British TV at its very best, loved it.
Am only as far as episode 2 but my my... Crook has gone up ten fold in my estimations.
Just read that he directed and wrote it. It's exquisite isn't it? The writing is sooo sharp and great performances all round.
After watching episode one, I was enjoying it but didn't expect full LOL... ep 2 was getting momentum... then that opener to 3...
Oh and yeah his girlfriend is lovely.
Lance is the real star character though, for me at least. The scenes in farm packing yard - esp the University Challenge bit... marvellous.
(So yeah, I binged the lot in a single session tonight. Fab.)

Well if you are going to be pedantic about it...
She's going to have an affair, isn't she?
Probably depends if he digs up any gold.

NO SPOILERS PLEASE GANG
thanks for recommending this all, i burned through the first 4 episodes of series 1 yesterday, pretty ace
Nostalgia conventions aren't what they used to be
I fucking LOVE this show. So glad its back.
A clown car is "silly", the TR7 is a classic
Its still got it
It was the find at the end that did for me. Priceless
This show simply is, lovely stuff. Gentle humour and well written, rounded characters.
And i have a bit of a crush on Sophie
Great British TV
To find comedy redemption after starring in Sex lives of a potato man is a tall order, take a bow Mr Crook. Better than Gervais and Merchant's recent sit-com efforts as well.
A couple of years ago I was in a diabetic coma. This was more fun than Gervais and Merchant's recent sitcom efforts, to be fair
Apparently the Yanks are going gooey over the comic genius that is Derek. Perhaps they're missing Robin Williams movies.
I have since changed my mind on this and am enjoying it.
Liked for first part. Totally agree.
Simon and Garfunkel are back
Lots of nice lines around that theme in there.
A lovely series - and locations I know fairly well as well!
Becky's voice is getting right on my fucking tits now.
Separate names with a comma.
