    It reminded me of the old 'Thriller' series from the 70's...Opening sequence looked like you were looking into the back of a spoon :D

    I thought it was a piss take/homage to Tales of the Unexpected at first.

    All of them are odd, as you would expect by the writers :D
    My favourite was the one in the wardrobe.

    It was like the love child of Acorn antiques and Hammer house of horror.
    Shame it was only half an hour, it flew by.

    Anyone else watch this last night? Excellent stuff.

    I did think they nicked two plot devices from other sitcoms though. The fighting over who pays the bill was done with Mrs Doyle and Mrs Dineen in The Mainland, and the don't-look-in-the-top-drawer featured throughout the first series of I'm Alan Partridge.

    Its a great little series.
    I'm a big fan of nicely written one room stories.

    I think they are all plot devices used in many different places over time but how they amalgamated them was brilliant.
    Exactly they level I have come to expect from this series. :cool:

    Very enjoyable. Until the last shot anyway. Why would he agree to do that?

    I thought they blackmailed him over the stuff in hotel room.

    Not sure that really works unless it's the same night, which it obviously wasn't.

    Didn't work for me, but it didn't ruin it either, so what the heck.

    That was one twist too many, and didn't make a lot of sense. Besides that though it was excellent, a perfectly executed sucker punch at the viewer's expense.

    The last twist was silly. But thats kind of the joke, really.

    Mine too. Cannot really be watched for a second time though as it's the unexpected that made it so good. A close second is the silent robbery. I've enjoyet the rest but those 2 really stand out for me.

    Nice twists. Steve Pemberton really needs to learn how to play a different character tho.

    It's got one more character than Shearsmith's got tbf.

    The silent robbery one was fucking excellent. I rarely ever phsyically lol but I did but when the burglar opened the rear door to let out the little noisy dog only for a bigger noiser dog to trot inside I was howling.

    Nothing spectacular but solid and almost charming that last one

    I liked the twist, for a change I didn't see it coming.

    I hope they do another series of psychoville.

    That one didn't really work.
