Quote from: dead-ced-dead on October 20, 2021, 10:01:52 PMSincere if contrived sums up a lot of Merchant's solo writing. Fighting With My Family is that completely. He's more Hollywood-ized than Gervais (he went there as quickly as his legs could carry him). And while that leads to moments of contrivances in his work, it also means proper character arcs, three act structures and proper plotting, which is more than I can say for After Life or Derek.His sweetness and sincerity (usually) makes up for the contrivances.

Quote from: Rolf Lundgren on October 20, 2021, 10:16:24 PMSame here. And baffled as to why he doesn't have a line in the trailer. Has big Hollywood star appearing as a regular in a British sitcom been done before? Closest I can think in recent years is Cuckoo and that depends on your definition.

Quote from: Shit Good Nose on October 21, 2021, 06:41:37 PMhave heard that The Outlaws will similarly be 75% drama and 25% comedy (can you confirm Ballad?).

Quote from: Shit Good Nose on October 21, 2021, 06:41:37 PMI really really disliked Fighting With My Family (in a parralell universe there's a decent out-and-out comedy about Nick Frost running a low-rent north of England wrestling club)
Quote from: Mobius on October 22, 2021, 10:11:53 PMI'm probably going to sound like some comedy simpleton or knuckle dragger, but I wish more things would just be comedy and not comedy drama.
Quote from: neveragain on October 24, 2021, 06:18:09 PMHow someone can say Kate "Eeh am a racist eeh now I'm not" & Koji was better written than Feel Good fair boggles the mind. Even though the former does come from the pen of two sitcom veterans, it was still an uncomfortable mess.
