I think this post may have a touch of the "in crowd" about it. What are "bacon's tv reviews" , and what is MoS?
Richard Bacon on Radio 5 live I'm guessing.
MoS, again guessing Mail on Sunday, 'write up'.
I won't be watching, unless I stumble across it.
Just thought I'd see how irate people can get about Gervais, because other people are into him and sing his praises.
Found the Pilkington show a bit too much like bullying for me, comedy persona or not, felt like mocking the afflicted for me.
