        It may come from the differences in production that somehow influence the writing. In America where you get a writers room, 22 episodes per batch and 9 seasons giving you 198 episodes British comedy shows get 6 to 8 episodes per batch, often written all by a single writer or a duo (in the case of Peep Show they majority are co-written by Jesse Armstrong & Sam Bain). Peep Show ran for 9 seasons (which is long-running for a British comedy) with 6 episodes per go resulting 54 episodes.

          A lot of British comedy is more concerned with characters a opposed to the specific situations: that's to say the situation is more there to service the character as opposed to the character being a means to present the comedic situation. That's probably born from having only 1-2 writers enabling a better grasp of the character and the recognition of the inherent tragedy they often have.

        Suicide rates tell a different story. Their optimism is fake, it's like tome cruise optimism. It's tiring and oftentimes condescending. Bongs are taking it a bit much but expecting things to be shitty highlights the good things

          It seems shocking that the UK is as low as 117 on the suicide rate list.

        People who left for the colonies were more optimistic. America has less depressing landscapes on the whole. London is Hell itself and the centralization of all power into a couple of interconnected cabals is more pronounced there than, say, NYC or Washington. WWII saw the empire broken up and our best and brightest dead. Thatcher and Blair were hellbent on destroying the country. The future here is as grim and grey as the weather.

      is this a real consideration you have to make about media you watch? are you really such a coombrain that you worry about having to jerk it too many times while watching?
      the scene you're referring to is not hot or sexy in any way because mark is narrating it and he's an extremely awkward character and he just complains about how he doesn't know what to do and then cums in his pants and runs away. but jesus christ man. stop jacking it to tv shows.

    I gave it a shot but was unimpressed. Had to bail in season 2 when he tries to have sex with a black guy.
    Great idea, okay execution but just not really funny and just boring most episodes.
    Go ahead and say I got filtered, I agree, something is clearly lost on me as I have good friends who I respect who say this is the best comedy ever.

    Good question.
    I discovered it through Paterson Joseph, and i discovered Paterson Joseph through Wonka.
    What's weird is that i watched other shows with the same humor, the Office UK, Angry Boys (anything Chris Lilley), Ali G... It never came up.

    i used to love this show, and it has some hilarious moments, and i generally consider mitchell and webb to be really funny people, but its honestly such a bleak and nihlistic show i can't really stand it anymore. seinfeld is kind of similar but at least i find the main characters a little more likeable/relatable overall

      one of the writers is pretty much confirmed to have raped the dude in Baby Raindeer , the other writer Armstrong has done some good stuff but he's also too nihilistic for my taste and all his character are too similar and speak with a similar voice. I like mitchell and webb on their own though.

        succession is one of my favorite shows of all time and I think he does a pretty good job separating character voice there
        but i will say that 90% of the shows humor is just the same flavor of insult comedy so ymmv

    >(let it drop... let it drop... a little more... aaand bump it back to the top. this is great, it's like chessington world of adventure. I could do this all day - well actually, I have done this all day. god. that's right, you'll all listen to my EP whether you like it or not. this is Cinemaphile, this thread ain't going anywhere fast, hombre. no IP count either, I could be anybody. I could be mark for all they know. "actually jeremy, sage goes in the options field not the name field and blah de blah de blah I wank off on spreadsheets and eat grown-up pasta look at me my clothes fit me". god I hate mark. maybe I should dox him. that'd be funny. "jeremy, some evil mastermind has doxxed me! he's going to cut my penis off and put it on encyclopedia dramatica". heh. maybe I SHOULD dox him. that'd be a laugh. the ultimate crime. then he'd come to me for a shoulder to cry on, blissfully unaware that the wolf sleeps with the sheep. "don't worry mark, they'll probably just photoshop you into gay porn and email it to JLB. I'm sure it happens all the time." maybe I should do that too. nah, maybe not. I might get a boner, that'd be weird. if I start getting boners from mark it's the beginning of the end. he sleeps right down the hall. I could easily rape him if I wanted. that's enough, just knowing that. maybe I won't dox him. I live here too, if I doxxed him I'd just be doxxing myself, I think? is that how that works? maybe I should dox myself... nah. I could dox sophie maybe, he might like that actually. maybe for his birthday.)

    The show should've ended after Mark and Sophie's Wedding. There's still good episodes after that but overall it would've been a perfect sendoff.
