I do think it's a bit flat about 25% of the time, but when it IS great, it's SOOO damn good....

I thought the racism one (1st epi on the 2nd DVD) was almost laughless. Some of the songs just miss the mark sometimes generally speaking.

You're about a year too late! I think they're announcing the new season to be aired this summer soon. I wouldn't put a few festival appearances past them either. If they do, I get front row seats. In your faces everyone else.

The racism one is one of my favourites, but I do agree it can be a little flat. It helps to be drunk.

I can't remember which one the racism one is

I like it, it's very amiable, almost gentle, but deceptively so

it's made me laugh out loud many times which is kind of what you want from a comedy programme... in my house it's a HIT!

It's the one that culminates in the drive-by bird flipping. I think it's a fantastic programme - you're absolutely right about it being almost gentle viewing. I find it real comfort viewing, and very very funny, obviously.

Yeah, I guess the bad thing about that episode is that the funniest part is during the closing credits. I guess it resonates with me as a semi-canadian...

It also has Albi The Racist Dragon, which is one of my favourite moments of the series...

Australians are like "Where's the caaaar?", and New Zealanders are more like "Where's the caaaar?".

etc. it's brilliant though i've actually managed to see the entire series in bits and pieces without viewing it sober. so maybe it is good drunk telly. i am in no position to judge otherwise. the racism episode is skill purely because it's fucking funny for an asian chap to be violently and pathologically racist towards people from new zealand. and swearing is fuppin' funny. we must have watched that video craig posted about 100 times trying to work out the words and stuff. i think we have the apple/shaker toss down to the nearest centimetre in height.

"ashes to ashes david bowie? is it gay to put a wig on someone and pretend they're a woman?"

"gay? why that's not gay at all bret"

"oh watch out for the table"

"ooof"

etc
