It's a pity the BBC had to use the original title, because now amateur reviewers will tear it to pieces for not being identical to its 35 year-old predecessor, for not resembling every other similar...

Frankie Boyle can be funny, but my test is to ask myself whether I would really notice if he disappeared from showbiz and the answer is 'no'.

He's a gag merchant - a clever one - but all same just a...

Clearance? Who do the BBC have to clear it with? Don't they produce the programme 'in-house'.

Edit - Sorry, I was too eager, you said 'the clips'. Yes in that case it's probably not clearance, but...

Give it a rest man, what are you his PR manager?

Agreed. Parrott and McCoist had the balance between slightly comedic uncle-types and accomplished, knowledgeable sportsmen.

QoS used to be a comfortable old Lyle & Scott jumper, now it's starting to...

I'd forgotton about 'Rev'. I enjoyed that from the off. It's the type of comedy England does best: slightly failed/failing characters in limbo between youthful past and the rapidly approaching 40s,...

Milf? She's only 34 years old. This appellation is afforded to younger and younger women every year. And she's good-looking in any case.

How old are you, 12 or something?

I wouldn't want to be deemed clever by a stupid person, it's not an accolade.

Fry is not as likeable as he once was (in the 80s/90s I thought he was supreme). He's in danger of becoming a TV Bono.

Enjoyed all the episodes of this. I just wonder why Coogan agreed to portray a character based on himself in such a defeated way. At some points I did think 'he's washed up and lost' and at other...

Exactly. It's a real tonic to the plethora of over-serious or 'officially' funny crapola, especially the trend of 'attack' comedy.
The rule of comedy ought to be: if it makes you laugh and makes you...

I hope not. I'll admit that a decade ago I saw QoS as old-fashioned in comarison, but now it seems like an oasis of normality in a BBC full of idiotic celebrity quiz shows.

I hate this sort of 'spiv' celebrity. She makes money from selling her life like a soap opera; all her dirty washing in public, thinly disguised as warts-and-all pop psychology.

Hahaha.. quite.
And the OP may be premature in thinking mummy dear is no longer a fan, since he refuses to show her the offending video.
Too much parent/child reversal going on here.

She was good with the banter on Frank Skinner's show. And Skinner is hard to go up against when he's on form.
My disclaimer here is that I personally find Frank Skinner funny. Just in case the...

Is that right? Well, in fairness perhaps everyone needs a second chance; though perhaps slotting him into every second early-evening programme shouldn't be part of that chance.

He's very boy-like and unmasculine though, (at least his TV persona is) so having a woman impersonate him works on some level.
