"At Christmas I no more desire a rose Than wish a snow in May's new-fangled mirth; But like of each thing that in season grows."

Quote from: MojoJojo on September 20, 2021, 11:07:49 AMI enjoyed the David Mitchell one, but it did show him up as a sketch actor compared to the others.
Quote from: Small Man Big Horse on September 19, 2021, 07:16:32 PMI did have concerns it was heading in to Gervais territory initially but the direction it took was both funny and very sweet natured.
Quote from: rue the polywhirl on September 29, 2021, 08:12:48 PMI only caught the first two episodes of this and then I forgot about the rest. First one was stronger with the better occasionally amusing guest turn from HBC. Second one with David Mitchell was very tiresome and Mitchell-by-numbers. Would be nice if he had an extra self-reflective moment mid-performance and went 'hey this same angry rant style that I use in all my panel shows and sitcom appearances is well stale, maybe I should give it a rest or mix it up a little'. Guess you could say I didn't 'clean up' with this series!
Quote from: cyanidemint on October 10, 2021, 02:16:20 AMI thought that one was spoiled by direct translations from German to English. A lot of the jokes didn't really work.Whoever wrote the script didn't do a very good job.
Quote from: greencalx on October 10, 2021, 10:39:06 AMI was more bothered by the fact that his outfit and company logo was different in The Aristocrat. Perhaps this was originally a pilot?

Quote from: neveragain on October 10, 2021, 01:21:35 PMFor some reason, I flicked through all the episode descriptions of the original German series on IMDB and the only episode of Greg's series with an entirely new plot was... that influencer one. Take from that what you will.There were some intriguing German plots: Spoiler alertone with a ghost, one in which the cleaner enters the mind of a comatose patient and the last episode seems to be set in the afterlife.[close]
Quote from: BeardFaceMan on October 10, 2021, 02:34:40 PMThe influencer was by far the worst episode, bordering on unwatchable. It very much felt like an old person's view of what influences are like (and an excuse for Greg in indulge in a load of 80s stuff.)
