Absolutely hilarious, with the racist immigration officer and the gay steward, but why oh why won't Walliams and Lucas commit to a new series. This was the funniest show on BBC One a couple of years ago and pairing it with Mrs Brown's Boys, the greatest sitcom for years, would be brilliant.

What I do remember is the long-running DS thread about the series in which some people stated that the characters were racist stereotypes, Walliam and Lucas were racists for creating the characters and implied that anyone who liked the series was a closet racist themselves

Oh the good old PC brigade, who have no sense of humour, unless it's some alternative comedian ranting abuse about the Tories. Actually this sent up racism and stereotypes.

I agree. Great series, underrated. I loved it and cant wait for a second series. I was under the impression that a new series is happening soon...? Hope thats the case

Personally, I thought it was crap and am glad they won't commit to a new series.

Each to their own, it was a show you either loved or hated.

Sadly no. Apparently Matt Lucas doesn't want to.

Such a shame, excellent show.
Can't get on a plane now without wishing the purser would come up and offer me a complimentary browse of the Daily Mail

Maybe, like Little Britain, they maybe thought if they kept making it, then the quality could go down.
A repeat would be nice.

I think they show repeats on BBC3 from time to time.

i think it's ridiculous they haven't done another. It's obviously Lucas' fault. They owe it to fans of the show to do at least one more series.
Very silly imo.

I saw Come Fly With Me and all of the above applies though I think the main problem was that it wasn't funny enough for me to bother tuning in.

I remember that thread, it was ridiculous. I love Come Fly With Me, it's just a very funny comedy with no offence intended to anyone. How anyone can take offence to it is beyond me.
I love the two oriental girls singing their Martin Clunes song, brilliant..

Would you care to explain how the quality could possibly go down?

Maybe they should just repeat it - would anyone know the difference? After all, they managed to run virtually the same sketches every week, and nobody complained.

On the other hand, the thread about the programme, as with the threads about 'derek' and 'life's too short', was absolutely hilarious.

They have fallen out so unlikely to return. It was certainly better than the crap like Pramface.
