Derek, what was that all about then, is it one of those things you have to watch again?

Missed it. Judging by the things I've heard though I don't think I'll bother.

Its the "comedy" word in there.
That's the misbrand.
Comedy = To be funny or comical

So what's your excuse?

Having not watched it I'm struggling to see how anything you say is relevant.

Watched some of the trailers. (Channel four likes to ram anything new right down your thought on every add break)
They just made me want to turn off.
Or to put it the other way, they made me want to do the opposite to what they are supposed to

Or to put it another way, you had a pre-conception that this was some sort of all out comedy show because Gervais is in it but the advert said otherwise...which you objected too.

Just as a heads up, a comedy drama is a drama with some comedy in it...if it was advertised purely as a comedy then you might have a point but you've missed the mark completely. Had you bothered to watch it you'd see it was more drama than comedy.

Ive seen comedy dramas in the past and they where funny.
It should hold to the first part of its brand.

or just be called "Drama"

For good comedy drama try Ideal,
Its at least funny

I've seen ideal, I found it a bit tedious, and I actually watched it...can you beleive it, I actually watched it!! So I can make informed judgements on it.

Maybe I'll start replying to your anime posts saying how I'm bored of seeing flying c0cks exploding from geisha girls mouths while they're being sodmised by 10ft tall stone samurai....you know, because apparently seeing a trailer or reading your posts is more than plenty.

If you want to continue highlighting your ignorance knock yourself out, you've made me all sleepy now and I've got work in 8 hours so toodle pip old chap.

Well for what its worth - I thought it was really good...

Thought Karl was just being Karl and Mr Gervais was really good as Derek...

I know lots of people are going to say it was rubbish because it has Mr Gervais in, but personally i thought he acted with more skill than many other things he has been in.

The part where Joan dies was quite poignant and I thought the headbutt in the pub was very very good.

It was indeed comedy drama

Better than most of the censored on the telly at the moment, but I dont see any threads slating Take Me Out or Eastenders.

What a strange world.

I would watch it and then make your own mind up.

Oh I'm sorry, I didn't realise that all TV shows had to be screened for you first so that you can give it the seal of approval and fit it into it's perfect pidgeon hole. Have you got a document or list we can all look at so we can just stop posting about sh*t and just post about stuff you want to talk about?

I couldn't give a f*ck what it's called, my point is that I'll posting ill-informed BS just like you...but that went over your head didn't it :roll:
