Yeah I wonder. Wasn't his mother British in the previous season? Maybe that's how he's aware of it (although from his accent in "Time for a big art attack!" it doesn't seem like he spent any time in the UK)

I don't know why I don't just look things up before posting: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Art_Attack#International_broadcast

The Art Attack reference completely took me by surprise too, as I assumed it was just a British thing. But many Canadians in that FB group mentioned how it aired in Canada, and they were surprised it was known outside of their country!

anyone hook me up with the web episodes?

When I get home (possibly tomorrow) I'll try and share the Google Drive thing I've saved with all the web episodes on. There's 12 (I think) and they're all about 10 minutes long.

Now, can anyone help with getting episode 3 of series 2? The Facebook group have gone all legit by buying Canadian iTunes vouchers and setting up Canadian iTunes. Loosers.

Please do help. I really want to see that webseries

That opening had me crying. With this show I'm either laughing harder than any other comedy series has made me, or I'm just smiling at how lovely the interactions are and all the brilliant little unexpected reactions from the public. Nice to hear some Boards of Canada too.

Favourite episode of this series so far. Lovely stuff, and the bit with the crowd hounding Matt for his chips was hilarious. Someone posted this in the FB group, looks like Matt became known as "chipman" last year during that 420 festival: https://imgur.com/0lI8NNM

The one with the Goldeneye tournament has been my favourite so far this series. The B-Day one just ended strangely. Maybe it was a reference I wasn't getting?

Just a Breaking Bad reference with Matt being really melodramatic about keeping their "ban" a secret.

I just had a big catch up watch from episode 2 onwards. The Mrs Doubtfire episode seemed like a Mrs Misfire, (tried too hard to go for the heart but ultimately didn't hit hard enough) and the GoldenEye tournament one was good but again a little bit weak (with too much emphasis on established videogames/drugs tropes that fell kind of short here, not to mention the predictable Rival1/Rivoli bit). There didn't seem to be any amazing reveals or twists that made the first season so incredible and head-scratching.

The ongoing saga of hacking into/under the Rivoli in the recent two episodes has been a lot more enjoyable and I'm hoping the rest of the season carries on more of an elaborate plot arc that keeps it interesting. I did love the 4/20 episode though, and the rotten banana bit with the closing shutter behind Jay was great. Also, "This is a bad day for the bird". Jay is freakin adorable.

Was desperate to introduce the girlfriend to this, particularly to let her see The Buffet, so we watched episode 1 as an intro, then The Buffet. For me, this might be the best 20 mins of TV I've seen, legit. Touches my heartstrings. She liked it a lot too. Love this show. I'll get cracking on the new season.

Been firing through this the past couple of days. Always gave it a wide-berth because the title makes it sound like it'll be total shite.

imitationleather official verdict: Very funny. Would bang.

it is all available on the pirates bay in high quality

So anyone else sharing my above thoughts that the second and third episodes weren't that great? Or is that just me?

I will concede though, the Fresh Prince/Jazzy Jeff bit at the end of the GoldenEye episode was fucking excellent.

All of this series hasn't had the same manic everything happening at once quality that the first series had. Apart from the Goldeneye episode.

I'm kind of the opposite. I was a bit disappointed at first in The Book, but enjoyed The Buddy and The Boost more. It definitely seems like they're trying to fit more set narrative elements in per episode and relying less on the interacting with the public, the references etc. I'll definitely be going through all episodes again once the season's over as I reckon there will be other things I pick up on.

Do you reckon the hacker in The Banned was either a cast member or in on it at all? He was a fascinating chap!

I reckon he was in on it, to an extent.

By the way, no episode this week. Back next Friday.

Back again! This time it's the intended first episode of series 2. Odd for them to place it in between the banned stuff but still, really brilliantly funny and clever as always.
