Maybe it's just me, but I thought the whole engagement ring business was ridiculous. And then, whatever her name is (I've forgotten it) swallowing the ring! Has she got a mental impediment!

Everyone of course will spring to her defence and say it's just a bit of fun, don't take it too seriously.

But I like programmes to have at least some semblance of reality about them. Who would do that? Who would swallow an engagement ring that was meant for someone else!

She needs a psychiatric evaluation

BTW, did anyone else spot that the United supporter's dad was played by the bloke who was Kenny Senior in Phoenix Nights?
Knew it was a 'face I know from somewhere' then again it's chocked full of 'faces'

I'm still liking the show, storylines need a bit of calming though.
Better than the camping one which went too far IMO.
Begsy's Mum's speech and load of randoms turning up at Mad Tony's was a bit too much, if still amusing.

Lots of good gags in there and it's got a fair bit of charm, so I can ignore the storyline to an extent.

Roll on series 2, I say.
When's the repeat?

"Steven James McDonald, come on down!'. One of my favourite lines from Corrie ever!
The scenes just before he got killed were really funny.

Even though it was rather silly, it still kept me amused throughout

Glad to see some positive posts about "Great night out", I've heard it had received a lot of bad reports. I've watched every episode and enjoyed it, light hearted TV to unwind after a busy week.

I also liked the fact it was based on four male friends, its usually female friends.

The last episode was highly enjoyable. The series has improved with every episode.

I liked the line, "I don't even know where the music is coming from"

Yes, this has been a great show for a Friday night. All the guys have been really good, some daft but not too daft story lines.

Great fun all round.

I concur, however they did kind of tie everything up at the end so who knows.

Just watched 'Great Night Out' can't stop thinking of how light and summery it was outside especially when the FA Cup 3rd Round is played on the first week of January.

To be honest I never thought about any storylines being 'tied up', just a bit of fun with the characters little dramas moving along.
I've learned not to question the storylines too much and just enjoy the jokes, that said, I hope they reign it back in the hoped for second series.

Heard an interview with Mal Young this week.
Producers, Writers try leaving things open ended in the hope that the commissioners might be swayed because personally they want to see what happens.
Nothing helps if the figures are really poor though.
Apparently the Americans film a couple of episodes ahead of air date, instead of getting the whole series in the can.
They'll kill a series literally mid-shot, by the time the cast is in the carpark the sets are being stripped and the timber recycled

It's nice that the female other halves aren't complete cardboard cut-out nagging harridans.
Although their not best mates like the chaps they get along and have their own thing going on.

Anyway I need to forget about it now, until/if a second series comes along.

Well, a very good finale and hope it comes back. Glad now I did not follow through with my intention to delete them without looking at them now! A great laugh.

I thought it was funny a couple of episodes back when one of them asked if they had trouble downstairs (ED) when (due to his poor workmanship hours before) he had flooded his mate's living room!

I really did not like the 'dead dog' story-line, it was not in the slightest bit funny.

Yes I agree, the female other halves are strong characters in there own right and its good they all get along yet don't over shadow the four men. I hope they do a second series, I don't think they tied up all the storylines and I preferred the mischief they got up more than the big storylines.

The dog wasn't dead. Even if it was its only pretend. Get a grip, its light hearted fun.

Yes it was, because the Dog wasn't dead, it's make believe.
Looked like a fake/stuffed Dog anyway.

You'll be glad to know there was a 'No animals were harmed...' message at the end.
I had to pause it, couldn't work out what it was.

Maybe you're just on a gee-up.

The idea of it leaving a suicide note was.

Cracking show, and those ladies were comical themselves, lots of scope for a new series, even one a bit longer......

It could be a funnier Cold Feet, with a slightly younger entourage....



Made me laugh out loud, lots of times throughout all the episodes......


Everyone who loved this show on here, should copy and paste some of the positive posts and write/email ITV (God knows what address though)

maybe try this lady (new to her job too)

Myfanwy Moore - ITV Commissioning Editor, Comedy.
http://greenlight.broadcastnow.co.uk...ng-editors/467



and Hat Trick Productions (ditto) who produced the show......

Helen Williams - executive producer comedy.....

http://www.hattrick.co.uk/about-us/c...bers/?mem_id=3


It got a steady 3 million (probably returning) viewers, which for a friday night is good going....

Would LOVE a new series, keeping up with strong writing....and the great cast.....

Lots of writing scope, holidays, wedding to see, the stag do..

I really enjoyed this series, hope it will come back soon.

I love Barmy Bev - who swallowed the ring - she's my fave, you just don't know what she's gonna do next!

Ricky T as the landlord can be hilarious with his comments like when the tall guy's - Glen? - hospital robe was blown open by a gust revealing his nether regions prompting the landlord to shout about getting the chipolatas out he'd forgotten about!
