Not sure if this is available on the BBC world service yet but I must say it is a welcome return to the League of Gentlemen style of comedy. A well blended mix of the macabre and the mundane, with sufficient silliness to keep you from getting too disturbed by it.

Rarely do I instantly take to a new comedy show, but this has so far been a welcome breath of fresh air, and it has the unmistakable tight scripting that the League of Gentlemen always deliver (although Gatiss is clearly too busy to help write it, Shearsmith and Pemberton have done well in his absence).

I was most impressed with the latest installment since the whole thing involved only 3 characters and the entire episode consisted of just one scene. Yet the writing kept you interested throughout, also it was nice to see Gatiss have his cameo (with twist).

BUMP Sorry its a bit late, but I just LOVE this series. Episode 4 was brilliant. It was a huge homage to Rope, but I just like how they made a reference to the actual murderers based on that film, the college students that saw themselves as if they were like supermen, and the way they reference it was the Superman dance. Brilliant writing, fantastic dark humor and every character is great. Also, some of the minor characters were good as well, like the old lady Mr.Jelly was handcuffed to.
Personally, my favourite joke was when David said to Maureen that he'd get the police and said "999 Lets-Be Avenue, that's where they live!"

Yay! Someone else likes Psychoville enough to post, I was feeling all "hands up who got a tape?"

So many funny moments in this show and like any good show it's getting better from repeat viewings.

Mr Jelly is perhaps the greatest Reece Shearsmith character ever.

Just like to say the series was awesome until the final five minutes of episode 7...then it just added an unnecessary plot element and ended badly....good cliffhanger though
Is there gonna be another series?

You jerks, I mentioned this in the TV Test Thread weeks ago!

But yeah, the ending was pretty badly thought out. I expect they will make series 2 if the DVD sales are good.

It deserves a thread of it's own, Nurdy. smile

And series 2 is a dead cert, this is the BBC we're talking about.

In that case, check the entry out on Wikipedia for all the internet viral advertising. My Jolly and Mr Jellies websites are the best.
