Interested to know what you think of that one - series 1 & 2 were faultless, but I found the format of the 3rd series didn't work for me; there were some episodes I really enjoyed, but overall I was a litle disappointed (although not as much as with the film...)

The repetititititition was over-worked, (just like later series of the Fast Show and everything Whitehouse has done since), in a programme that had a wealth of comedic characters, surreal situations and inspired catch-phrases (You're my wife now Dave) the characters, situations and catch phrases needed more variation and less repetitititititition, or there needed to be fewer episodes ... it just got predicatable.

Series three is me favourite. So I disagree with both of you.Wink

Dean, how you can call series three predictable is beyond me.

Must have got confused.ConfusedLOL

No you didn't.

But the "You're My Wife Now" catchphrase was only actually used in two episodes. It's legacy is greater.

Tubbs: Will heaven be like Swansea?
Edward: Yes, Tubbs. Only... bigger....



And one of Edward's which should be inscribed above the stone portal to ProgArchives:

"We don't bother the outside world, we don't want it bothering us"

Somehow I enjoy the Walking Dead despite it just being a wave rider on the zombie trend which I hate and every character on the show essentially being either moronic or deplorable.

I have read and loved the comics so after that I found the tv show to be very disappointing.

Going through the process of watching the brilliant season's of The Simpsons with commentary on, for the first time.  Am currently watching "A Fish Called Selema" in season 7.  Only one season left after this Cry (I'll eventually break down and buy season 9 but the rapid decay starts during that season).


Time always wins.
