Alan Partridge

Just downloaded a clip of the new series on the BBC website and they have put audience laughing dubbed on. Why?

I think it spoils the programme and am sure they have not done it before on Alan Partridges series apart from the series based on the chat show host.

When episodes of M*A*S*H ran in the US, they all contained canned laughter which was subsequently removed when aired in the UK. I remember one episode that ran with it still in and the Beeb apologised for the oversight at the end of the programme. That episode was definately spoiled by the canned laughter, the dry and black humour was cheapened by it and it just gets in the way.

If something's funny, I laugh, if it isn't, I don't. Personally, I don't need canned laughter to let me know if I'm amused.

Right..... Putting soap box away, going out, getting p!ssed!

I think I'm probably in the minority, but I can't sit through OF&H any more. More personal tragedy in one episode than Eastenders meets News at Ten. It depresses the hell out of me. (Apart from that, Del boy gets on my thrupnys!)

Having said that; if you take shows like OF&H, Porridge, Friends where the humour is so obvious, you can get away with canned laughter.

Slap canned laughter over The Office and it'd change the whole feel of the show, IMHO not for the better.

They should dub canned moaning and misery over EastEnders, and canned shock and horror over Watchdog.

I had the misfortune to catch a comedy program with Zoe Wannashagme in earlier this week and they play canned laughter at every gap, even in mid-sentence. I started laughing along with it in a sarcastic manner until the missus belted me one.

Those episodes with the canned laughter were awful.

A bit of canned laughter in the catering and bar areas might help though!!
