Haha I'm the same to be fair. I'd recognise a quote from The Office (UK obvs) the second somebody mentioned it and most of my close pals seem to really like The Office too, share that same sense of humour.

I do also feel the same about Bottom, particularly when the Cheltenham Gold Cup comes around every year and jokes about Sad Ken start going viral :D

I couldn't quite get the office, whereas Extras totally blew me away. I find some people can't bear the uncomfortable humour used in Extras where people say or do the worst possible thing in social situations, but I found it hilarious.

Rhod is one of few modern comics i like, along with Kevin bridges. Dont like the posh boys Mcintyre, Jimmy Car, Whitehall etc.

KRO

Kevin Bridges for me as well. Always quite liked Sean Lock as well, and Doug Stanhope. Struggling to think of others.

Haven't seen much of Extras, but have seen parts of the Daniel Radcliffe episode and it did look pretty good, just never got round to watching it properly

That is one of my favourite episodes, but the Bowie one is even better. I find that it's like marmite - so if you liked it even a bit, get the two series and the short film, you'll love them.

Likewise for me. I think I know all of the words! That and 'smells' were the first ones I saw and it took me a while to watch any of the others because I just kept watching those two. I find that the 'for fun?' statement by Eddie when Richie asked him why he kept hitting the gasman with the frying pan is particularly useful when the missus asks me why I did something I shouldn't have - she loves the series more than I do.

Sound, I'll give Extras a go then thumbs up

Would be hard to pick a favourite Bottom moment. The bit where Rik threatens the imaginary boy in the shop for shoplifting is pretty good, but I don't think anything beats the episode where Eddie hides the TV so they try to find other ways to entertain themselves, like the game of 'Put the piece of cello-tape on the fridge'.. The game of chess is a particular highlight too.

Bottom, my arse.

Not funny I know, but that’s the point.

I was lucky enough to see the first comic strip tour which was compared by Alexei Sayle, with act by French and Saunders, the dangerous brothers (mostly each other with increasingly large implements) and Nigel Planer/Peter Richardson. It was in an old cinema!
