Quote from: Petey Pate on July 21, 2022, 02:33:16 PMSeries 1 is one of the best comedy shows of all time and one of the finest parodies ever produced. Second series has its moments but nowhere near the same level.This seems to be the 'CaB consensus', so is there anyone out there who prefers series 2?

Quote from: Pimhole on July 21, 2022, 04:35:37 PMThe way they noticed the popularity of the "Thank you, ants... thants" line and utterly flogged it into the ground in the most unfunny way in S2 really pissed me off and is a huge black mark against S2, which was never as funny anyway. Like, it doesn't even make sense that Peter Packard would say something like that, he's a professional TV presenter, not some ageing voiceover guy going slowly potty. Gah.
Quote from: Brundle-Fly on July 21, 2022, 07:05:25 PMWas Nigel Lambert going slightly potty though? I took it as just common usage in the language of the odd LAY universe, hence Peter Packard saying it in LAY 2. Repeating this gag was hardly that intrusive in the show and certainly not worth getting pissed off about such a minor detail.
Quote from: Edgar Balloon IIII remember reading a quote from Robert Popper in which he said they loved the style of the first series and had a load of new scripts written in the same style, but that the BBC weren't interested in a ten minute show and they couldn't get it to work at thirty minutes. The first I remember hearing about the second series, they were going to have a study break in the middle, so maybe they were trying to combine two and pad it out to fill the thirty minute slot? Shame they've not taken it to a streaming service, where the runtime doesn't matter.

Quote from: madhair60 on July 21, 2022, 03:31:23 PMyeah I watched four minutes of the first one and didn't even smile, so chalking up to another nostalgia fave for creaking old CaB
Quote from: Edgar Balloon III on July 21, 2022, 02:18:15 PMSeries one felt like each each episode had thirty minutes worth of material crammed into a ten minute running time, but series two felt like barely ten minutes worth of material stretched out over thirty minutes. I remember the vegetable orchestra section being especially laugh free and seeming to drag on for a very long time.
