What a cunty thing to say.

I’m glad Moran made you miss your train.

Didn't say it hun, typed it.

Anyway, did anyone else as a child utterly fail to understand how program scheduling worked and took the hump against a show that you percieved to be taking the place of your favourite thing?

I refused to watch the first series of The Fast Show as I held them personally responsible for the first series of Shooting Stars ending.

Shooting Stars started after The Fast Show

Yep, first series of   The Fast Show was September 1994, Shooting Stars followed a year later.

Must have been a repeat then. All I know is I had gotten used to watching Shooting Stars over the course of six weeks which at the time might as well have been an eternity. Then it finished its run and The Fast Show took over its Friday night night slot in what my 13 year old mind assumed to be some kind of military coup.

Perhaps the second series if it was a year after?

Second series was Feb. 1996, I remember it as part of a jolly good line up of Friday Night Comedy, with Father Ted and Fist Of Fun, so yeah, you were watching a repeat.
The 2nd series of The Fast Show was easily the worst one, btw.

Ah well, arbitrary vindication.

It's possible im getting mixed up though, just occured to me it might have been red dwarf, holds a similarly revelatory but less enduring mystique for me. I note it was also airing a series in 1994.

Either way I held a completely unfair grudge against the Fast Show for a very stupid reason.

I'm just imagining Povidone driving his car like that Mark Williams " being angry at perfectly normal things" chatracter driving down the street, venting his spleen and shouting enraged things about, indeed, The Fast Show, turning a lovely shade of as- then- unacknowledged as such gammon.

Me and my mate used to do a great approximation of this sketch while propping up the bar back in the day because we're a pair of unfunny cunts.

Maybe he’d been drinking lots of water

Very good point.

Paul Shearer?

Oh right, I barely even remember him being in it. Haven't watched it in at least ten years though.
