Lil Dicky series "Dave"
« on: May 11, 2020, 07:23:46 AM »
Available now on iPlayer. Has it been discussed yet?

edit:It's really good. Not over the top funny like his music videos (which are brilliant), but rather it goes the more naturalistic route and tells a straightforward autobiographical story.

I liked this piece of racial humour (so to speak):
"Smoke weed? ah no thank you. ....I smoke. I treat it like a glass of wine at the end of the day. If I smoke this early I feel like a total waste of my life"

It started on 'real' TV last night,either Beeb 2 or Beeb 4. Gave it ten minutes,which was more than it deserved, but I am sure some will like it.

There was small discussion of it here https://www.cookdandbombd.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=78957.0

I seemed to be one of the only people that properly loved it. One of the best new shows I've seen in a while. If you can get over what appears to be sophomoric humour, there's a lot more to it. Some intense and devastating scenes sprinkled throughout as well. The first 10 or so minutes of the finale is absolutely bonkers. Episodes 3, 7, 9 & 10 are the highlights I'd say.

Just watched 3. Devastatingly frank about sex in a way that few British comedies would dare to be.

Well that was awesome. Just binge watched the whole thing and was happy to hear (breaking news) that the second series has been commissioned off the back of record ratings for the original broadcaster: https://deadline.com/2020/05/dave-renewed-season-2-fxx-fx-networks-highest-ranked-comedy-series-ever-1202931218/

Excellent news! I hope he releases the ‘Jail’ song too.

I finished off the last few episodes after stalling there are some great bits in there. Good storylines in there amongst the silliness too.

Excellent news! I hope he releases the %u2018Jail%u2019 song too.

I agree that this was a highlight.

Of course, as a single release, it suffers from the problem that there is a mythical verse (ostensibly merely not broadcast) which completely vindicates Dave against the protests of any given critic.

By the way, don't you just love that cocky producer character? I'd love to see more of him and Dave together. They have a great bremistry.

Well, they show a bit of it where he bites the guy's dick off, so it seemed as though it was just gonna get sillier. I suppose the song was purposefully incomplete though.

Really don't care for Lil Dicky and his face but I've heard decent things from other people who don't like Lil Dicky

Also enjoying this. The supporting cast are excellent. The GaTa episode was one of the best portrayals of Mental illness I've seen on television.

Started watching this tonight based on the recommendations in this thread. I was skeptical but really enjoyed it. Episode 5 was a belter.
