The first 2 were some of the best things I've ever seen on TV! What's wrong with you man?
Tonight's episode was very good with a very dark twist.
The are morphing ever closer to Tales of the Unexpected for those old enough to remember those creepy Roald Dahl inspired vignettes. IMO they (and the rest of the League of Gentleman crew) can do no wrong.
Steve Pemberton is, i think, a very fine actor. Reece is good too, but Steve is a real class act.
The Silent one in S1, and the Hotel and the Removal Day episodes in S4 are my top three. This week’s was dark as fuck though,
3rd and 4th just awesome !
I don't want it to end. It's my favourite thing at the moment.
He said the scene with Nurse Honeybun was the hardest scene he's ever had to film.
I was thinking that while watching it, must have been awful for both of them.
I liked the awkwardness of it...as if you were in the same situation yourself.
yeh my least favourite. just too uncomfortable. not enough light in with the darkness.
I enjoyed the episode, although it lacked the film noir of their usual stuff.
Yes, I was saying much the same to my better half yesterday. Must be the ‘happiest’ episode in the entire series (not counting S3 which I haven’t seen yet). No deaths, no injuries, no seriously fucked up or sad scenarios. Not the most memorable, but it compensated by a very good cast.
The fact that they get churning up such diverse high quality material from one episode to the next is remarkable. I can’t believe I only discovered this series last week. Can’t wait for S3 to become available on Netflix or iPlayer.
For me this was weak.
And surely the "happiest" was the Hotel one.
True that, the hotel one was great and upbeat.
So, the last one of the series last night. A relatively high quantity of jokes, especially from Maz.
Another top episode. Loved the hare finally getting a starring role.
This one was too dark for me - creeped me out.
It started well, but I thought it started to get a bit far fetched towards the end. Enjoyable, but the weakest episode of the series IMO
It was dark, but you don't think the one about the sex slave locked in the basement was way darker?
You're probably right - but this one pressed my personal fears and neuroses more effectively.
Be careful what you wish for....I want another series, now!
I agree the last episode was scarier but not as dark. The basement one was just too tense and dark all the way through. RE the last one, I thought it was clever how they made a small council flat a scary environment by use of low light and piles of belongings everywhere making it feel claustrophic and entrapping.
