Quotes

Annie: We're all just here to learn a lesson, and once it's sunk in we move on to a higher plain.
Sally: Where do you pick up this crap?
Annie: On my mystic mug. A friend brought it back from Goa, it's covered in holy writings and when you drain the dregs you can see Vishnu giving you four thumbs up.

Finally a good britcom!!!
21 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

Located somewhere between The Royle Family and The Office, The Smoking Room has it all. Although many of the characters are stereotyped the jokes come thick and fast. As in The Royle Family the episode usually starts with a joke and ends in the punchline. For example in the first episode the characters were trying to remember the theme from Little House on the Prarie and in the end someone remembered it and in the most recent one everyone was looking for a light and in the end they found one. Robert Webb seems to be proving himself as a breakout sitcom star after starring in the underrated Peep Show. While veteran actors such as Paula Wilcox and Leslie Schofield are joined by lesser known actors who are just as funny. In the end this isn't as good as The Royle Family or The Office but better than most of the sitcom dirge that is churned out at the moment.

Well done BBC!!!
