    First two have definitely not grabbed me in the same way as previous episodes. I hope the remaining ones can put in two or 3 to pull the (ridiculously high usually) quality back up.

    Bumping for others seeing as Craigy's "Make X201's post appear as the last one on the page" forum code is still working and doing its job :rolleyes:

    Cool, listening to the referee one now. Though it's a shame they didn't start doing the podcast earlier!

    Yeah I listened to them earlier. To my shame I missed so much of the psychoville references (it was so long ago now, tealeaf) I clocked mr jolly (jelly) but they are such character actors I just thought oh they are doing their old schtick, shame on me.

    Yeah, it's a good listen, and it made me appreciate the referee episode even more. It's actually really well done.

    Edit: I mean, most of them are, but it just shows you how much thought and detail goes into each episode (again, not really surprising).

    Just watched it. Skipped over Psychoville when it first came out and never bothered with it. I though the well of The League had truly run dry that Psychoville just seemed like a poor attempt to keep it going. Based on this episode, I've no reason to watch it.

    I think the ref episode will age better with repeated viewings.

    See I was the opposite, I missed league back then apart from a few bits here and there and the movie. So I went into psychoville from the start.

    Psychoville always felt more colourful and cartoony than the underlying grim northern vibe The League has.

    Itís probably the weakest of the three in a lot of ways but that still puts it well above most telly.

    Although Iíve not watched it through since it was first broadcast so maybe my nostalgia for The League was tainting my enjoyment at the time. Will need to rewatch one day.

    Latest episode could not be more different to last week. Quite the key change. Bleak and brilliant kitchen sink drama

    Not watched last nights yet but only just got around to watching last weeks on Sunday. As I suspected it wasn't a good ep for me, not being someone who enjoyed Psychoville much. The whole episode I thought was very poor with a terrible ending.

    Last night's had a blink and you miss it reveal. Perhaps too subtle for a lot of people.

    Yeah wasnít really taken with that one, which means this is in danger of being a poor series (by their high standards) imo. What was the reveal? Was it the car accident, hence the ďhit and runĒ ending to the loan shark? Or something more subtle?
    Maybe I didnít get something as that was how I felt at the end.
