Ooh, where to begin... Aussie comedy-wise, The Games is really up there, as is Frontline. Anything with the word 'Micallef' in the title I love (plus Newstopia, which I've been rewatching and enjoying even more 2nd time around). And, you know, The D- Gen stuff, The Gillies Report, Clarke & Dawe on The 7.30 Report...Mason Hell-Cat wrote:gee you're a hard nut to impress when it comes to comedy arent you 13?
Tell me some of your all time fave series (aside from TLS and TMMS)..
Of the second string stuff (off the top of my head) , Eric Bana's sketch show I liked, Chris Lilley's stuff in Big Bite was really good (it's all been downhill from there), CNNNN had plenty of good moments for mine, Safran's SBS shows were more hit than miss... even Real Stories made me smile on occasions, and C31's Twentysomething raised a smirk every now and again. Micallef's bits on Full Frontal are pretty fun as well.
Overseas shows - well, from the US it's Mr Show, Chappelle's Show, The Larry Sanders Show, Seinfeld, CYE, Dr Katz, early Simpsons, The (US) Office, Arrested Development, Wonder Showzen, The Venture Brothers... geez, there's plenty more. Loads of UK shows too. I mean, I could go on...
I know I come off as a harsh judge sometimes, but, well, life is short and there's so much REALLY GOOD stuff out there that it's hard to get excited over stuff that's just ok.
