This Country - new BBC comedy

Recommended Posts

This is great isn't it ?

 

On at 12am Saturday BBC 1. Previously on BBC3 online

 

When I first saw an advert for it, the spice girls clip, i didn't initially realise it was a mockumentary, (there's so many reality shows now), and the Mackenzie Crook lookalike with Gareth haircut is extremely convincing.

This is filmed near where my girlfriend lives. Exaggerated for comic effect, it's still a pretty good take on rural life.

I thought this was absolute shite. Everyone has that Ricky Gervais intonation, and the main guy is like an off-brand Mackenzie Crook.

I wasn't sure about this when I first saw the trailers but I grew to love it as I watched the series. It was as tragic as it was funny, though.

Heads up everyone Series 2 (2 eps so far)  is on the IPlayer? Though I’m a tad concerned there’s been no press about it. Please still be good.

And the first episode is not shit at all. Agony to watch on occasion, but so funny as well. 

 

Kerry’s mum’s bit is hilarious.

Holy shit this is fantastic. I started watching it tonight and ended up watching 5 eps in a row, because I am hooked. So funny!

I tried to watch this ages ago and turned off after 10 mins.  I think the fake documentary format is just tired so I didn't give it a fair go.

Anyway, my brother convinced me to give it another go and it's really good.   I love the vicar in particular.   I still think the format is tired but this is good stuff.

I just started watching the second series of this, it’s also brilliant.

 

Kurtan’s cress! :lol:

My fave line in S2 is still Kerry’s mum shouting downstairs 

 

“you know what would be a random act of kindness?” 

 

I won’t spoil the rest but I laughed a lot.

Haha, yes! All Kerry’s mum’s stuff is amazing.

 

She called the PlayStation a space station. :wub:

The latest episode is yet another superb one. The vicar's son, the boyband and especially Kerry and her mum's conversation at the end when she's busted.

 

Brilliant show and even quite touching in places.

Was a great first episode, I was gutted for Kerry, I always fancy working at the recycling centre myself.

 

Can’t believe Sluggsy/Sleggsy died, poor guy.

Thanks for pointing this out to me. I just finished episode 4 of the first series and it is really hitting its stride.

 

I love the Warhammer kids (Count Fartula and Weak Nathan) and the pyramid scheme that isn't a pyramid scheme. For a 20 minute show it's crammed full of humour.
