Quote from: who cares on September 02, 2021, 09:42:03 AMThis probably has at least one thread, but why not a new one? I'm going to rewatch the whole thing soon with my wife, who hasn't seen it. Maybe do spoilers in case people are watching for the first time. I don't know how many times I've watched Blue Rat... maybe 10? It became a go-to if I was feeling down. It's my favourite episode, with Pool Kids a close second. There's whole puffin chunks of dialogue I could recite. I often want to repeat lines from the show- ie, can't hear the word 'Lisbon' without wanting to say in a gruff Northern tone, "it's the capital city o' Portugal".

Quote from: Claude the Racecar Driving Rockstar Super Sleuth on September 02, 2021, 04:50:11 PMVince and Errol are great lead characters, but I think the real masterstroke of the show was the scope the setting gave for side characters. It's like a hybrid of sitcom and sketch show. The League of Gentlemen is the only thing I can think of (off the top of my head) doing something similar."I warned you once, I warned you twice, I warned you trice!That's the last time you'll swing that whistle, you big, swinging, whistley wanker."

Quote from: Fr.Bigley on September 03, 2021, 03:23:43 PMMy favourite bit is when they go get the pigeon lady her shit back and vince is making the small talk with the old lad in the hall, it's classic Sean, the banality of it all.."How old are you?""71""When did you husband die?""1997""How many grandkids have you got?""Seven"What was the hardest thing to get in the war""Bananas""Right that's enough smalltalk"*skips up the stairs*Absolutely brilliant.
