Although he evidently thinks he's a lot more endearing than he actually is.

I did feel myself flagging a bit whenever he started shouting or it became apparent he was about to, but the rest of the time he was alright.

Stuart Heritage likes it so obviously I've just realised it's actually rubbish now.

Edit; Wow, some (actually most) of the BTL comments there perfectly illustrate the ancient truth about how haranguing someone to watch something is a sure-fire way to make them loathe it. I actually think Heritage must secretly hate the show really and did this on purpose to bask in the inevitable barrage of abuse of it he's provoked, which means it's OK to like it again now, phew!

I love this show. It's the first thing I've seen in a long time that really nails the absurd without just being "lol random"

And he doesn't shout in that many sketches so I'm not sure where that's coming from.

Was made aware of his episode of The Characters on here recently and I thought it was pretty inspired. The sketch about the Dean Martin type swanning through the restaurant was fuckin hilarious.

The horse one and the Garfield one were the best. Some of the sketches go on a bit long and he does shout a lot but there is a lot of invention in there and some great co/guest stars

I loved the door one from the first episode and the gift receipt/toilet washing hands one.

The man on the plane was good too as was choking guy and the nachos on the date.

I (thought I) watched the whole thing but I don't remember a termite sketch!

Anyway, on the whole I loved this and even when the premise is a bit ropey, as in the hotdog car, they pull it out of the fire through sheer will of force, like the hotdog guy trying to take the moral high-ground by saying people don't even watch porn on computers but use phones. I hated that sketch until that point.

Guys. I excitedly gave this a go based on recommendation from here, friends and Nathan Fielder and I think it is absolute pile of awful toss. Watched it with my girlfriend having told her that it was meant to be "laugh out loud funny" and we just looked at each other in confusion. (IMHO) It is fucking dreadful. It's like Jon Glazer's comedy if Jon Glazer had zero charm or personality. Soz.

I just returned to it after watching the first two a while ago - the dip in quality from an already low bar is huge.

The instagram one really tickled me, Will Forte is always good to watch and I was somewhat mesmerised by the old hispanic(?) guy in the focus group sketch. All these sketches are up on Youtube and, having watched a few episodes and being underwhelmed, probably are as good as it gets for my tastes.

Yeah I enjoyed the focus group one.

Maybe he didn't shout in the majority of the sketches but my abiding memory of the series is him doing exasperated shouting. Maybe that's just confirmation bias.

Reminded me very much of Limmy at times. Partly because of the sometimes endearingly shit supporting actors. The sketch where everyone is sharing funny videos and he can't think of anything brought the 'gonna take a little time' Limmy sketch to mind.

I haven't got Netflix so I looked at some sketches on Youtube. Saw where the Instagram one was going to go fairly early, and it didn't really go anywhere after that. I was liking the focus group one until it went into the final bit where they were laughing at that guy and doing fucking dabs and the water bottle flip and that, at which point it lost me. I'm leaning towards the "pile of toss" camp here at the moment.

Nothing lives up to the baby talent show sketch in my opinion which I had to watch twice because I enjoyed it so much, although the nachos one is close. I’d say across the whole series there’s probably about one show’s worth of really funny sketches and the rest are just either confusing or bad.

It's one of the first sketches in the first episode, the spoof advert for pest control firm, so no actual termites in it.

I have watched Baby of the Year at least 5 times so far, and it makes me laugh more every time. This might be partly due to being a new father who has recently discovered just how funny a gormless baby face can be, but I also just love the way that sketch keeps zigging and zagging. That's a strength that quite a few of them have, actually - rather than just being one premise stretched out over a couple of minutes they keep building and then swerving in unexpected directions.

It's certainly not a perfect series by any means, but there's a giddy energy to it that sets it apart from pretty much any other sketch show I've seen in recent years.

Baby talent show was amazing. Nachos pretty good. The birthday present receipt one was excellent. Some gems amongst the horseshit.

I think icehaven's talking about the Mitch Bryant lawyer commercial sketch. The two guys who turn up and cause him such grief were supposed to be repairing termite damage in his garage.

Yep that's the one, I've just misremembered it if the spoof ad was actually for a lawyer, but it has the termite controllers who wreck the toilet.

This was one of the more frustrating watches for me in a while because it was such a mixed bag. Honk if You're Horny, loaded nachos, Turbo Time  and especially that first door sketch all had me creasing up. Pretty much all of the rest made me wish I was watching Limmy or Tim & Eric. The main bloke's facial expressions and general comedic manner are great, but the writing's all over the feckin shop.
