    Watched it last night and really enjoyed it. Laughed out loud quite a few times. The blonde overacted a bit and the accents were a bit off in places (as was the geography) but the humour more than made up for these indiscretions :D

    A very promising start

    Tonight's episode is crap. Very disappointed as so good first two weeks.

    I didn't think it was crap...but it wasn't just as good as the first two. It was verging on ripping off Fr. Ted at one stage.

    Yes. I "forgive" them a bit because I think they're trying to find their feet. I've felt from the get go that there were too many plots floating around and that maybe less is more.

    I'm hanging in - fingers crossed.

    It has remained very strong IMHO. Funny as fuck sometimes. Only one episode left of the series unfortunately :(

    Same here. I've enjoyed every episode so far.

    One of the rare occasions when I'm actually conscious that the show is about to be on on a Thursday evening! whereas normally I'd always forget about a show being on on a given evening.

    If you call soon enough 'next year' then you're right...:P

    Thanks for your enlightening input, with a full in depth explanation as to why you don't like the show, 4 months since the last post on the thread.

    To be fair, I've contributed more to the thread than you have. At least I'm on topic.

    The mural on the gable wall of Badgers looks great! Some skill involved in spray painting the characters on a wall like that :cool:
