I also like Daisy Haggard, who was in one of my favourite ever comedy sketch series, Man Stroke Woman.
I'm also a fan of Man Stroke Woman.
Nicholas Burns was also in that.

Has Haggard had her teeth done since then. I think it may have been during or after appearing on the dual UK/US Episodes.
I remember them being a lot more wonkier.

I only checked this out due to this thread - thank you degsyhufc - and have to say I am torn.

Really enjoying the show, I like all the lead characters, but how annoyingly catchy are the songs!! All week I have found myself involuntarily singing 'No Survivors' and 'I don't like you......'

My work mates are finding me an absolute joy to be around I'm sure.

'No Survivors' has been popping into my head for the last week and a half as well.

The second episode remains my favourite so far. Thought it was a bit of a shame that episode 3 ended without addressing that both the women who like Andy had turned up to see him play. I wonder if he will end up dating one or both of them or ruin it before he even gets started. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the series.

No probs
Turning out to be a little gem of a show imo.

Pramface is coming back too, isn't it?

This is better than I expected based on the trailer and wasn't going to watch it based on that alone.
Yep, I also believe Some Girls, Impractical Jokers and Bad Education have all been picked up again

I had to listen to "When Will I be Famous," (my ear-worm cure) to get that out of my brain and now that you have metioned it again, all I can hear in my head is, "There's an impact crater in my heart....."

AAAAAAGGGGGGHHHH!!!!!!!

Well if it is any consolation I now have "When will I be famous" in my head. Thanks for that

I was thinking that too. I always found her attractive, but in a slightly odd kind of way. I think she probably has had some dental work but it's very subtle and very well done. Certainly unlike those ridiculous, over-whitened, tooth-perfect, American gnasher jobs.

BIB I met my favourite actor from Some Girls a few weeks back Holli (Natasha Jonas), I didn't bother choi oiking her and asking about Some Girls though
Impractical Jokers isn't bad either, even though it's a 'stolen' format.
Haven't watched much of Bad Education.

The work done reminds me of Russell Howard. More straightening work that bleeched whiter than white.

A different flow to last nights episode. I still enjoyed it and I think it's good that each episode isn't just the same old stuff.

I think that's part of the appeal no two episodes follow quite the same format

I really enjoyed No Survivors video on the red button but that left it going round in my head all the next day!

Yes definitely a different turn, enjoyed the kitchen scene where they all came out with truths and Bruce blurting out his wife is having an affair. The actor who plays Bruce was pretty good in "How not to live your life" too.

Another good episode last night although it's was kind of obvious how it was going to end up.


I disagree with Andy though. For me it would be Melodie, Shelley then Gwen

Yeah, me too. He's got it all wrong!

This is a decent little show. Not great, but easily watchable with some funny moments.

Literally happened upon this waking up this morning. I loved it! Now I have to watch the other episodes. Slam me if you like but I haven't watched a funny witty comedy on BBC3 since Monkey Dust or 15 Storeys High

15 Storeys High was excellent. Nice to know I'm not the only one who enjoyed that.
