i think it's absolutely fantastic. it's just that right level of comedy and emotional investment that makes it obvious that ricky isn't poking fun, and that's it's a genuine, heartfelt show.

much appreeesh, I shall certainly make it a show I'll find time to watch asap. Loved Extras and An Idiot Abroad, and what I saw of the UK Office I really dug as well. Big fan of the deliberate awkward and cringe humour he employs where its hard to watch a scene because of how embarassing/clueless a character is and you feel embarassed that they're not aware how dim they are. Extras pretty much perfected that form of humour with Maggie in particular.

David Earl and Kerry Godliman are great aren't they? It's very 'real' feeling, very subtle in places and very documentary like, even by mockumentary standards.

Kevins voice, haha.

And it's been commissioned for a season 2, which Gervais had said he was going to self fund and do, even if a network didn't pick it up, but Channel 4 commissioned a second season anyway.

Loved everything so far. The show does a great job at making each of the main characters truly awful and conceited people and then managing to shine them in a better light moments later before once again highlighting their selfish ways. All of the main cast so far add to the show. Charlie and Dee generally come off as more naive & simple people but in Charlie's case he's already proven to be the most despicable of the lot with his antics in episode 4. In many ways he's less of an obvious asshole like Mac & Dennis, but when you strip back and actually look at what he's done he becomes a lot more sinister and less appealing. Like Mac is pretty much the most obvious dickhead of the group in regular conversation, but so far Dennis & Charlie's most despicable acts have trumped Mac's. Though his story in Episode 7 of Season 1 really highlighted how fucked up he is.

There's a lot of great humour in the show. Charlie's constant fits of anger and high pitched screaming are always welcomed, and the Season 2 episode might have been the best example of that when he, Dennis & Mac are trapped outside the bar after being fenced in and they all slowly unravel in the space of 20 seconds when they can't move. Loved the teenagers commenting how much of an asshole Mac was when they all crash the teenagers party in Episode 5, the fact it played off an earlier joke that Mac was an obvious douche who nobody liked in High School was even better. Charlie getting caught up in teenage lingo and high school cliques in the same episode was pretty great as well.

De Vito looks to have added to the show already from the 2 episodes of Season 2. Brings a chaotic and selfish attitude that lends itself to the others and the friction between he, Dennis, Dee & likely Charlie already looks promising. His soon to be ex-wife is also a rather amazing snobbish character. Lucille Booth may not have been this cold and snobby to common folk.
Glad you like it Woolcock.

It actually improves pretty much season by season so you've got a hell of a lot more to look forward too.

She was the worst in season 3 and her personality never really changes but throughout the rest of the show shes the one who has really got Jack's back through thick and thin. I didn't mind the character though.

Chloe's awesome.

Watched the Always Sunny pilot last night actually. Gonna have to catch up with SI and mirror his viewing. Calling you SI from now on btw. Username and you actual names are a handful so SI it is. Oh and I liked it.

I'm not trying to break your heart btw Eric. I have the BSG DVDs in front of me right now but I'm waiting until post exams to watch them in the summer. Can't get addicted to 40+ minute episodes with assignments coming up

I'll probably forget about this change in a matter of days and be bemused but for now, SI it is.

Yeah I haven't seen 24 since I ran through and stopped at like Season 6 I think. Whichever had Christopher Henderson I think his name was as a big part of the plot. Chloe got better for me since her debut and by the last series I saw she was someone I dug a lot. Her frienship with Edgar was always great.

Concur with people saying Its Always Sunny improves btw. Up to episode 4 of Season 2 now and every episode so far has been gold. The plot between Dennis & Dee in the prior episode, oh my magic stars. It was grand.
