Is there anything better than The Thick of It (2005 - 2012)?
Thanks for the reminder. I always forget to check out Alan Partridge. I only know him from The Day Today which I watched 10+ years ago.The Thick of it is fantastic, great writing and acting, speaking of another Armando Ianucci shows, i really think I'm Alan partridge and Knowing me Knowing You are also some of the best.
Anything with Partridge is great, just skip his most recent stuff, Mid Morning Matters is the last great Partridge project, and one of the best.Thanks for the reminder. I always forget to check out Alan Partridge. I only know him from The Day Today which I watched 10+ years ago.
I loved Boosh, but the gay little songs were often skin-crawling. Sometimes hilarious, but mostly I remember them being cringy.Another vote for Fawlty Towers and Peep Show.
I might get slammed for this but The Mighty Boosh. I know it became a hipster favourite but it was fucking brilliant nonetheless.
It had that distinctly British Monty Python, Blackadder esque surrealist humour mixed with a classic straight man/funny man dynamic.
I felt like the WWI season (Goes Forth?) Was weaker than the rest except Lord Flashheart but still good. And Hugh Laurie. In the thick of it was great, "he's gone glenntal" had me crying laughingI loved Boosh, but the gay little songs were often skin-crawling. Sometimes hilarious, but mostly I remember them being cringy.
Gotta throw another in for Blackadder, one of the few series that only got better as it went, and might have the best ending of any television show.
I loved this show, but it's something that would have been #1 for teenage me to watch.The Inbetweeners (juvenile, but if you haven't seen this yet, watch it now.)
