Who's been watching the new series? I missed the first episode (watching The Stranglers that night so I forgot to tape it). I love this show it's always really funny.

Last week's was really funny. I loved how Russell Howard pwned Hugh Dennis with his Harry Potter knowledge and there was a group in the audience who kept cheering and screaming whenever he made any Harry Potter jokes and references. Last night's was good, I loved Frankie Boyles' 'creepy sexy voice'.

Yay yay yay!

Frankie Howard is my favourite. I didn't see it last night (but have Virgin tv on demand :-D) I'm really looking forward to finding out what you mean by "creepy sexy voice". X-D

I've noticed that Dara doesn't do his little standing up "gags" bit at the beginning anymore though.

One of my favourite things that Frankie Boyle has said (that I can remember) is:

Is it just me that's really horrified by the Spice Girls' reunion? The only time I want to see Geri Halliwell draped in a Union Jack is if she dies in battle.

X-D It's a class show!

Love it. Love Andy Parsons - genius. But have you noticed the frequency with which Hugh Dennis's team wins? Biased?

I like Andy Parsons. Have you noticed how Andy Parsons always gets the answer right in the first round?

But he always says "Is it.... ?" with the air of a man who knows damn well that it is... X-D Guessing it's an in-joke...

He also always says "Now-" during the Stand-up Stand-off of Death round. I used to really hate him with his walk and his shiny head and his little beard and his slightly Baldrick voice, but I like it now...

Hugh Dennis is great! He's just got such a fantastic frightening face. WHen they were doing bad things to hear over a tannoy or something, and he said "ONLY YOU CAN HEAR ME." or "Second floor... But you can't get out."

Check this link. Hugh Dennis has offended some members of our bipolar community. I don't watch the show (being in Poland) but I think this is a serious gaffe beyond the boundaries of good taste.

I remember a routine he did years ago (if I've got the right guy - blonde, American, wears a suit?) where he pointed out that politicians were following the "AIDS is God's punishment for gays and drug users so we're not going to do anything" policy and then mysteriously gave it their attention when they discovered prostitutes can get it.

Gawd was that American annoying in last week's episode! Very unfunny too.

Wahey David Mitchell, don't recall ever seeing him on MTW before (maybe he has and I missed it). Hmmm quite a fast walker in the final stand-up round. He has to be when there's Frankie and Hugh around! X-D Aww poor Andy Parsons kept falling off the platform coz of David Mitchell zooming across.

Think he's been on once or twice before

Did you see the preview in Thursday's Guardian - the tv critic absolutely slated it, we were amazed.

They always put decent things on at the same time MTW is on the same time as House.
