    It’s watchable but more like that terrible film than The Office. The dog seems to be the best actor in it!
    Just compare the drug guy here with Super Hans in peep show for example.
    Also - can’t he shop somewhere other than Next? :lol: He’s literally stuck in a bootcut 2002

    For The Office alone, the bloke should be knighted.

    It’s ok so far, no more but I’m early on

    I don’t like the bloke anymore and a lot of this is rehashed, lot of 2 dimensional charachters

    Maybe it’s because I compare it the office which is just genius, it’s slapstick at times but no show got across the mundane nature of life so well. Tim especially so relatable, unhappy, feels he’s above it but doesn’t do aanything about it

    Will stick with this

    Binge watching Derek. How did I miss this? Funny, touching and brilliantly acted

    It's good but I think people are going way OTT with it. Derek, Extras and The Office were miles better.

    yeah it's the all time killer track Into your arms by cave. This show is brutal but great....Steve Coogan must watch this and think fuck it's miles better than my show....one is relevant and one is outdated..

    It's about awareness, that is the undercurrent of the show, and the main character's increasing awareness of the world around him and his effect on it. Perhaps too subtle for you.

    I like gervais, more than half way in to this and don’t think it’s any more than ok.

    It's as subtle as a sledgehammer. Everything about it is obvious and ridiculously predictable.

    Class show even enjoyed the US one started off a bit shit as tried to copy the UK one but then grew into its own show/style if you know what I mean.

    Micheal Scott was brilliant same with Dwight :lol:

    There's nowt subtle about overusing the word "c-u-n-t" to the point where you know when it's coming every single time. There's nowt subtle about picking on fat ginger kids or big fat blokes. There's nowt subtle about the druggie being a homeless person who carries his drugs about in a brown paper bag. There's nowt subtle about any of the music he used. I don't think it was utter shit, it's just not very good.

    I started watching that too. Never got around to it at first.

    I got through the first series. Only laughed out loud a few times, surprisingly at Karl Pilkington mainly.

    All nicked from his Xfm radio shows and podcasts. Lazy as fuck.

    Watched it all now, the first 5 episodes were class, the final episode reminded me of gervais films, dumbed down sentimentality for US audiences. Shame. Still a toppa series. Hope there’s another...
    Rewatching Extras on Netflix, what a fantastic series that is.

    I just don't understand the reverence for him. The Office aside, he's very poor.

    You seem as glib as him.
