Not me, I'm afraid. How was it?

Just watched Bad Sugar on 4, that was pretty decent.
Decent as in weird/decent. With a good cast.

It was very silly. Right up my street!

I thought it would be a hot topic on here what with it being a spoof.

Part two is on tomorrow night.

Best thing I have seen on the telly for ages.
If I had been drinking tea at the time, it would have probably come out of my nose.

But it's ok, I don't like tea, so I should be alright for part two tonight.............

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts,
And I looked and behold: a pale horse.
And his name, that sat on him, was Death.
And Hell followed with him........

Was going to watch it until I realised it wasn't called "Touching cloth" and therefore wasn't actually a documentary about the problems of reaching a toilet when the turtle's head is rearing.

Watched Ep 2 this evening. Really enjoyable. Sort of like a Brit version of Airplane.

Recommended viewing.

Regards

Skoob.

Totally agree Skoob. Funnily enough Airplane was on straight after the second part. Remember 'Police Squad' also with Leslie Nielsen. Reminded me of that. Still can't believe they only made one series of it.

A Touch of Cloth is going to be a trilogy. Can't wait for the next one.

Added a link for you. Forum is interesting.

Regular updates too. Useful if you enjoy TV comedy.

Yeah, I remember Police Squad. Loved it. The 'Word On The Street' shoeshine chap and Nordburger, the too tall cop whose head never fitted into the frame.

Julia Davis had a new series start too, a sort of period thing. I'll have to catch up on that too. Loved 'Nighty Night.'

Regards

Skoob.

May I just say that we've recorded it and have yet to watch it?

No?

OK.

Don't be silly Ellis! Of course you can say that.

There aren't any spoilers in this thread mate.

Enjoy the show!

Oh, thanks, Skoob - that's a load off. In that case:

We've recorded it and have yet to watch it.

I feel better now.

See what happened there?

I toss in a useful link which I would imagine most people here (at least the UK based ones) would, I think, find potentiallly interesting...and ZAP! Instantly buried.

It's back there, a few posts back.

Loved 'Nighty Night'. Sky +'d 'Hunderby'. Not watched it yet.

Cheers for the linkage.

Simon,

Just downloading Hunderby. Not quite sure what to expect.

Maybe we can compare notes when we've seen it?

Just watched Hunderby. Some good lines, but I'm not altogether sure it quite knows where it's going, or what it wants to be.

Kind of reminded me of The League Of Gentlemen.

Regards

Skoob.

ToC:

517,000 watched the first episode, 384,000 the conclusion.

Hunderby doubled Sky Atlantic's usual audience (no numbers).

According to Broadcast today, anyway.
