HELLO?!!! NO, I'M COMMENTING ON TRIGGER HAPPY TV!! YES...NO!...YOU'RE BREAKING UP, I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!!!!! If you don't have a clue what I just did, watch an episode of Trigger Happy TV and it'll all make sense. When I first saw it, I was quick to jump to conclusions that it was just some British take on Jackass or some trash like that and quickly dismissed it. Until I really began watching it(I don't remember what originally inspired me to, I think I saw a few more previews)and found comic gold. I understand there aren't any more episodes being made, which is a real shame, but I think I smell a DVD collection certainly worth buying. His gags are smart(but not like a Frasier episode) and yet some of them are rather crude, though he almost never resorts to making jokes about farts and crap. He also never inflicts bodily harm on himself or any other, he simply messes with people's minds and that is something that is very funny to watch. I'm very glad that the episodes that made it here did, but I don't think all of them have. I think we should get at least that. Dom Joly is not a genius, he's just someone who has some hilarious ideas and a craving to mess about with the general public. His jokes mostly work with a great set up and a powerful punchline. If you haven't given it a chance, you definitely should.
