And not the dross DP does. It's fucking hilarious.

DP sits there with a face like a slapped arse when it's on

Pantone363 Wed 03-Feb-16 09:34:54

Have you seen the new episodes? I'm saving them for when DP isn't here!

We absolutely love it. It is hilarious (and live at the SECC this October coming). Greg McHugh came to visit our school too after a pupil wrote to him. He was fantastic and well worth writing to.

I wish they would do another series, I can watch over and over and still find it funny

buddhasbelly Wed 03-Feb-16 09:36:33

Pantone363 Wed 03-Feb-16 09:37:02

I've never seen it, but saw him in panto a few years back. I had no clue who he was, clearly everyone else did, and he had me roaring. I thought he was the best thing in the panto.

It's a few years old op, they aren't new. Brilliant show. I could watch it on repeat.

Pantone363 Wed 03-Feb-16 09:38:54

My Netflix says new episodes hmm

Decanter Wed 03-Feb-16 09:39:13

So in conclusion; YANBU smile

PaulAnkaTheDog Wed 03-Feb-16 09:48:28

Yes, new on Netflix. They've recently got the rights to it and uploaded. It's a BBC series from about six years ago.

He's a great actor. Loved him in Fresh Meat.

Pantone363 Wed 03-Feb-16 21:11:23

"Hullo United Nations? Aye its me, Gary"

SonyaAtTheSamovar Wed 03-Feb-16 23:20:22

Loved this. And Greg McHugh is also brilliant in Fresh Meat.
Totally different characters - that must be with him like being an actor! grin But I still mention it every time I see him in either role..

LoisWilkersonsLastNerve Wed 03-Feb-16 23:29:12

I must admit, the first time me and dh watched it we thought it was terrible but once you 'get it' its hilarious. I've only seen one episode ofFresh Meat, I might watch the rest.
