    Just listening to The Lost Initiative which is Sky One’s official podcast about Lost, presented by Iain Lee*. One of the co-hosts mentions Red Dwarf and Iain went on the following (only slightly paraphrased) rant:

    “Oh, don’t talk to me about Red Dwarf, I’m not going to listen, it’s rubbish. It’s just ‘smeg smeg smeg smeg smeg, oh look a cat, smeg smeg smeg. It’s not sci-fi, it’s not comedy, it’s RUBBISH”.

    Well done Iain Lee, you fucking prick. He hasn’t got a fucking clue about Lost, either, the massive cunt, I fucking hate him. He can’t even spell Ian correctly, the WANKER.

    * These are the things I do when I’m approaching the morning after a night unable to sleep.

    All he seems to do these days is spout ill-informed views on “Top 100” shows.

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – Iain Lee is great when he’s presenting programmes about video games. Put him on anything else, and he’s one of the biggest cocks on telly. I don’t understand why he’s yet to grasp this basic principle.

    Daisy Donovan, Sasha Baron Cohen and Ricky Gervais have all gone on to better (?) things, but where’s Iain Lee. WHO?

    While I don’t need to look to his own lack-of-success to prove his wrongness, I simply never understood the attitude he has (and one he shares with, among others, Andrew Collins). I don’t get how you can watch a full episode and come away with the impression that it’s a lowest-com-denom show based entirely on its own expletive.

    I get if your only experience was Series I that it seemed only the comedy expletives were getting an audience reaction. I get thinking it’s big, knockabout stuff if you only saw VIII. I get it if someone doesn’t like Craig Charles on screen never has, and can’t get past it.

    But how you watch a whole episode without having to acknowledge, at very least, that the show aspires to great ideas, invention, character humour, and smart plotting – that it tries for those things, even if you don’t believe it succeeds – I cannot comprehend.

    #121637

    Yes, it’s odd.

    One other thing I’ve noticed – separate from the Lee/Collins thing – is that some people who were really into the show when they were younger, now look back on Dwarf with something approaching – and sometimes actual – contempt. It’s something I’ve seen people do time and time again.

    Changing tastes in comedy? Sure, and I know I can’t generalise – but I still suspect that with a lot of these people, Dwarf reminds them of what they were like when they were younger – and it’s not someone they like. So they transfer their dislike of themselves at that age onto Dwarf.

    That’s quite simply answered – he’s never actually watched an episode! That’s what I think. He’s probably never watched Lost either. I bet he just bangs on about wanting to know what the ‘monster’ is.

    He spends most of the casts getting excited about his shite and obvious ‘theories’ while at the same time being a prick to the people who call in with genuinely interesting ideas. He’s a complete tool.

    To be fair, the “discovering food” comment made me laugh. Which – hey! – is probably a first for him.

    You know, the fact that he thinks to google “Iain Lee cunt” suggests that he knows that a lot of people think he’s one. So you’d think that he’d have a bit more of a sense of humour about it. After that first comment I thought he was going to go on and be quite funny, but no, he just repeatedly calls everyone fat virgins. You’d think his time could have been better spent wondering WHY there are 44,300 results on Google for that particular search, and doing something about it.

    What amuses me the most, aside from the excellent impressions, is that he posted his podcast on 27th May and it took till 10th August for his one listener to actually act on his instructions.

    “I have watched Red Dwarf the first time round.”

    Um… so did he base his assessment on just the first series? Or even just the first episode?

    I’ll admit, when I watched The End the first time (I’m that old… although I was quite young at the time.) I didn’t like it much either. In fact I didn’t watch it again until Series 3: Marooned… and made complete U turn.

    Ironically if I’d stuck with the first series instead of making a premature judgment call, I’d have gotten to see the excellent Future Echoes….

    (Actually I don’t mind The End now either… )

    Point is, I wonder if he ever even gave the show a chance.

    I think we’re undervaluing the service being done here. After all, there are some seriously ancient jokes being used here, and their preservation is essentially a gift for any antique enthusiast. “Nerds are virgins” hasn’t been a viable gag for years, and without this podcast would no doubt vanish into obscurity.

    If we ask nicely do you think he’ll do some “Backs against the wall” jokes about Teh Gays?

    I thought Iain Lee’s whole shtick was that HE’s a nerd? All his work seems to come from spin-offs from cult shows (Lost podcasts, BBLB) and TV programmes about videogames.

    I’m forgetting The 11 O’ Clock Show, of course. But that’s thanks to years of therapy.

    Iain Lee is a boring, talentless hack who has never made me laugh. He just hangs on for a bit of fame. Chris Moyles is also blessed with cuntishness. Iain, do us a favour, spell your forename (THAT’S YOUR FIRST NAME) correctly and pick a surname that is actually a surname, then type that into Google because it’d be a FUCK of a lot more interesting.

    Cunt (Iain Lee).

    I just saw him on BBLB in the camera-run no less.

    (Oh dear, I just admitted I watch BBLB.)

    I don’t hate Iain Lee like many seem to, but he does remind me a lot of one of those humorous schoolkids. You know, one of those popular boys who gets by in ridiculing those less fortunate… in a geniuinely amusing way admittedly. He even looks like a big teenager.

    EDIT- By my comment on ‘those less fortunate’ I wasn’t suggesting that we of this site are in that category. I was just comparing him to those boys who act in such a way.

    Time for another ringing endorsement, I think…

    Shindiggery, eh? I have been meaning to listen to one ever since he started it. And I can’t be bothered to listen to this one. I will make an extra-special effort to listen to his Virgin show this Sunday, though.

    #83980

    Y’know, I haven’t listened to this podcast of his–partly out of laziness, partly because I only have a shitty 56k connection. However, based on the fact that he’s either so desperate for some kind of attention or he has such a spectacularly thin skin that he’s trying to stir up trouble over an insult on the Internet–one of over forty thousand, no less–I must say that he’s doing absolutely nothing for this particular segment of the international market (i.e., me).

    I just think he’s a dick is all. It’s OK having an arrogant, smug DJ persona actually ON the radio, it was when I realised that’s genuinely who he is that I went off him. It’s like a bad joke. His show’s good, though let’s face, the Breakfast Show IMO has had shit presenters for over a decade, so he was naturally going to be an improvement. Surely no-one’s had the job for this long in years. I remember Mark and Lard doing it for about two minutes, that was before Zoe Ball started.

    His speech in this clip is a (regrettably only) small example of why I don’t like him. Unlike Ricky Gervais (who I would say has a similar marmite factor) who just takes the piss when he receives an award like this, you know that Moyles genuinely means every fucking word. Also, the singing at the end. I remember how bitter he was when he didn’t win that celebrity singing thing, it was either Fame Academy or that duets series (Just The Two Of Us?).

    It’s irrelevant though. He’s good at his job, that’s the important thing. I think I just have a thing against DJs in general (usually Radio 1). Jo Whiley I’m not a fan of at all. I hate how she’s supposedly seen as some kind of important voice in the world of music, it’s complete bullshit. DJs like her are just arse-kissers (or kiss-arse’s, if you like). It would be interesting to see what the shows would be like presented by people with real knowledge of music. Oh but wait, it’s Radio 1. And can someone tell me why the Live Lounge always seems to be someone doing a Coldplay or Amy Winehouse cover? I did like R.E.M. doing a cover of Editors’ Munich though. What I really want to see is Metallica on there covering Gabriella Whatsherfuck’s (Cilmi) Sweet About Me. Incidentally, does anyone actually believe she’s as young as they’re saying she is? She looks young in the videos but onstage she looked about 40 to me!

    >I hate how she?s supposedly seen as some kind of important voice in the world of music, it?s complete bullshit.

    It’s because she used to co-host the Evening Session. She rode on the coat-tails of Lamacq’s knowledge, authority and brilliance, so everyone thought she was this similarly knowledgeable music lover. Plus, she wore Doc Martens and had a husky voice, so the indie kids loved her.

    Then she got her own show and started playing all the most absolutely middle-of-the-road, dinner-party-background shite imaginable. Joss Stone’s cover version of “Fell In Love With A Girl” basically sums up Jo Whiley’s show in its entirety.

    #84012

    PM, that clip of Moyles certainly doesn’t show him at his most modest, but that’s not a problem in my eyes, because he’s right; he’s been good for a long time, and that hasn’t been recognised until now. I have the opposite reaction to you regarding Gervais, but then I haven’t listened to him as much as I’ve listened to Moyles; and perhaps that’s the key to understanding both of them.

    Even though I’m not much of a muso, I’ve never rated Jo Whiley either; as far as I can see, her show consists of her telling the nation that everyone she plays are ‘great’. At least Moyles will say so if he doesn’t like a song on the playlist!

    A little while back I mentioned on here that G&T’s Dwarfcasts had shown me how
    fan’s chatting together could sucessfully make entertaining amature entertainment,
    and that this inspired me in other web projects to get into podcasting.

    By linking to this shithingery podcast, I listened, I now also have a greater appreciation of how one semi-professional broadcaster can almost completely fail to achieve any entertainment value at all in the same media, and so I have gained a useful set of pointers on what to completely avoid when making podcasts.

    What I find funny about this is not so much the fact that he has… “googled cunt, taken supposed offence to being called one by a post here, and then only retaliated by just calling you all cunts”… as it is the fact that my knowledge of G&T’s prefered use of language and humour, especially in headlines, means that
    he probably couldnt have found anyone less likely to be offended by being called that word, and so Iain Lee calling you all cunts, is pretty much like him singing this websites theme tune.

    I find it quite funny, because as I explain to people the story of this Iain Lee podcast, it always starts off with the same questions:

    “have you heard of Iain Lee?”
    “no.”
    “He used to do ‘The 11 O’clock show’, do you remember that?”
    “no.”

    Fuck me…what a rambling, empty podcast. Anyways…the Ganymede and Titan criticisms – most amusing. Like the way he cherry-picks part of posts that aren’t too cutting / close to the truth.

    What a shit of a fellow. At least he has a method of cathartic self-healing when faced with the reality of how many people think he’s a talentless cunt with a shell of a career.

    Iain Lee (of cunt fame) twittered about my blog. Not thoroughly, wittily or eloquently:

    Oh, YOU’RE Mr Carruthers!

    Right, I can finally accept your Facebook request, then ;-)

    Incidentally, on the Iain Lee front : he definitely won’t ever be mentioned in a future Dwarfcast. Noooo.

    Now I feel guilty about rejecting Mr Carruthers’s Facebook request…
