    Surprised there wasn't already a thread for this, one of the best TV programmes of recent years in my opinion.

    Christmas special starting at 10pm on BBC2, can't wait.

    Thanks mate just set it to record.

    Not sure they will ever beat the silent ep but there have been some great ones.

    Well, I enjoyed that. Not up there with the best perhaps, but still very good.

    Glad it's back, and looking forward to the new series.

    Someone talked over the ending here so I missed what the director was saying during the final scene

    I loved it other than that

    Grr people talking over TV is the reason I no longer watch the Doctor Who Christmas special when it's broadcast. It was essentially me trying to concentrate and restrain my anger over cries of "do you really like this rubbish?", "this looks very silly" etc.

    Bump

    This starts again tonight, all one offs so no need to have seen seasons 1 and 2 but you definitely should.

    Its made by Steve Pemberton and Reece Sheersmith of League of Gentlemen fame.

    Ooh thanks I didn't know it was back (caught the Xmas special similarly by accident) great show, real look forward to tv as you just don't know what you will get but it's almost always great.

    I enjoy these and enjoy most of their work. I would dearly love TLOG series 4. The first 2 are sublime dark comedy, the third was better on repeated viewings but I didn't care for the format change that much.

    ...Shit business

    The third League works really well if you have time to binge watch it. Spread over weeks one part at a time it was awkward fitting all the pieces together

    @simpleexplodingmaybe
    Agree with that, I have watched it several times over the years. I just think the radio show and 2 tv series are of such high quality.

    Go Jonny, go,go,go,go.

    Why was series 3 different again? It's been soooo long since I watched it.

    Inside No.9 was great last night though :D

    It abandoned basically all the characters of the first two series and all the episodes occurred at the same time building to an ending that you only saw the whole of by watching all six episodes as they each had a different perspective on it

    I think last night might be one of the best number 9s so far. Very League and very Tales of the Unexpected

    @simpleexplodingmaybe I literally have no recollection of that. I obviously didn't' enjoy it much either!

    Weird, I've blanked that also. I thought the last series of TLOG was the Papa Lazarou series. To be honest, I've preferred Psychoville to TLOG anyway.

    I don't think I've actually ever seen the third series of TLOG, or the special. Must remedy that.

    @mal That Hitchcock tribute episode of Psychoville is one of the best half hours of television ever.
