    Just bought the fantastic "The Day Today" - watched some of it last night - and i have to say its even funnier now than it was ten years ago - it looks so much like sky news!!

    if you haven't seen it before and you like off the wall comedy (i.e something other than ident-i-kit american sitcoms - chance your £16 and prepare to cry with laughter.

    If there is a funnier news spoof than "bomb dogs" then i want to see it. in these days of "Terror" - "bomb dogs" is just so so darkly funny.


    and it has some of the best menus i've ever seen

    I remember channel surfing when this was on originally and the first thing I saw was the Back Street Dentist feature and it really shocked me until I found out what the show really was. Classic Tv

    Bomb dogs is the story that always comes to mind when reminded of The Day Today, I can remember it sparked quite a conversation at school the next day!

    Very funny

    Fur Q spoof rap song 'Uzi Lover' to the tune of the Phil Collins easy lover makes me cry with laughter every time.

    What about farmer Chester Johnson having a heart attack in his helicopter and narrowly avoiding an old woman up a stick in a nearby field - Genius

    I've still got these on VHS. Anyone know if they are worth buying again for the extras on the DVD?

    the more i watch the funnier it gets - Calaterley Sisters "Businews" makes as much sense to me as the real money news.

    Barbra Wintergreen makes me cry shes so funny.

    GENIUS!!!!
