I was having a conversation earlier about Chewin' The Fat. It was in relation to the fact that, generally, if you take a comedy out of its native language/dialect, it's pish. For example, the "gonnae no dae that sketch" is a quality banter but if you translate it to standard english it sucks:

Don't do that.

Why?

Just, don't.

Little Britain is dire. In my humble opinion, ofcourse.

Fawlty Towers - classic. "The Psychiatrist" was one of the funniest things I had seen for years.

I think Little Britain is the most overrated show out there...it is okay...but very repetitive and not funny after a while

IT Crowd is amazing...easily the funniest thing on tv at the mo

No i'm not gay!


If anything i'm quite Homophobic, don't know why though.


And Little Britain is severely over rated, it isn't even any good and very repetitive.

The thing with Little Britain is that they aren't being allowed to change much because the BBC has decided that what is being done is good, so shouldn't be changed.

The two guys aren't actually as bad as little britain would lead you to believe. It's just they're being restricted into repetitive boringness.

Monty python wins easily. 45 episodes and two classic movies. Their stuff was pretty original and varied.
Signatures suck. They clog up websites and serve no purpose.
