Being Jewish, I want to like it but I just don't. It's badly acted (apart from Tamsin Greig), the dialogue is unbelievable and puerile (but not in a good way) and for me it's not even vaguely funny. I am totally with lighhouse and kerstina. Lame.

I love inbetweeners only recently discovered it though. Friday night dinner is not as funny.

I thought it was rubbish. All that coughing and spluttering I hate that kind of humour, that's why I could never watch Inbetweeners.

Bunny / lawnmower - you just knew, didn't you?
Not any less funny for that.
Same as the dress / bonfire episode.
But I quite like seeing it coming....

Well I've just watched it. It's all abit samey I doubt I'll bother watching again.

I did really laugh at the bit when Dad rounded on his son with a knife and that sounds wrong

that was bloody brilliant !

I was just going to start a thread to remind everyone. It is a bit hit and miss but I love it! Watched the bitch face one again on u tube and it is just hilarious at the end !!

Love it !!

Well, I was thinking that. And I wondered why none of my Jewish friends had watched it, given the subject in the title. Alot of them dont put the telly on until Saturday night. Its along shot but, I think more of them will be watching it now although it is on blinking late

Yeah surely it should be on Friday night?!

I know Geekster, it feels wrong that it's going to be on Sundays.

Thanks for that, I hadn't realised it was back especially as its hidden away on a Sunday.

Shit on it!!

Will the dad be in his pants again?

lisaro Thu 04-Oct-12 13:44:34

I think it's very hit and miss but the hits well overcome the misses. I'm looking forward to it.

Great heads up, thanks! One of the best-written sitcoms of recent times IMO smile

MrsFruitcake Thu 04-Oct-12 06:29:20

Sorry, Channel 4, 10.05, this Sunday!

MrsFruitcake Thu 04-Oct-12 06:27:43

But on at 10.35 on a Sunday for some unknown reason.

This is well worth a watch if you haven't seen it before.
