Oh wow, each season is only 6 episodes long?

That's odd, but at least it's a lot less chance for filler.

Welcome to Great Britain!

Our comedies are 6-8 episodes long, our dramas 8-13 episodes, and if it lasts for more than 14 episodes a series it's probably witchcraft. Or a reality show. Preferably witchcraft.

Yeah, I've found that British comedy is usually alot more conservative then American Comedy. Fawlty Towers, for example, only ran for 12 episodes and despite a huge following, the writers didn't want to continue with it incase they ran it into the ground.

Almost done with season 2. Fantastic series. I find the girl kind of attractive, oddly enough.

Watched an episode thanks to this thread.  It just happened to be the first one I stumbled on, so I can't tell you what season, etc.  But it was the one where the head guy (I'm assuming president or CEO) finds his grandfather's service revolver in teh desk and accidentally shoots himself in the leg.  Anyhow, after watching one episode, I have a couple of comments:

1.  So, in reality, that isn't actually a picture of AcidRainLite in his avatar.  Wow.  And after all this time, I thought that's who that was.  At least now the sudden usage of pictures of that guy as other people's avatars seems slightly less weird.
2.  It really seemed lame in the beginning, but won me over by the end of it.  I wouldn't consider it amazing, but definitely good.  I'll likely be watching the other episodes soon.

Aye. I'd agree with that. It's a really smart and horrendously funny show disguised as a tacky one. Took me a few weeks to give it a shot when it was first advertised, I thought it looked fairly corny. But it's actually pretty uproariously funny.

Watch the first two seasons (they're the best, in my opinion). The episode you watched is from the third season.

Okay, saw a second episode last night and I have to say, this is a really funny show.  There are a few full episodes on YouTube, but I'm sure they must exist somewhere organized by season, right?  I want to start at the beginning and watch them all.

Oh, and the episode I saw last night was the one where Jen broke up with the guy she was dating because he "looked like a magician," and Moss and the Irish guy got hooked up with the bank robber guys when they were masquerading as "real men" with their football talk.  Hilarious episode.

I love the one where they go to the Gay musical. I believe it's called "The Work Outing".

The Countdown thing was pretty silly, and I didn't care for it. The subplot with Roy being a window cleaner is fantastic though.

Although the window cleaner thing was great too, especially when he was on the thing going down the building

After seeing how much everyone on this board likes this show and watching some short clips on Youtube, I decided to watch the first episode. I loved it. I was laughing my balls off throughout the whole thing, my favorite parts being when the boss was like "You think this is a picture of my family, but it's actually a picture of the A Team," and when Moss offered to plug in Jen's phone and computer when she pretends to be using them. And the pictures of Moss and Roy with the prostitutes at the very end. :rollin

About to watch the 2nd episode now. I just wanted to thank the crazy Europeans here on DTF for introducing me to this show.
Gadough isn't Hitler. He's much, much worse.

I just saw the part where Moss woke up after fixing the boss's pants and the Windows startup theme plays as his eyes open.

I've never laughed so hard at a TV show before. :rollin :rollin :rollin
