What a shame i too was annoyed about canned laughter and although
did laugh at a couple of quips with Frances thought what a shame that
two brilliant actors did not quite do it for me, maybe on stage as has been said
it would work better.
Taped Dave Allen and enjoyed that, also thought the Job Centre was rubbish did nothing for me.

MTG hope you have left your thread on, I was going to delete this one before
I went to bed last night but forgot, it was just to let folk know it was coming on.

What a big let down after all the hype thats been rammed down our throats, ten minutes in and a DVD went on, wont be watching this again.

Apologies Goldengirl. Did not see you had posted a thread about this before I did.

I recorded it but just started watching and deleted after the first ten minutes, what a load of old tripe!

I didn't like the look of the Job centre programme so ignored that.

Wish I had recorded Hoarder next Door, but can watch that later this week when it's repeated.

I was disappointed in Vicious too,great actors but lines were soo predictable :-(.....however I did laugh at Frances de la Tour,must be the way she tells 'em ;-)

I also watched most of Dave Allan,his material then used to be so original.

Vicious was awful, thankfully we recorded Dave Allen, brilliant, was surprised to learn his wife gave birth to a son 3 weeks after he died, thought it would of been big news at the time, but don't recall hearing of it. Also saw The Job lot, which was on after after Vicious, enjoyed that, think it may be a good series :-D

Not my cup of tea either, Vicious I mean not Dave Allen :-)

I turned over and caught most of the programme about Dave Allen, just wonderful :-)

Very very disappointing. :-(


Island Report 29 Apr 2013 22:07

So disappointed! I stuck it for twenty minutes,

The canned laughter, the playing to the gods, it was giving me the irrits.

Rambling Rose Report 29 Apr 2013 22:03

I lasted 2 minutes, before the canned laughter drove me off, it might have worked on stage but not on tv.


Lyndi Report 29 Apr 2013 21:52

I 'switched off' somewhere in the first 10 minutes :-(
Not my cup of tea either


ButtercupFields Report 29 Apr 2013 21:48

I made myself watch it but it was as I thought it might be...canned laughter and too campified (is there such a word? :-D)...Sad to see great actors doing stuff like this.


Gins Report 29 Apr 2013 21:34

I saw the ads for that and thought, hmm

Just watched it, never again!


'Emma' Report 29 Apr 2013 18:53
