early doors was good but this is even better as its not just set in the pub
I wouldn't say it's better as it's not just set in a pub.
Very different in tone, Early doors wasn't gag, gag, gag like this.
No reason to play compare/contrast as they've so different from each other.
That's why I thought that post I responded to was so low rent.

Been enjoying the series too.

Great to see familiar sites of Stockport too like the Plaza and Viaduct. Seems a bit strange that they film the pub down in Battersea though.

What Pub is that, I've tried to run through the pubs I know, but I don't know that one.

Great episode tonight - especially when they were discussing Hodge problem which he referred to as ED so Glyn was trying to work out with Edd he was talking about - reminded me a bit of Trigger in OFAH.

Loved the bit when Glyn's posh friend asked Warren for a latte - we only do two types of coffees here mate
Maxwell House or Mellow Birds - absolute classic.

Why do people insist on saying the "train station" - it's an Americanism. In our English, it's the "railway station". Noticed that in "Privates" the other day. In 1960, there's no way an English person would have said the train station....Soz for the rant - just annoys me!!
I always call it the train station

I am really loving this series. I feel that all the characters are believable as a group, and there are some proper laugh-out-loud moments (for me anyway!). Great seeing Sue Devaney (last week) as I loved her in Dinnerladies, but I think my favourite character out of all the women is Hodge's wife, she's had some of the best lines imo - and the facial expressions she gets from Hodge are just priceless. In fact, Hodge's facial expressions are just priceless no matter what

I really hope there's more in the pipeline.

Utterly brilliant.

As an earlier post says, there's nothing particularly new or fresh about it, instead sticking to tried and tested stuff, but it does it so well.

The cast have really gelled well and Lee Boardman (and his facial expressions) is fantastic.

Love Ricky as Warren and the girls are good foils for the lads.

Nice to see Phil Cornwell as well, Good comedy actor.

Lee Boardman keeps advising twitter users to tweet ITV (@ITV) and tell them to comission more, so series 2 not guaranteed?

The ratings haven't been that great so far unfortunately and we all know that ITV relies heavily on ratings.

I think it's a fantastic show - there are so many comic moments and I love all the characters. As others have said, they interact really well as a group and they are very believable characters.

I'm in my fifties and I would be more likely to say train station rather than railway station.

Railway station is a bit of a mouthful and sounds posh to me. But then I am a Geordie!

Actually, around here, if asked, you would just say you were going to the station. No need to be more specific. What other kind of station would I be going to?

Don't say the bus station cos no one here would say that. We would just say we were going for the bus.

I think that GNO has got stronger during the series. I watched the last two episodes back to back this afternoon, and there were some great "laugh out loud" moments. The characters are all believeable, and likeable in their own way. Hope it makes it to a 2nd series.

Just bumping this up for tonight's episode. Have really been looking forward to this, hopefully it will be funny (Cath & Hodge go camping!) - I've had a pig of a week...

Anyone who puts eyelashes on their vehicle should have their license removed immediately.

Apparently ratings were up last week, so hopefully a sign that it's getting more popular.

Hope it gets re commissioned as this has been a very entertaining series although I can't quite understand the issue Daz has with Colleen's bedroom antics. She wouldn't need to ask me twice

it was probably affected by Big Brother. I didn't watch it until last week and I've really enjoyed it so far. I just hope I get chance to watch the earlier ones before they're taken off ITV Player. It would be a shame if it didn't get a recommission, drama comedies never explode straight away, they always take a series or two before finding their feet.
