Just wondered if anyone was watching this and relating in a horrified kind of way to Harriet Schulenburg?
I cannot stop laughing at this grotesquely funny programme. Mark Heap is a comic genius. First Spaced, and now this.

It's really good fun, but I do find the camera work v dizzying. I did prefer Spaced.

Never saw Spaced but am loving Green Wing. Hysterical. And the hour goes so fast !

Love it, but exciting social life/ early sleeps means always miss it.

need tivo or sky plus or summat

Kayleigh · 30/09/2004 11:51

Flumpreviouslybutwhatdoiknow, we usually tape it. Not due to a hectic social life. Purely cos either me or dh usually fall asleep during it .

marina, in exciting showbiz-type name dropping exercise..met him at a party and he mentioned he was doing something medical...

i LOVE show, btw. but keep missing it too

Repeated at 11.10pm on Saturdays if you don't mind watching it with a saucer-eyed Grobag-wearing little person over one shoulder...

It's funny you should say that bundle, I was at a ds-schoolfriend birthday party and another mum there worked with him in his early theatre days and also said he was delightful. Apparently his recorder-playing "technique" dates from this time. If you socialise with him on a regular basis please tell him I love him.

I love this programme!! Is Harriet the mum with the white board? If so yep that feels like me at times Pure brilliance

Marina · 30/09/2004 13:00

Yes she is Crunchie. Particularly relished scene where she arrived at work immaculate apart from having forgotten to put on her skirt. Good to see I am not the only person haring about after her family while not fully dressed

and when she had left kids in car in office car park... ...priceless

CAme across this last night and thought it was hilarious!

crunchie · 30/09/2004 14:31

Yep that skirt thing is totally me in the morning, I send them to get dressed then run around in a pair of jeans and no top or whatever. My fave moment was the whiteboard when she 'couldn't find Robbie'

Have not seen too much of this, although the bits I have seen were really funny, i loved spaced as well. Also think scrubs is very funny

lou33 · 03/10/2004 00:54

I watched it again just now (housewarming party). The more I see of it the more I love it. Also find the ad break man in a mini bloody hilarious with his silly jokes

Right I have hidden the brownies to stop early rising children searching them out for breakfast, and am off to bed now.

See you about tomorrow no doubt
