This is another of my best tv shows of all time! No matter what you think Of Caroline Aherne (Dirty Drunkard etc...lol) this programme is VERY funny, Very clever and poignant in bits.

Before I start raving about it, does anyone else like? :confused:

I like Caroline Ahern. Didn't I say that Roy?, I said I like Caroline Aherne. :)


I totally agree it's very clever and poignant. The only problem with this sit-com is that the 'sit' bit, the situation, is the most banal and depressing situation I can ever think about. And yes I know that's the whole point :)

Rave on!!!! :) :thumb:

When I first watched it I thought that it was taking the piss out of the working class. However it is so realistic that I had to change my mind.

Never reflected my own family but I've known plenty of people like that. And it is both very funny at times - and shows in a sensitive way some of the pathos of everyday life.

So it gets 9/10 score from me. :):

Awesome...yeah i think a lot of ppl were put out by it...but i think its because like you said, its so relistic!
There's one scene where Jim Royle is scrutinizing the phone bill, and when I lived at home and used to watch it my dad would get up and walk out of the room, complaining it was 'rubbish' because it was IDENTICAL to what he does with the phone bill every month!!

It does take a special skill to make something so banal so funny :)
