Mrs Brown's Boys S3 Discussion
 
Who's looking forward to this? :D

Also, a question about a possible plothole. In S1, Dino (Rory's boyfriend is a chef, then in S2 he's a hairdresser, this is never explained, was this done just to fit into the stories, anyone reckon?

I'm looking forward to this as well. I've seen some clips on the BBC's Youtube page and they were hilarious.

If I remember correctly, Dino is a hairdresser who was previously a chef (which is why he cooked a meal for Hilary, Maria's mum) in Series 1.

Can't wait for this. :D Double helping next week on Christmas Eve and Boxing Day before series 3 begins on New Year's Day!

One snippet of info for this series is that well known RTE presenters Derek Mooney and Joe Duffy have cameo roles in a couple of episodes :)

D.M.N. 24-12-2012 21:59

Bump for 15 minutes time. :D

SuperDude95 24-12-2012 22:15

Here we go :D

Yeah, more of the same old tat.

What people see in this peurile rubbish is a mystery.

You are the one watching it;)

robwillsmith 24-12-2012 22:27

If you don't like it. Don't watch. Simples.

D.M.N. 24-12-2012 22:48

Good episode mainly building up to Boxing Day so probably best to look at it overall then.

Lakeuk 24-12-2012 22:49

Cracking episode, although I wish the announcer would talk over the end credits

Fudd 24-12-2012 22:50

I enjoyed it. The best comedies can blend humour, sadness and sentimental moments to create a fully round show and I think it managed it tonight with the final scene, even if it was a bit cheesy!

Martin Phillp 24-12-2012 22:55

Preferred the first part of this Christmas special to last years already. An excellent storyline with just the right amount of puerile humour.

Why are you watching it then?

Eurostar 24-12-2012 23:03

Enjoyed it, especially Mrs Brown's ongoing battle with the snobbish Mrs Nicholson :D

I'd imagine most people know what to expect from the show by now, why did you think it would suddenly change?

Billy_Value 24-12-2012 23:13

worst episode ever

tawe 24-12-2012 23:15

Good laugh as always and something that we need with so many misery guts out there

Jonwo 24-12-2012 23:31

I thought it was great and the ending was really sweet, looking forward to the Boxing Day episode which is the Nativity itself,

alex_r_pc 24-12-2012 23:31

I was genuinely moved by the end of the episode. Yes it was a little cheesy but the whole thing came together and was sweet and moving and it does mean something (at least I thought) if one has suffered a loss and particuarly recently.

Well done to all involved in that final scene!

Yvie123 24-12-2012 23:56

I've never watched it before, but I thought it was great!
It really made me laugh in parts; I'm looking forward to part two, and I'll have to catch up with the series' I've missed out on:)

strewth 25-12-2012 00:02

Winnie was great tonight. The conversation about Richard Branson was marvellous

RobbieSykes123 25-12-2012 00:05

Great stuff - plenty of fantastic belly laughs as usual.

It flagged a little at times and the ending, whilst sweet, lacked a big rude sledgehammer punchline gag that I was waiting for but which never arrived. But sets it up nicely for Boxing Day - hopefully the Beeb can properly trail that tomorrow and Boxing Day without making people think it's a repeat; the trailer for tonight included stuff from part 2 so I suspect that was the only trailer that will air for the festive two parter.

As it is plainly a genuine two parter rather than two separate stand alone festive episodes, I can't help thinking this should would have been better airing as a one hour episode.

Pretty sure that Christmas carol at the end was in Irish.....not often you hear the Irish language on UK TV :)

Yes I was expecting Mrs Brown to tell the group at the bottom of the stairs to "**** off, you bunch of fecking eejits" :D
