    Gareth's line where he says he was planing on getting off with the new girl and that he'd seen her first (with THAT gesture) was hilarious.

    Definitely up to the first series standard so far.

    Typical. Hundreds of channels... two shows that I want to see a week... both are on at the same time.

    I can't miss an ep of Six Feet Under. Anyone know of any planned Office repeats?

    Both The Office and Six Feet Under get repeated later in the week, The Office on BBC Choice, Thursday 9.30pm and Six Feet Under on 'Second Chance Sunday' - E4

    Absolutely Ace !! Just can't believe how good it was. Best bit for me was Brent's comments about not taking the p!$$ out of an old bloke for a having a shrivelled hand and then Gareth, in front of everything else, mentioned Brent's comments about him having a "W***ker's Claw !!!" BAFTA winners, for sure, i'd nominate them for the Oscars!

    Thanks juboy. I'm a little worried about SFU's repeat being edited, so I'll pick up The Office on Thursdays. :)

    I have a machine called a video recorder. It can be used to record TV shows onto tape to be watched later. You can even watch it more than once. Anyone else got one?

    Yeah, but mine is unable to program itself to record shows that I've forgotten about/didn't know were on ;)

    Sky + is the answer. Six feet under records on it's own every week along with The West Wing. My wife was out until almost the end of The Office, so that was paused 'til she came in - I don't think I could watch Brent on my own without damaging something. Ma na ma na.

    I've given up trying to watch/record ALL the TV I'd like to see, there's just not enough time :)

    In some ways it make sense to wait for the really good shows to come out on DVD, at least you're sure of watching them in order and complete (unless it's the R2 '24' of course...). Trouble is, you don't get the option to chat about shows with your mates if you do it that way. Although most of my mates generally think what I talk about is 6 month old crap anyway, so maybe I'd get away with it.

    Lucky I checked the BBC Choice listings for tomorrow, Liquid News has a half hour special with Gene Simmons from Kiss. Now that would have p*ssed me off if I'd missed it :)

    It's probably been covered, but a video recorder doesn't let me tape two things at the same time. (my dilemna) I need Sky+, or a second digibox. (already got 2 VCRs) I've got no antennae to speak of, so that's why my only TV signal comes from my Sky dish.

    Although funny in parts, on the whole I find myself cringing with embarrassement and turning away from the TV everytime the characters David Brent and that 'skinny lad' open their mouths.

    They're a bit OTT to say the least.

    I might start a riot here, but after now having seen half of the second series, I honestly do feel it's of an even higher class than the first.

    Not by a wide margin but mainly because it's more consistently funny. Watching the episode just gone (3) I actually looked at my watch at 10:19 and couldn't believe there was still 10 minutes of it left... they pack more humour and genuine laughs in to one 30 minute slot than you see on BBC1 and BBC2 combined throughout the rest of the entire week.

    Juboy I'm going to have to agree with you, this second series is consistently brilliant and better than the last series. I don't think it's had a stand out 'event' episode yet tho like the first series but it is funnier on the whole.
    This week's episode was fantastic... Gareth's come-on to the birthday girl (i'll do you from behind, quick in and out, no strings!) and Brent's Corr's outburst. I was laughing my tits off.

    You make it sound like it pains you :)

    And the re-appearance of 'Fincheyyy!' :D

    When Brent found out Neil had also been asked to do the training courses but turned it down... classic 'You can't say yes now, that'd show weakness'.

    :D Course not, we seem to have very similar points of view.

    Did you catch the bit at the end, Finch in the car park with the birthday girl "That's it I'm nearly there!" Sheer brilliance.

    Yeah, those ending 5 second snippets are brilliant.

    Only just realised that the bird he was 'with' is also in Human Traffic.

    I was weeping with laughter at one point when he brought out that d1ldo and said "Its not hers, I've asked her and I believe her"

    Another classic

    Tim :- "Garath, did you see Gaylords say no last night?"
    Garath :- "No"

    Pure genius.
