Quote from: The Mollusk on October 10, 2023, 09:22:27 PMI maintain that Thomas' delivery of "Lucky Fanny, to be touched up by those hands" when Alison is restoring the portrait is the best line of the entire show.

Quote from: Des Wigwam on October 09, 2023, 10:00:56 PMI've binged all 40 episodes of the US version over a few months - well, mostly had it on in the background - and was struck by how much better this is. Everything is given so much space and has confidence in itself. I think it was the quiz show episode where that really stood out. Another thing that stood out is how many plot points are shared between this series and the US one - but I think some or all of the team consult on it.
Quote from: markburgle on October 13, 2023, 10:33:14 PMI really loved the 1st series of Ghosts US, seemed to play with the format in a great way and have a lot of touching moments but the 2nd seems quite shallow and zingy for the most part.

Quote from: ajsmith2 on October 16, 2023, 03:08:50 PMreally? I thought the complete opposite. The 1st series was like a naff pale shadow of the UK one IMO, whereas by the second season they'd found their feet a lot more, the characters became a lot more likeable and deep and best of all they stopped giving the Captain lines like 'well I spent much of my time in the army under a lot of men woops pardon' like in a 55 year old Carry On script.
Quote from: Magnum Valentino on October 24, 2023, 10:49:03 AMSimon Farnaby is on RHLSTP's 'Book Club' episode this week to discuss it. Haven't listened to it though. In fact, I've never seen Farnaby out of character and probably don't want to. It's too hard to imagine that he's a real person, he's such an odd performer.

Quote from: neveragain on October 24, 2023, 12:42:03 PMY'see, I like a sitcom that 'coasts' a bit. On top of the comfort of a static situation, I want to spend enough time with the characters that I can't remember everything they got up to. Five series and however many specials is the right number for me

That's an audible credit spent right there.https://on.soundcloud.com/PXDz8qEY5wjd6ScJ7
Quote from: ishantbekeepingit on October 11, 2023, 04:53:35 PMMy favourite part of that is that some of the clip art has the little Google Images resolution overlay in the bottom-right corner. Mike's technical inability is so great that he's just taken a screenshot and cropped them into the slideshow.Big image[close]
