Quote from: ASFTSN on June 10, 2021, 09:03:58 AMMark: (thinks) I've sent a threatening letter to the woman I love, I've kicked a dog to death...Jeremy: It's a good thing you had those boots on.
Quote from: Barry Admin on June 10, 2021, 05:44:20 PMThis is a fucking brilliant line, btw. It only just properly clicked with me hours later. I was just thinking about how Mark's line left so much to the imagination, in terms of how, why and where it happened, then I had the mental image of him trying to kick a dog to death with soft shoes.
Quote from: sevendaughters on June 10, 2021, 09:43:39 AMFor me that happens in series 5 with the episode where Mark is raped. It's a dark episode outside of this moment and feels terribly broken.
Quote from: Jockice on June 10, 2021, 08:31:23 AMI actually watched this very scene yesterday, while trying to distract myself from doing any work I clicked on a link called 'Mark and Jeremy's most embarrassing moments' or suchlike. For me the whole thing doesn't work not because it's horrible but because all Jeremy had to do before getting on the barge with it was claim that the bag was full of rubbish and put it into a bin. No further questions would have been asked. I know comedy often stretches the bounds of normality, but I think even Trigger or Frank Spencer would have done that.

Quote from: Psybro on June 14, 2021, 01:06:55 PMYeah just as bad for me was how beastly Jez is to his mum in that episode, like Simon from the Inbetweeners but it doesn't seem to fit Jez's usual methods of being a shitty person.

Quote from: Antiseptic Poetry on June 14, 2021, 04:59:20 PMAs a former dog owner, I hated that episode and have never re-watched it. Killing and eating someone's beloved pet goes beyond shock humour - it just isn't funny to me. Also as others have said, it made no sense - clearly, they came up with the 'dog eating' concept first then wrote backwards from there.
Quote from: Noodle Lizard on June 14, 2021, 09:59:17 PMI still can't watch the episode where Gerard dies, it's fucking terrible.
Quote from: Psybro on June 14, 2021, 10:19:54 PMEven that has the bit with Mark torturing Jez into confession via Indian takeaway, which had me rolling.
