Mock The Week

(March 2006)

nwtv2003 Granada North West Today
This is a programme I haven't had chance to watch before, but merely caught it by accident last night and I PMSL, it was that good, I have to agree with all of the comments on here so far.

Liked the bit towards the end where they all had to suggest, What you would never hear a Newsreader say, and what you would never hear a TV announcer say, which proved to be rather hilairious, with a fair bit of ITV-bashing in there might I add.

When this comes back for a new Series, then I will be watching.

Thing is, how much did you agree with them ? Smile

Quite alot, I find myself watching nothing on ITV1 most of the week these days. Laughing

Though I thought one of the best clips was when they showed a clip of David Mitchell (or Mark out of Peep Show) going on how stupid John Prescott looked when he was racing with aload of kids. Rolling Eyes

And he was absolutely right with what he said.

"He's the deputy Prime minister for goodness sake! Why is he running in a race with a bunch of schoolkids? Of course you've pulled a bloody muscle, you're overweight and trying to run wearing a heavy black coat!"

Yeah, Lol

"If you have been affected by any of the issues raised in Balamory, you may wish to call the BBC Action Line"

or earlier on last week when they were talking about Bird Flu

"You're watching ITV1. Why are you doing that? I've got the listings in front of me and we've got nothing!". - Genius! Laughing

I think Mock the Week is good enough to go on BBC One in the 10.35pm slot. Are there any ratings around for it?

I've prefered the second series to the first, it's been refined and some of the more contravied bit taken out. Previously there was too much that was there just so Rory Bremner could show off.

It owes a lot to HIGNFY - topical satirical news game (as opposed to quiz) but with a bit more scope for pure humour by very talented wits - Rory Bremner's impressions are a bonus. A suitable vehicle for Dara O'Brein, and great to see people as varied as Jo Brand and David Mitchell given a real opportunity to do what they do best - Peep Show aside of course

David Mitchell is turning into a bit of a star, he storned it on HIGNFY a while back and has been great on every other panel show he's appeared.

I would suggest that he is better doing his freeform improvised flights of fancy on such shows than he is on The Peep Show, especially as Mitchell and Webb don't wrtie TPS. If you get a chance to hear theirRadio 4 sketch show (which is transfering to TV soon) listen it's superb

Fans may be interested to know that there are tickets available to a 'warm-up night', before the series starts:
