Nick Frost isn't even a professional actor and hadn't done anything before Spaced and he's had about 3 shows now.


Pedant Alert!
He was also (very briefly - as a builder going "Phwoaar!" at a puppet) in Big Train the year before Spaced first aired
Clicky for clip...

I've watched them both now and have to say it's incredibly unfunny. Boring in fact. Who in the right mind does an impression of David Lynch? Even the most hardened movie fans wouldn't know what he sounded like.
No, I tried to give him a chance but I shan't watch it again. Too painful.

Far more consistently good last night than previous weeks.

Highlights for me were the Kevin Spacy impression (which scared the wife) and the Darth Vader bits.  After 30 years of parodies and piss takes Serafinowicz found a new and entertaining Star Wars angle.  The "WHAT?" bit kept making me laugh even though he over did it.

David Lynch is one of the few directors who more than a handful of people know what he looks and sounds like. I'd much rather he did Lynch than Simon Cowell...

You can't be serious. You think people know what David Lynch looks or sounds like more than Spielberg, Lucas, Allen, Kubrick, Eastwood, Howard, I could go on.
I suspect that 95% of people watching that show last night wouldn't even know who David Lynch is, let alone what he looks or sounds like.
His Simon Cowell impression is actually very good, and I thought his Spacey one was excellent too, it just wasn't funny.

Half the people who mention are also actors, so of course people know what they look like. And I would say more people could recognise Lynch than Kubrick.

OK, bad examples admittedly, I still don't think anyone knows what Lynch looks or sounds like.
Still, that's just 1 complaint. My main problem is the bloke just isn't funny.

Same here; that was actually the best Vader impression i've ever heard. As usual, I loved the Pacino send up and his Spacey was accurate both visually and audibly - captured his mannerisms well. One of my favourite recurring sketches is the news anchor interrupted by a buzz everytime he makes a wrong statement.

I almost agree with Jonson, but at the same time, I enjoyed some of it this week. Maybe I'm starting to understand what Sefafinowicz finds funny or something.

Maybe it's an acquired taste that sometimes hits but often misses. Like marmite, only marmite with bits of something else in there every so often.

Loving the advert from the last ep. The bit at the end was actually very much like some adverts i've seen...2 not good enough for you, then why not FOUR!

I watched it again for the second time last night I have to say I didn't find anything funny in the program at all. I just don't get it. The whole set-up looks quite old fashioned to me with nothing new to offer.

I like this show and i think one of the reasons is because it doesn't try too hard to be the next Little Britain. That's the direction where numerous programs such as Mitchell and Webb's sketch show went, by trying to stick in catchphrases.

I'm just curious about why his Ralph Fiennes sounds like Leonard Rossiter?

there's a certain Rossiterness to Fiennes in reality and in many of his roles (Spider, for example is basically a mumbly Rossiter impression) - for me it was a great example of why Serafinowicz's impressions work so well: he gets the essence of the person he's doing rather than the exaggeration, which is usual for impressionists.  Although in this case he did exaggerate the Rossiterness that lives within Ralf.
Al Pacino's baseball cap was brilliant.  I'm glad it wasn't just me that found Looking For Richard hillarious for the same reason.
