:D Looks fun!

I watched the first episode of Hemlock Grove, an original Netflix series. Horrible.

I also watched The Expendables, because I was promised more Jet Li than the 2nd. A little more, but I still feel cheated. Less campy than the 2nd one at least.

I've just watched Red Dwarf Back To Earth. I really enjoyed that. Love the Blade Runner references throughout. :lol:

I found it hard to enjoy due to the lack of canned laughter. The new series is worth watching though.

Yes, it's surprising how you miss that canned laughter when it's not there. I've got series X on order at the moment. :D

I've just bought a bunch of cheesy films to cheer up me & Mr Dotsie (the house renovations are a pain a the moment). Tonight, it was Dude, Where's My Car? Not very sophisticated perhaps, but we think it's hilarious :D

Actually, I believe some of Red Dwarf was actually filmed in front of an audience.

Then again, I may be wrong.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

Indeed it was. Most of the early episodes were filmed in front of an audience, so the laughter and reactions were natural. Back To Earth wasn't though and it's surprising how different it is.

I know.

I sometimes feel that maybe I don't "get" the modern sitcoms because there's no audience laughter.

Carry On films were a hoot, but no laugh track. Plenty of facial expressions and sound effects so you know when to laugh though.

Last night, Gladiatress. It's been on my wish list for ages, then I saw Plebs with Doon Makichin looking all Roman, so I bought it finally. Then BBC1 put it on the day it was delivered :roll: Cheesy, brain-free experience, marvellous :)

Innerestin.

Of course, it just could be that I don't find what I'm watching funny - Ricky Gervais has that effect on me!

I kinda like him in films but the only sitcom I found less amusing than the office was the American version, at least in the uk version he shares out the good lines whereas Carrell seemed to keep more for himself, besides which a paper firm in slough is just funny in its own right!
