    The very idea that Iain Lee will probably be the continuity announcer on Dave when the episode is shown.

    Anyone who watches Dave will no doubt have heard his awful announcements. Apparently they even have a writer to write them. Jeeezuuus.

    Here’s an idea – keep the sound turned off on your telebox until Red Dwarf actually begins.

    Honestly, it wouldn’t ruin it for me. The sound of him having to grit his teeth and sound enthusiastic about the show because it’s his only employers’ most valuable property would make the experience of watching BtE an absolute joy even if the episodes themselves are utter shite.

    The term for that is “schadenfreude”, innit? Our joy at his irritation. And yes, it’s fun. Maybe afterward he’ll come here–sorry, one of his fans will come here and register to call us all nerds and twats and twatty nerds.

    More importantly, he thinks Dwarf is “not funny” and “a crock of shit”. So if/when he has to pay it a scripted compliment, we can call him not just a fucking cunt, but a fucking hypocritical cunt.

    Surely if it’s scripted it’s not really his opinion is it? So not hypocritical. It’s ‘Iain Lee’ cuntinuity person, not ‘Iain Lee’ the person.

    No, it just means he’s willing to state opinions he does not believe in for the sake of the yankie dollar.

    Well put. Even if he wasn’t a total dick, entirely unappealing and devoid of talent, I’d still find it impossible to take him seriously because of that. I hope he knows we’re all here laughing at his two-facedness.

    Maybe we can club together and see what we can get him to say for a few hundred quid.

    I suggest you consult this thread (http://www.ganymede.tv/forum/2009/03/moderator-warning-pimping-your-stuff) before you start pimping your butt around.

    But we don’t make public statements saying one thing that contradict an employer’s line that we might have to follow. That would be called a conflict of interests. This is why I don’t review TV things written by Agency clients any more.

    (incidentally, this is all hypothetical, we don’t have a clue what’s going to happen with the continuity. It’s fun to speculate, though.)

    Well, hello there. I only have three conditions for a successful relationship:

    1) You must listen to each and every episode of Shindiggery
    3) You must agree that Red Dwarf is rubbish
    3) You must bring your own PlayStation controller to my all-night Tekken 3 tournaments

    #94238

    1.) I hardly have time to listen to my own podcast.
    2.) Does saying that series VIII is rubbish count?
    3.) Tekken’s not my thing. I’m really more of a Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Super Smash Bros kind of guy.

    Hi Ben. Howya doing?

    1) My mum listens to Shindiggery and she says its some of my best work. I think you should give it a whirl.
    2) No, as the last series of Red Dwarf was the only one I found almost amusing.
    3) I have all the consoles. I once presented a show called Thumb Bandits and after one episode we had a Street Fighter 2 tournament and I played as Ken and I won and then we had Strawberry Nesquik and it was a good day.

    I am Iain Lee. I am him.

    I remember Thumb Bandits. Iain Lee presented a review of “Worms Blast”, opening with the rather ridiculous words, “Worms, in 3D at last!”, forgetting entirely that Worms Blast is neither a 3D game nor, technically, a “traditional” Worms game.

    I don’t think that’s really the same, but I’m damned if I’m going to keep arguing the case for someone I don’t really care for.

    No, I don’t think it’s really the same either. But it’s Iain Lee, so fair argument be damned.

    Haha, is he doing Dave advertisements now? I have a strict ‘mute everything that’s not what I want to watch policy’ so I did not know this.

    Obviously I do not just have the tv switched on with the sound off all day; that would be both stupid and impractical.

    I think Peter Dickson, Mr. E4, would make a ruddy good Dave announcer… plus who wouldn’t want to hear that alter-ego of his use the word Smeg? Dickson for Easter Weekend!!! *starts campaigning on his own for no reason*

    He’s a real nice guy, worked with him on a showreel once about 2 years ago. I mean yeah he’s getting a little overkill now with X Factor, Paul O’Grady, E4, Price is Right, etc… but if people keep offering him the work he’s gonna take it ain’t he.

    He’s appearing in a few E4 ones yeah wearing the purple suit. Best one was the E4 Bunker where Chavs were taking over the country.

    Indeed, it’s not his fault – it’s the attitude that his voice personifies that I have a problem with. Particularly the E4 stuff.

    Patrick Allen did the E4 voice before he passed away, so Peter Dickson started impersonating it for the channel. And then it became that popular other channels started asking him to do it for them.

    Well here’s the bit of voicework he did for me and my ‘production team’ just before I went to Uni. Not the most wonderful work, but for A-Level I think it’s fairly good!

    Plus I feel I wrote some rather good E4’ish lines for him to say if I don’t say so myself! [Boast Mode Cancel]

    He must get pissed off with the Paul O’Grady ones. They mostly consist of ‘STILL TO COME…PAAULINE QUIRKE! SOME BLOKE OFF DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES! AND MORE HOMELESS DOGS!’

    I doubt he gives much of a fuck what he says so long as he gets paid. Bit like Iain Lee. Except to my knowledge Peter Dickson has never publicly proclaimed a hatred for Pauline Quirke or homeless dogs.

    Somebody tell him it’s less embarrassing if you spell it “Dixon”, as God intended.
