the 2006 episode makes you realise how good this is.
I watched the new 2006 episode last night and it brought a tear to my eye. It was so moving. It highlighted for me that much of television comedy works on nasty, ironic humour. EG: I liked Extras, but the relentless gay and disability jokes wear you down. The Extras boys should take a leaf out of the Royle Family scripts. The strength of the Royle Family was it it was just well observed and faithful to what the UK is all about. The small conversations that are really hidden code for live and death issues.
Last night's episode was a real treat, let's hope they do another one soon. Fingers crossed.
