In your opinion. Certainly one that is not shared by everyone. :D



If enough viewers from any country like it enough to make it commercially viable, it's likely to be recommissioned.

And yet you continue to post on a thread about a programme that you know you have no time for.

Seems a bit obsessive to me,



There is something odd about it - I think it looks as if they are...

This is getting funnier and funnier. Much better, I think, than the first series.

The scene where FDLT falls to the floor was even better than the famous David Jason bar flap scene, because it was...

I though this first episode was excellent.

Some of it was naff, but it had so many laugh out loud moments that easily made up for it.

I think that they consider programmes on BBC1/2 have higher visibility and will therefore be more likely to get a bigger audience.

I'm pretty sure that a lot of people consider BBC4 too 'highbrow'...

Enjoyable series but the 'noise' was way over the top so it wasn't a patch on Twenty Twelve.

In that series we really just had Sioban's constant, meaningless, prattle. Most of the others actually...

Thanks; I had misinterpreted her reaction to his digs at Will as her being annoyed at Will's uselessness, rather than at his slagging him off.

Although he's hopeless and annoying, he dies have a...

I can see what they are trying to do but feel they've just gone that little bit too far. Too many endlessly repeated noise words and Will is FAR too daft to be believable. It's supposed to be a...

Yes, I did mean ADSL2+.

We were supposedly changed to that some years back. I'm not rural - about 2km, as the crow flies, to the exchange.

Thanks for all the info.

What may have caused this

I got my current broadband in around 2004. The speed was around 2.8Mb/s and remained that way no matter what: four different routers over time, the arrival of ADSL+, changing to leaving the router on...

This excellent series has now ended and there was no announcement about a follow up.

Strange that something as good as this gets virtually ignored.
