Grab BS: Educating an Italian in Brit Comedy! (66* d) RE: BS: Educating an Italian in Brit Comedy! 20 May 08

By all means, LH - and I do when they're on, or at least change channels. :-)

Like Gurney, I can't hack "Some mothers do 'ave 'em" either.

Mr Bean works for me in small doses. The whole point of it is that it's a modern-day silent-film setup, or maybe more accurately a live-action cartoon. So there really is no attempt at portraying Mr Bean as a person because there doesn't need to be - he's no more supposed to be a real person than Mickey Mouse or Roadrunner.

And most of Red Dwarf works for me too. The point of Chris Barrie (Rimmer) in Red Dwarf is that he's a prat, sure, but he's not in any position of seniority which justifies his pretensions, nor will he ever be; unlike Brittas or Fawlty where we're expected to believe in the character having reached that position. He's not particularly a bully, he's just an idiot. If anything bores me on Red Dwarf, it's the endless Lister-is-a-slob jokes - thanks, we got the message by the second series.
