FUCK YOU TINKY WINKY! AUF WEIDERSHEIN PET, THE PARTY'S OVER! GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD, WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT HITLER? WELL HE HAD A MOUSTACHE AND HE LIVED OVER THERE!
I'm fairly sure I could live out the rest of my life quite well if all I could quote were the two specials.
You're the fucking shittiest James Bond ever, you know that? You're David fucking Niven!
Is it weird a part of me longs to apply for a dead end job, purposely find myself the most insufferable co-workers and then long for the day when I descend into a tirade, keeping a list of Glen quotes in my desk for good measure?
EAT THE FUCKING CHEESE!!
He thinks he's leaking now? Wait till I get through with him. He'll look like Mel Gibson's Jesus!!
Who was it that did your media training? Myra Hindley? It's terrible! All these hands all over the place! You were like a sweaty octopus trying to unhook a bra! It was like watching John Leslie at work!
It makes me happy to see you passing on the recommendation I gave you.
I'M A ONE TRACK LOVER.
Um yeah, pretty much everything's been covered, to the guy that mentioned Still Game: I adore Still Game, seriously do, almost certainly one of my top 5 most watched shows ever but it is a very fucking Scottish show, at least for the first 3 series, I love it to fucking bits but any non-Scot I've tried to get into it has hated it. Same with Limmy actually, it's weird.
Yeah anything by ARMANDO GOD AMONGST GODS IANNUCI deserves a damn good mention, whether it be Alan Partridge, The Day Today (If you've watched Brass Eye you should watch the Day Today since it's kinda the prequel series in a sense), The Armando Iannuci Shows (Most folk haven't heard of it, I love it but it might be a bit too surreal for many) and the one I'm disgusted people haven't mentioned yet, the holiest of all holy shows, THE THICK OF IT/IN THE LOOP, so to all of you I can say only this:
Also anything by Charlie Brooker, in particular Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe/Newswipe/Gameswipe, they're kinda review shows but they're mainly ways of letting Charlie Brooker vent and moan at shit in the best way possible.
One of, if not THE best posts in my humble Telly thread. Props to Anark for exposing me to The Brass Eye as well.
