Anyone see this? Very impressed, nice script written by 2 of the cast, plus Alison Steadman and Rob Brydon as nice minor characters. Well worth catching if you can.

I actually laughed out loud at it the other night - It was the comment from the mum - "I've just popped my earplugs in and your dad's out for the count so - go on let yourselves go!"

It's great, really surprising for a Beeb 3 comedy. Brydon rocks though, everything he's in seems to be good. Well nearly everything.

Lots of nice lines in it, all the cast were superb too. If you like Brydon make sure you see Director's Commentary and Cruise of the Gods.

Will do WOPR.

I think it worked because it wasn't trying too hard for the out and out gross-out stuff (though the site of that fat bloke poking at his arse because he'd been "owned" was a bit yuck)

Nice paps on Alison Steadman though, for an old gal.

I've got that covered - my missus gets free Sky through her work when her probationary period is up in July...

Anyone see the third episode last night?

SPOILERS

Some classic laugh out loud moments for me...the comment about "leek munching sheep shaggers" was hilarious, as was some of the freaky shit Nessa was coming out with.

It's weird, I should hate this proggy with a passion but it's been good so far. Rob Brydon and Alison Steadman are completely stealing the show though.

Yup, another great episode, liked the ending with Nessa's back covered in mud and him with muddy knees :D

All the cast are excellent, impressed that it was Smiffy and Nessa that wrote it as well.

Bit shitey last night, disappointingly. Though the bit with Nessa's mouth covered in cream was a bit cringetastic.

Shame - I bet you this won't get a second series.

Oh and a WTF to the trailer for a new sketch show that was on after it. Women licking bloke's arse sweat off gym equipment seats?!?!?!? BLEEEEE!

Last one last night and it was all coming to pieces. Too much assumption, too many script holes where they ran out of ideas, and too much of an emphasis on the drama bit of comedy drama in the end. What a shame.

At least the second series has been commissioned and is being written at the mo.

Best joke in last night's was definitely the Church one.

Hmm, I thought last night's was excellent, lots of threads running through it and some gags from previous episodes brought back with some more pay off.

Plenty of things left open to make a second series worth having.

Just felt like there was too much of a gap in plot between the last episode and this one.

Was good though - but there were a lot of O_o moments.

The fishing trip!?! What the heck happened!

Oh and Rob Brydon = comedy god.
