loved it growing up, and hoping the new series won't disappoint.

I would rather pull my teeth out with pliers!

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Thu 02-Jan-14 03:22:43

Or pluck out my own eyes with a soup spoon!

Alaskanebraska Thu 02-Jan-14 03:22:53

Fuck no

Twinklestarstwinklestars Thu 02-Jan-14 03:23:03

I'm hoping its good too watched some old ones lately

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Thu 02-Jan-14 03:24:32

I may evev gnaw off my own ears in order to avoid it...

Noooooooo. <<Throws TV out of window rock star style>>

Yes UAB VVV U.
Not even mildly amusing the first time round.

TidyDancer Thu 02-Jan-14 07:05:11

Can't wait for this. It was brilliant first time around, just hoping it lives up to it this time.

iloveweetos Thu 02-Jan-14 07:18:51

Lol loved it when I was younger. Can't wait to watch smile

HECTheHeraldAngelsSing Thu 02-Jan-14 07:25:53

I wont be watching.
it never works when they try to bring things back, imo.
it had its time.
It's just lazy to try to start it up again rather than come up with something new.

it was already getting dull the first time. Oooh a horny old woman, oooh, lots of put downs. Not a lot of content.

Matt Willis is playing Garth.

I have a huge crush on him.

Wishfulmakeupping Thu 02-Jan-14 08:24:49

I'll watch the first one see how it is. Used to like it but think the fact that Garth is now my age whereas he was at least 10 years older than me might be distracting hmm

This is the first I've heard of it.
I saw Linda Robson on TV the other day and thought she was looking very old, then I saw myself and thought the same!
What channel is it on?

LyingWitchInTheWardrobe Thu 02-Jan-14 10:29:45

Me too! I saw Lesley Joseph at Stansted airport about 20 years ago... I was quite star struck. blush

MrsDavidBowie Thu 02-Jan-14 10:30:54

god no.
How sad it will be to see Dorian behaving inappropriately.
And Linda Robson just being loud and mouthy.

Pauline Quirke at least can act. Surely her agent could have got her something better.

Broadchurch to Birds of a Feather . shock

One of the few sitcoms that passed the Bechdel test. Brilliant show, we watched the whole of series 1 in the car on a long journey yesterday (I wasn't driving) and loved it.

SamU2 Thu 02-Jan-14 10:34:49

I can't wait to watch it smile

SamU2 Thu 02-Jan-14 10:35:31

I met Lesley Joseph and she was pretty mean to me hmm

drbonnieblossman Thu 02-Jan-14 10:48:18

lesley Joseph is in her 70s now. I feel so bloody old.

they are all a bit wrinkly, it's true. I think I read that one of the characters is Pauline Quirk's actual son. I know both their sons have been on stage with them too.

I was thinking about this the other day and it's relevance to today.

Can you imagine Sharon's Aibu:
My husband is in prison, Aibu, to move into my sisters big house, whilst still keeping my council property and claiming jsa, whilst not looking for work?

Dorians
My rich husband is a workoholic, Aibu to have lots of affairs, with sexy young men?

Tracy
My husband is in prison after being a career bank robber. Aibu to continue living in my huge house, sending son son to private school after knowing how these things have been paid for?

wimblehorse Thu 02-Jan-14 11:14:29

Jeez. At least open all hours was just a one-off. A series? There's loads of good tv at the moment -currently watching far too much breaking bad- why would anyone watch birds of a feather 20 years past its sell by date?

clarinetV2 Thu 02-Jan-14 11:31:24

YANBU. I've been looking forward to it for days. I'm about ages with Pauline Quirke and I loved the things she was in as an adolescent - anyone remember Pauline's Quirkes? I think she's just about my favourite actress, and Birds of a Feather my favourite ever sitcom by a long way. Roll on this evening!

It's being shown on ITV. The BBC wouldn't touch it, apparently, even though they ran the show for years.

I read that the cast really wanted a new series for financial reasons and that the script sat in the BBC waiting to be picked up for some time.

That should at least set your expectations!
