institutional racism and bigotry, NOT about "distasteful" people as one poster mentioned. the skit is highlighting bigotry in those types of organisations.

I watched the first episode on E4 (because I'd missed it the first time around).  Looking forward to the DVD, rumour has it, that because a lot of the 'skits' were improvised, there's a shitload of unbroadcast material they're putting on there.

I enjoyed the ending (a literal cliffhanger), and look forward to another series.  For me, it's been a grower, but I ended up loving it.

Juliet: Bah, happens all the time around these parts... I've gotten used to it.

I saw something that was probably improvised, when that slightly insane counsellor woman (dunno her name) chased after the ambulance, she grabbed the drivers ass after he closed the door.  laff

You can't choose her!  She hasn't got a fanny!

One of the more quotable lines from the episodes.

Along with:

She's my schmoo!

The bits with Guy in Sue Whites office are obviously improvised, when he's impersonating her.  (It's a piece of piss, this job.)

Also, i'd say that Guy delivered the best line in the whole series, to Sue White:

You know what I like about you?  Fuck all.

I saw that Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere today and I thought it was really good. I didn’t know that they were the characters from Phoenix Nights because I only saw one episode of Phoenix Nights. That Patrick McGuinness is really good looking.  love

Max & Paddy are the doorman from the Phoenix Club.  In the final episode of Phoenix Nights, they head off in a camper van, hence the spin-off series.

I think it's missing Dave Spikey's writing.  Personally.  But it was not bad.

Do that, nothing beats the episode with the psychic.

Max & Paddy has potential, but Kay needs to make up with Spikey and do another Phoenix Nights.

A mate let me borrow his copy of Big Train, series 1 & 2.

I was always a fan of the International Stare-Out Championships, but there's loads of fantastic sketches.  Amelia Bullmore and Julia Davis are criminally underused in Series One, perhaps the main reason they didn't return for S2 (The Florence Nightingale sketch on Ep6 of S1 is brilliant - Amelia Bullmore steals the series with that one.)

Pegg, Heap and Eldon are great too.  I particularly love Simon Pegg's Braveheart (I may have a tiny pony!).

I'm working my way through S2 at the moment.

I like Max and Paddy a lot. Tonight’s episode was well funnier then the last weeks episode. I laugh my head off when Paddy was gone to appear in a porn movie but didn’t know it was a gay one. Hehe liked the name “Willy Wanker”

I liked Max story on when he fall in love with a girl in his past. Very touching. I feel sorry for that guy.

I watched the full episode of Peep Show for the first time and I thought it was really good.

I like coupling but it's not as good now Jeff's left to go to Lesbos.  Also I like My parents are aliens.  It's a kids show but it's still funny.

I find Peep Show quite amusing, nice new angle as well. Coupled with Father Ted after and Max&Paddy before I find myself AFK in my games and watching them instead. Also, I have never heard the f word used so much just after 10.

No, Bo'Selecta doesn't count because it's shit.

Arthur Matthews only turns up when they need someone who can scream hysterically at one of the characters.

My favourite sketch is the Hot Cakes/Too Many Cooks sketch from series two.

I recently got hooked on this show, too. Both the characters remind me so much of people I know. I especially liked the episode where Mark urinated on his boss' desk.
