Talking of British TV, is anyone else watching 'Auf Wiedersehen, Pet'?

Thinks a TOTPD may be due, cautiously does one. . .

It only started in the 80s, they must've been watching something else.

And the original theme tune was a lot better.

I was in hysterics for most of it - and the ratings beat Big Brother! YES!

Exactly. Does anyone else think it's a bit "convenient" that the story came out just in time for the programme that would be opposite the new series of Big Brother? I smell a PR stunt!

It was funny though   laff

Apparently the BBC are thinking of sacking Angus Deayton and replacing him with Stephen Fry.

As you would expect, they show it here  big grin

It was pretty embarrasing, though. RTE (Irish state broadcaster) hated Dermot Morgan and refused to buy the series. Channel 4 bought it, made a killing, and RTE had to go to them with their tail between their legs and buy it back for an absolute fortune. HAHAHAHA!! That's what they get for not supporting Irish talent.

Dave Gorman (guest): "Have you seen Eastenders recently Angus? Ian Beale slept with a prostitute and now she is threatening to blackmail him"
Angus: "Yes, but of course soaps don't portray real life at all (!)"

By favourite joke was a non Angus one though:

In relation to the head line "Pootie-Poot Putin
IAN: This is the nickname Bush has for Putin. Personally I think it is just a memoire. (Imitating Bush) "Pootie... Poot... Putin. Thats the name".
ANGUS: He's got one for Blair too
IAN: "Here boy?(!)"

It's funny cos its true.

That reminds me of the optitians bit.
Optician: 'Well his eyesight seems fine, he even read to the bottom line, and i can't see that one'

Camera switches to eyechart showing
D R I N K
D R I N K
as eyecharts do.

Ted: 'Ah, you see father Jack has a particular fondness for that word so why don't you try a different one'
Optician: 'Ah, ok father' (Ted and Dougal leave) 'Now this one was given to me by (Some name i forgot that the anacronym was on the chart)'

This line has me in stitches every time I see it.

IAN: Angus, surely you paid her for the article. I mean, I don't want to dwell on it, but (opens paper and flicks to article) "Angus had me groaning all night"?!? What were you doing, reading the autocue?!

The gangsta rap line keeps coming up in conversations too.
