Never seen it but I saw the mis-spelled obituary scene on the 100 Greatest TV Moments of 2003 recently - brilliant! Is that typical of the series?

Peep Show is a top quality show.

CYE is potentially very good from what I have seen. Just hope the BBC doesn't treat it badly like it did with Seinfeld and The Larry Sanders Show. Needs to be shown at a reasonable hour on BBC2. Please. I don't have freeview or cable.

Written by and stars one of the main writers of Seinfeld - that should be recommendation enough.

Hard to explain really. Its a sit-com but theres not much of a Sit going on. Just a middle aged bloke called Larry and his wife and the things that happen to him .You have to watch it really.
Best bit from last night was when he was playing poker with his new work friends from HBO and called one them the C word.

I am a big fan, I love the way the main character keeps gettin blamed for things outside his control. Glad itsmade it to Englands shores.

Reminds me of an old old sitcom with Simon Callow where he kept getting done by coincidence.

Larry David wrote the Seinfeld series, and not only writes the show but also stars in it.

Really - he wrote it all by himself?

Some weeks I like it, others I don't. When I first watched it I usually sent e-mails to my friends in the States, saying, "Ok, I don't get this, why do Americans think this is hysterical?"

However, it has grown on me. The one with the deceased Aunt was hysterical, but the one in which the wrestler burst his tyre might be one of my favourite episodes of any comedy ever. "I'll give you ten dollars for a verbal response!" Everything tied together perfectly in that episode, it was brilliant.

I am also gullible enough to be impressed by the fact that a lot of the dialogue is improvised.

Far too good for BBC4, I hope it isn't left there, otherwise it will be sadly overlooked (and I've heard the "Crazee Eyed Killahs" episode from series 3/4 is top class).

I bought the DVD from Amazon last week. 10 episodes on it. True genius IMO. I was rolling about on the floor laughing.

Brilliant show. I described the main character to a mate who'd never seen it as being a cross between Woody Allen and Victor Meldrew. His response was 'Is his catchphrase... "I don't believe it already"?'.

Top stuff. Anyone know if there are any plans for re-runs or a further series?

The BBC are negotiating to buy the new series I believe. As said earlier in the thread they will probably just stick it on BBC4.
