Jam and Jerusalem

Do you think The Good Life could be remade, with me or Dave playing Tom Good (maybe not!)? If you have seen something on TV or heard something on the radio recently that you want to talk about, tell us here.

saw the first episode last week, and was singularly unimpressed - thought I'd give it another twirl tonight - I really won't be bothering again! :?
Having had a good chortle at Ann Widdecombe on "Have I got News for You", I was in the mood for something else funny - it was flat, boring, horribly self-indulgent, and to be frank, just wince-makingly awful! :wink:

Damn... I missed it!

I enjoyed last weeks episode... quite unusual for me as I don't watch telly very often.

Ahh well... life goes on.

I saw the first half of the first episode and decided not to waste any more time on it - a waste of good comedy actors in stereotyped roles.

It's no-brainer tv when you need it - between HIGNFY and QI (I think). I like the theme song, but agree witht he whole stereotype thing. Still watch it as no-brain tho :geek:

No, it's still pretty poor - but I watch it just to listen to Kate Rusby
