I'm a huge fan of British comedy from any era (I have Only Fools and Horses, Fawlty Towers, Monty Python TV, Dinnerladies, Acorn Antiques, The Office, Pheonix Nights, Peep Show etc. on DVD) and after babysitting a lad across the road (they have Sky) I watched a couple of episodes of 'Gimme Gimme Gimme' which I haven't seen in ages! I didn't use too think much of it because I thought it played on the gay jokes too much but I have really started to get into it now and I bought the third season on DVD the other day. My fav episode is 'Secrets and Flies' where Linda's son returns and their talking about distinctive things about his dad...

Tom: So apart from his unique dress sense, what else can you remember about him?
Linda: Well this might come as a bit of a shock too you but if I remember rightly your daddy was black.
Tom: Are you taking the piss!?

I know it's not one of the most favoured comedy shows but I still think it's a great one too have in the collection which for me is building up right now, only need too get some Porridge now!

I think it's quite funny. Series 3 was the weakest though.

Off the subject but I found that graphic novel at the bottom of my pile last night and started reading it again. Brilliant book

Yeah, it is a great novel. I particularly love the poems (or epitaphs or something like that) in the back.

I think they are supposed to be musings for psychiatric evaluation.

Well, isn't the whole novel? I was just being blase about it.
My only complaint with the novel is its artwork.

I think the art work is amazing, if a little unusual. Especially batman and two-face. The close ups of the Joker are good too.

I love Gimmie, Gimmie Gimmie as well I have all three seasons on dvd. It was so funny I wish they had made another series.
I thought it was hilarious when Linda was babysitting Petula the doll and was telling her stories.

I'm sorry it is an excellent graphic novel, but nowt to go with Gimme Gimme Gimme!!

On subject, I love Tom, he is just wonderful and so evil!! Linda is fabulous because she is so vile! My favourite quotes include:

Sugar Walls: We had to stick her in a kennel from the age of eight, just so we could get some bloody sleep!
Linda:You make it sound abnormal.

Linda: I should be a glam mum like Scary Spice… Tits up here, arse out there, Max Beesley giving me a lick.

Tom: Oh this is so ridic

Oh, I love Gimme Gimme Gimme. Definately up there with the likes of Bottom.
One of my favourite parts is where Tom and Linda are playing cherades (sp?) and she has Robbie and Cery's from Catatonia on her team. And Tom mimics the song, Material Girl yet Linda reckons it's Eiderdown Girl living in an Eiderdown world.  And when she dresses up as a muslim and says
"I don't care what I wear, as long as it's nipple pink" 
And she get's in the cab and says to the taxi driver, "Stop lookin at my tits you rotten bugger!"

Also love the one where Tom gets a part in a play and they go down the firemans pole at the end.
Linda: "I'm stuck. I'm stuck. My bums too big for the hole. Oooh... i think i like it. I think i like it. I think i like it" *rubs herself up and down the pole.*

ooooh, and when Linda does
"I'm miming I'm stuck in a box. oh look, there's a door. Oh look, I walk through it. I'm walking down the street. Oh look there's a disco. C'mon, let's shaft!"



Absolutely love it. James Dreyfus and Kathy Burke are absolutely brilliant.

I thought Kathy Burke was brilliant as well, her and James Dreyfus made such an hilarious double act.

Some more of my favourite quotes are.

Linda "What's it like having a knob?"
Tom "Oh it's great, yeah"
Linda "Yeah? I bet it gives you something to look at when you're bored."

Tom "Wrap it in chip paper and chuck it in piggin canal."

gimme gimme gimme is one of the most horrifically unfunny, dire, painful to watch pieces of television i ever had the misfortune of watching. its awfully, crudely written - pointless, crass gay jokes and all manner of other shite. its terribly acted by a cast that look embarrassed to even be involved...its just awful!
