Does it make me look over excitable two posts to blog entries in the space of 4 hours?

In-between now and my last entry I have watched 3 more episodes of Miranda and am now watching Gavin & Stacey, British comedy series about a guy from Essex who falls in love with a girl from Whales, and I thought "I really want to post another blog entry" so I decided I would, and I'd talk about British comedy which your probably not familiar with unless your British.

Well I've mentioned Miranda

I began watching Miranda when it was put in the BBC one running order between two other British comedies that I watch. Miranda is about a somewhat large, single, clumsy woman who brought a joke shop with her inheritance of which she put her best friend in charge of. She has an incredibly over bearing mother and has a crush on the Chief of the restaurant next door. What’s good about Miranda is she highlights a lot of the things that are comical about the simpler things of life and explores public opinion, what other people think of you.

Gavin and Stacey

This show is funny because all of the characters will talk about absolutely anything as if it was really important, for example a discussion about oven gloves they had on Christmas Eve, whereby Gavin's Uncle Pete asks his Dad where he got his oven gloves from because he needed some new ones. I couldn't really describe it well enough to make it sound funny but I promise it’s a good show.

The Inbetweeners

This is about 4 social Outcasts who are desperately trying to find their way in society. After 3 series and a movie they all end up with a girlfriend, which is nice. The show really challenges what is acceptable to watch but not deliberately as it is based on the events of the two writer's early lives whereby they themselves had many misshapes.

Friday Night Dinner

The show is about a family that comes together every Friday night for dinner as part of a Jewish tradition. Over the night the two brothers will immaturely whined each other up, whilst their mother stresses to cope with their idle father.

Not Going Out

I'm not sure why this is the title because never do they have an episode where all the characters stay in. But regardless it’s a barrel of laughs.

Sorry I've not really had much to say, but if I've sparked any interest you should really look these comedy’s up. I'm not sure if any of these shows get shown outside of the UK but I defiantly think they should.

    No, none of these shows are stateside, even on BBC America. Kinda sucks, they sound good. But Monty Python's awesome. Which reminds me that I really need to watch Doctor Who. That's on here, at least. I think we have a knock-off of it too. We have a Top Gear knock-off which really sucks compared to the British version.
