On the other hand, very intrigued to see what the two guys behind it do next.

I haven't watched Inside No. 9. It was made by Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith wasn't it? I remember liking Psychoville when that was on and although I've never seen much of the League of Gentleman series, I did see the film, and again remember finding that very funny at the time.

Well, there's a lot to watch, if you're interested. Nine series of self-contained stories and the average standard is very high.

Just watched the pilot episode of "The High Life". Not much of a revelation, as it turns out they remade the exact same story for episode 5 "Choob". Still, it is a lot of very silly fun.

Some episodes of Inside No9 were, not exactly poor, just not that great in comparison with others.
But the ones that hit the spot were incredible. 
Steve Pemberton is such an incredible actor, I'd argue he's the best make actor (out of anyone) currently around.

When in Rome, do as the Romans do.

When in Scotland, watch Still Game for a gently subversive laugh. Okay, you can get it on iPlayer South of the border, but it never occurs to me to do that when I'm at home.

Plus Nick Cave has never been better than in his role as Boabby the Barman.

Where would you rank Boaby/Nick in the 'Sons of Lee Marvin ' roster ?.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

They're making a Time Bandits TV series. The only name I recognise is Lisa Kudrow from Friends but it actually looks like it could be fun. Sadly, it's on a channel I don't subscribe to.
