Watched the second episode last night. Not as good as the first but still entertaining.

I don't know why, but it makes me smile! Some of it's too quick for one viewing, I had to rewind the "I've got another one to add to the list - brittle bone" bit before I got it!

PS, I assume it was the actual cast of Hollyoaks...

When monkeys are used in adverts (such as PG Tips), peanut butter is put on the roof of their mouths to make them move their mouths for the voice actors.

and that's how they make Hollyoaks.

My Daughter watched the first episode and ran to me to show me a clip. I was most disheartened to hear my beloved 1980s pin-up's name used as a swear word. 'Morten Harket' indeed!! Daughter won't stop saying it now LOL!! (A devoted A-Ha fan for nearly 25 years).

Otherwise, Mongrels is OK, some good gags.

What i think is a huge redeeming feature of it is that at the end of the day, the writers haven't forgotten that they're all animals - and that they all have those little characteristics that each of those particular animals have - i find them the most fun.

I also really love Vince. I think the censorship of his swearing makes it all the more funnier.

Never saw the first, but I have to say I enjoyed the second episode.

I loved the 'runt fox', esp the pathetically weak voice.

If you like Mongrels checkout Meet The Feebles, an early Peter Jackson film.

I do like BBC Three comedy, especially things like Monkey Dust, Nighty Night, Summer Heights High, but I thought this lacked somewhat. It was terrible but it didn't work for me.

Summer Heights High is hilarious (but not an original BBC, it's an ABC production) and I agree, Mongrels just seems a little lacking.

I came to say the same thing. The best by far tonight.

Edit: Amy Winehouse gag was brilliant.

Channel four was looking for people at entry level the other month for some intern positions and I have found that normally tv jobs ask the strangest of questions on their applications for someone who initially they want to do some filing, fetching and making tea. I have had to create a tv show, write a critique of 2 shows in less than 500 words, suggest where researchers should source their information and why they should look in these particular sites. Lazy lazy production companies
Channel 4 dont make shows, you'll never get into TV production from interning there. Unless u want to work in scheduling or something.

I thougt Mongrels was very good. The puppets look ace, some of the writing is clever and funny, the characters seem to be developing well. The shows gone down very well on the internet. There are some sketches and characters that tend to drag on or not hit the right spot but its the first series so they need to see what works and what doesnt.

I think Vince and Nelson are best. They oughta just make the show around them.

I didn't really know anything about this until a mate recommended it to me and i bloody love it .. watched the first two on iplayer and immediately series linked it.

so out of order but so funny

loved the line "so why did the chicken cross the road ?. Turns out she was a casual racist"

Agreed! Nelson is simply adorable, I hope they produce a range of soft toys based on the series, they totally have to do that!
