gay musical called ..GAY!.... i enjoyed that too...

Peachy Tue 28-Aug-07 17:39:59

I loved it! we only found out about the return a few hours before- yay! perked me up no end grin

My dh loves it, I'm a slightly 'meh' about it.

Aitch Tue 28-Aug-07 17:41:58

i've seen the first two eps, it's the highlight of my week. grin

Is it better than the first series then? I ran out of puff with that, and considering that I think Chris Morris is a demi-god and I love Father Ted, I was a bit surprised at myself.

Love it!! So glad it's back.

Thi is the funniest thing on telly. Agree with Rory re the bit where Moss was the barman. Makes me snort even now. Even when you kmow what's coming it's still hilarious. Downloaded the last series for DP who didn't see it and I have 5 episodes to rewatch tonight. Including the one with the fire! grin Life is good.

Thought it was ace. This series (well, ep 1) is a bit more Father Ted than the last one, in that it's more about behaving very SLIGHTLY badly and then being punished for it by being HORRIBLY EMBARRASSED. I love the way it isn't afraid to be really broad and silly, especially after years of things trying to be documentary style no laugh track because the Office was such a massive hit. Like Nighty Night stuff, it's just really hard to watch!

claricebeansmum Tue 28-Aug-07 17:52:49

Love it too...

Watched it with dp and friend on friday, - me and dp were giggling helplessly on the sofa, and friend watched us bemused and said 'you do realise this is NOT funny don't you?'.

But it is, it's funny.

Lawks, I couldn't stand Nighty Night. I mean, if you knew a woman like that in real life, you'd tell her where to stick it, wouldn't you? Not continue to socialise with her and get tied up in whoops-there-go-my-trousers-type situations.

FlameBatfink Tue 28-Aug-07 18:07:54

It's back!?!?!? shockgrin

catinthehat Tue 28-Aug-07 18:11:28

I really hurt myself laughing at the 2nd half of ep1. Have replayed it since and it is still funny. "I'm disAAAbled" is like Father Ted "These are small and those are far away", just say it to myself and giggle. Can see it being completely ho hum to many people though

TheArmadillo Tue 28-Aug-07 18:15:02

I liked the first series (wouldn't have said I loved it) and it seemed never to be as funny as it could potentially be.

I watched an episode of the new series and thought it was dire. THe worst thing I find is the ideas have so much potential and it is always almost hilariously funny but just misses it a bit.

The nerd guy is from Garth Merenghi's dark place I think and he was really good in that, but it just never seems to fulfill it's potential.

FingerInTheMash Tue 28-Aug-07 18:22:28

I do get some programes over here and my Godmother kindly posted this to me and i don't understand the humour, i think its because i have never worked in an office.

Peachy Tue 28-Aug-07 18:51:01

It's certainly a very specific sense of humour, thats for sure. Not sure whether you need to have worked in an office, but having spent a LOT of time with geeks (and married one!) helps LOL

margosbeenplayingwithmynoonoo Tue 28-Aug-07 18:57:19

love it - although I haven't seen Fridays episode yet

Ishouldbeworking Tue 28-Aug-07 19:10:28

Saw my first episode on Friday and was helpless when they burst into the toilet.

Pollyanna Tue 28-Aug-07 19:11:00

watched it with dh last friday - we both thought it was hilarious grin

Bomper Tue 28-Aug-07 19:23:41

Hilarious, was crying with laughter. Moss is FAB!!!

macneil Tue 28-Aug-07 19:24:54

I didn't write my post very well - just in case you thought I meant the opposite, I also loathed Nighty Night. It tries too hard to shock but doesn't feel remotely real, then the IT Crowd is just stupid and broad, but the characters are genuinely recognisable. (Also married a geek.)

skerriesmum Tue 28-Aug-07 19:26:56

I love it too! "Willies, willies, I love willies!" The one show DH and I both enjoy watching (he's a BIG geek and we used to work together in IT so a lot of it really resonates.)

policywonk Tue 28-Aug-07 19:27:26

s'OK, macneil, I got that!

My DP also a geek (programmer/computer helpline person). I know it's an old joke now, but he does love the 'Have you turned it off and on again?' line.

pointydog Tue 28-Aug-07 19:40:26

hmm.

Is it better than the first series 'cause that was most unfunny.
