The Fast Show

Beeb have made a couple of new ones and one was aired last night.
Really liked the original series but have to admit that they started to become the same old same old and seemed to be on all the time at one point. The new re-make last night was ace and had me laughing out loud and seeing all the old characters coming back again.
The guy who does the Jazz Club(grreeeaattt!) being a favourite.And Dave Angel the Eco Warrior!
Think that there is another on this weekend at some point.
Check it out as its well worth a look.

Totally agree man, totes

Loved it, even Scorcio but that might be because of the lovely blonde and her cleavage

'White, like all the head people at the BBC!' or something

WTF! Can't believe I missed that. Haven't seen any publicity for it. TFS was fucking brill IMHO.
Plastic Man

Me... the Seventh Earl of Otley... with my reputation...

What were they thinking of, caricaturing one's good self...

As good as i remembered it and maybe a bit better. Mark Williams missing though?

And ideally suited to an old chap like myself with a limited concentration spa

Maybe he's in the second one?  Maybe they just haven't used any of his characters - I'm trying to rememer then now and struggling to.

Today I have mostly been watching Mark Williams hosting a shit daytime quiz show.

Yep, you got me there  I really liked his 'dad rushing on holiday with his family' character too, as well as - though I think it never made the final cut - a car driver who was hyperventilating with rage at other drivers/pedestrians/the human race.  

Suit you sir!  Double Take twins too.

There was the 'which was nice' bloke and the 'I'll get me coat' chap too.

And the secret alcoholic.

Which got on my nerves actually, least funny part just about every time I sawed it.
Late Doors

Bit mixed, wasnt it, isnt it? First one ok, second one a mix of the ace and mundane. Why do it at all? Especially with lots of the key characters out. Should have let it lie. The third series took it as far as it should have gone.
Frazier Cranium

If they'd have involved all the original cast then I would have happily watched hours of it but as they DIDN'T, it definitely lost something in the second one. Personally thought it was mediocre at best that one.
Plastic Man

I, for one, appreciated them though, as other correspondents have noted, the second episode was not as good as the first.

There was a third related programme, with Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse presenting parodies of other BBC2(?) through the ages. That was probably the best of all three.
Frazier Cranium

Not in my opinion it wasn't!  It was clever and observant a lot of the time but Jeez didn't they fecking know it?  I do like Enfield's Scharmer impersonation though
Dock

Kin' missed the first two but saw the Harry Enfield and Paul Whitehouse one. I was pissing myself at that. I love Simon Schama as a historian and presenter and his series 'The Story of the Jews' should be on the national curriculum IMHO  but that impression was great, especially shot at all the quirky moody angles. The parody of all the panel shows was long overdue. It's become the smuggest and safest format from its beginnings as a bit leftfield. HIGNFY is still good but I cant even stand to watch QI anymore. Total shit.
