    Anyone see this?

    It's like a cross between Scrubs, Spaced and something else I haven't worked out yet.

    Very surreal but quite entertaining.

    I quite liked it which is unusual for me as i generally prefer american comedies but this was good.

    Didn't like it myself, the constant fast forwarding got irritating after a while, and I switched off after 20 minutes.

    Found it to be very funny indeed.

    High quality stuff.

    Caught me by surprise and am looking forward to the next one. Genius.

    I really enjoyed it.

    It's a bit strange though, its supposedly a sit-com, with no real storyline so ends up being a series of sketches, in the vain of smack the pony (has some of the girls from that in it, and writing I think).

    Its also strange as it was an hour long, so I don't know how it managed to hold attention.

    Well worth watching though, hopefully, more story lines will come out later.

    I thought he was the weakest character and he really started to annoy me after a few minutes of his stammering and stuttering.

    That'll be Mark Heap, a much underrated comic actor IMO.

    I thought the programme was excellent - reminded me of Spaced / Jam / Big Train / Black Books and Scrubs. Looking forward to the DVD boxset already :D

    I'm amazed I liked it. I can't stand The Office and assumed it was going to be another one of these new comedies. At first I thought the fast forward bits would make me turn off, but I got used to it and the humour won the day for me. Noticed a couple of familiar faces - Helen Brittas and Dan from an episode of Alan Partridge (the one with the kitchen warehouse)
    It gets a big thumbs up from me :thumbsup:

    Oh how I laughed when he was doing his spontaneous passion thing hopping around the room in his underpants, playing his recorder oblivious to the bemused lady in his room - Top drawer :D

    The staff therapist/counsellor (the Scottish woman) makes me laugh.

    In an episode a few weeks ago a Doctor went to see her for counselling.

    Doctor: I've been feeling depressed.
    Counsellor: Well don't hesitate to come and see me if you have any other problems.
    :rotfl:

    The manic dancing to the ringtone was fairly amusing too.

    I like mark heap, loved him in space he was just as manic as the artist in that. Did you see that scotish bird where she followed the Dr in to the room with all the uniforms, and she had a go at him?

    This program could soon be achieving cult status if it carries on like this :thumbsup:

    Same here I watched it and found nothing to laugh about, it just seemed like people doing very juvanile things.

    Well for me Mark Heap is a new hero, his performance as Dr Alan Statham has me in stitches every time he appears. I really do hope there will be a DVD of this soon - can't wait to see the outtakes :)
