    "You're my wife now!!"

    BBC America are finally getting around to showing the third series of this superb British comedy. Much darker and twisted this time around, apparently, with each episode concentrating on particular characters.

    Can't wait!

    First episode is Friday night at 10:20pm et/pt.

    "Does this mean we're really shallow people?"

    "No, no ... { panic look } Certainly not."

    It would be nice if we didn't have to wait so long for new seasons ... er ... series. It is still a BBC station, after all. Oh, well. Better late than never.

    In this house, we watch TLOG after the toads have fallen asleep.

    Sure John. There is a shop run by a couple on the outskirts of town (Royston Vasey) that is run by a (very) strange couple. Often a passing stranger enters the shop and eventually becomes embroiled with the shopkeepers.

    The ensuing dialogue goes something like this:

    Edward (the shop keeper) bustling in: Here, here, what’s all this noise? We’ll have no trouble here.

    explanations ensue

    Edward (explaining) This is a local shop for local people


    This is pretty much a tag line in the show. If you have not seen this series, once you begin,

    You’ll never leave (yet another tag line)

    AAAUUUGHHH!! Oh, God! I completely goofed. For whatever reason, I was associating League of Gentlemen with Manchild. I have absolutely no reason what the hell came over me.

    I'll be leaving now. [​IMG] :b

    Well, watched it last night & absolutely loved it.

    The change to focusing on a subset of characters each week has allowed them to bring out the dark humour & grow the depth of the characters. Yet they've still found time to show the 'background detail' of the town.

    An absolutely hilarious episode too.

    Very good episode. Not as "jokey" as previous series, but excellent in its own way. Can't wait till next week. It's really too bad that WB hasn't released Season 2 on DVD in the States. Season 3 is out already in the UK.
