so they have this show following entourage now. awful. i thought it might be decent so i watched it, but i could barely make it through three skits. not funny is one thing, not funny with a laugh track is another.

I liked the first series of Little Britain, which actually had some wit in it, but after that they gave up wit in favour of catch phrases and attempts to shock people.

I heard they were making a US series...

But the original version is great. One of my favourites.

they're amazing when used out of context, though

like when a plug is pulled on a person in a vegetative state

It's Little Britain. It's not meant to be funny. At least it's keeping in tradition with the British version.

Yeah, I absolutely don't 'get' that show at all. I tried to play it as one of those 'deliberately bad' things but even watching it like that, it was brain damaging.

Uuuummmmmmm...

With so many people telling me it was brilliant I wanted to try and give it a fair shot, but sheesh, talk about a load of unwiped ass.

Uuuummmmmmm...

Shouldn't they call it something else in the USA version or am I lost on their approach ? unsure.gif

Deliberately bad is so 90's.
Everybody's bragging and drinking that wine
I can tell the Queen of Diamonds by the way she shine
Come to Daddy on an inside straight
I got no chance of losing this time
No, I got no chance of losing this time
