Used to love it. But without Tim Vine, it's poor. Very poor. Even Lee Mack, whom I think is funny, can't carry the programme on his own. The best bits were always their dynamic together.

I totally agree, we got half way through the first one and it was just too much farce and not enough lightness, we have all the others on DVD as we loved it. Such a shame.

Is Tim Vine not in this series? That is a shame ...

I miss Tim.

lee mack just does too many eric morecambe isms (sp!) he's starting to really irk me for some reason

He's getting too old to playing the comical lazy oaf of a flatmate. Now looking like an old perv sat on the sofa rubbing his knees.

That first episode with the rabbits. Ugh. And I can't stand the simple g/f character as she is in it more. It just doesn't work.

I love the actress who plays the girlfriend, she is great in her sketch show Anna and Katy, not so much in Not Going Out though.

I have always loved this show but have been really let down by the first couple of this new series, just seemed really silly and clunky instead of the easy wittiness of earlier ones

The new series isn't working at all for me.

Its just dire at the moment

A typical example of a good series initially that has been flogged to death.

Oh god the ski lift one was terrible! It even had a cliche birth.

Allthingspretty Mon 15-Apr-13 07:57:34

But where is Tim? Is he going.to be in it at all?

Pancakeflipper Wed 17-Apr-13 18:05:07

No he left. Decided to not do this series.

Sobs. Not even bothered watching the 2nd episode after reading your reviews.

I thought I was the only one not liking the new series. It seemed really laboured(inset pun here) and very try hard. No one seemed very into it either. Shame, I really enjoyed the last few series.
