    As others have said, from what I can surmise, this works as follows:

    Ignorant + loudmouthed + racist + bully = Hitler

    Ignorant + loudmouthed + racist + bully + cancer = Brave Jade

    Just watch this. It speaks for itself. This is the nation’s hero:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPew_SyG6As

    As far as I know, having cancer is neither brave, nor a talent, nor a heroic thing to do. It’s unfortunate and it happens to a lot of people, most of whom are harder working, better people than she ever was. Ah, but she was a bullying ignorant loudmouth on Big Brother. So fuck them, let’s all feel sorry for her.

    Has anyone heard anything about Jade, Max Clifford or any of the red tops that are making a mint out of all this actually giving any money to cancer charities? Must be a hell of an education she’s got planned for her kids, what with the 8 million she already had and the million or so she’s made in the last week.

    I’m also sick of everyone blaming her ignorance on her upbringing, as if that somehow excuses it. I had a rough upbringing too – so did lots of people. We don’t all act like that.

    That’s what I was thinking. From the official site news this week it looks unlikely that there’ll be much in the way of deleted/uncut scenes left over at the end of it all, so I doubt they’ll bother recutting/reformatting it for the DVD.

    To at least have a little positive spin on a show that I think has long since kamikaze-dived head first down the shitter with nuclear powered rocket boots, what does anyone think was the funniest moment?

    Personally for me, as far as slapstick goes, Homer accidentally jumping Springfield Gorge and the aftermath was unbeatable. I guess that was, what, Season 2/3?

    The only ones I’ve seen this season, off the top of my head, are the beard of bees one, the one where Mr Burns managed a basketball team, one of the flashback to Homer and Marge dating ones, and a couple of others that I barely remember.

    Actually, come to think of it, I think the bees and the basketball were the same episode.

    Who the fuck knows anymore?

    Act I: Homer falls down a hole that he creates in the garden while trying to blow up a squirrel with a pipe bomb.
    Act II: Homer discovers a race of sexy leprechauns living in the hole. They take him to the zoo, where he gets raped by another panda. Marge becomes an alcoholic. Bart says a couple of lines.
    Act III: Surf’s up, dudes!

    I’ve noticed a lot of snobbery from some UK sitcom fans where Friends is concerned. No big deal.

    I thought seasons 1-3 were great, then after that, 5 and 7 (‘The One Where They’re Up All Night’, or something like that, was a great bottle show – in fact, these episodes were usually the best imo). The other seasons had their moments.

    >Friends was definitely funny at one stage, but IMO the humour only accounted for around 5% of the reason why most people watched it.

    You must have surveyed some pretty bizarre people to come to that conclusion.

    That one somehow passed me by.

    I did however once watch an episode of this show called Red Dwarf where a guy danced with an unrealistic CGI spaceship and everyone whooped, hollered and applauded for what seemed like minutes.

    >family guy simpsons ect ect because they dont look as fake as the people in friends

    Hmmm. Yes, hanging out with your friends and talking seems fake. Vomiting for 5 minutes, singing ‘surfing bird’ 20 times in a half hour, beating up a chicken and remembering the time you took a shit on Michael Moore’s baseball cap is the real deal. If you associate being good looking with being fake, that says a lot more about you than it does about a TV show.

    My order would be

    V > III > VI > II > I > IV > VII > VIII

    I actually liked seven, especially the Xtended episodes – though whether they should be counted, I don’t know. Tikka makes up in a lot of ways for the shortcomings of that series. I liked Ouroborous, despite the lack of woofers. Epideme and Nanarchy I quite liked…to be honest the only thing that really pissed me off was Mr Wacky Robot/Menopausal Kryten. Not funny, grating, seemed to go on forever.

    So the only series I didn’t like was Eight, which I should shut up about I guess. But I just fucking hated it, and still do. I sat there, open mouthed and wide eyed, like someone catching their grandparents doing BDSM. Strangely unable to turn away, stomach churning wondering what the next travesty would be. And then a dinosaur stomps in.

    Five is definitely the one where everything gelled perfectly. Great stories, great jokes, good setups…just amazing.

    So now if you say the new script’s great, we can all wonder if it’s ‘great like series 8’ or actually worth watching.

    On a related note, I saw Pete (1 and 2) the other night for the first time since they first aired. I didn’t even watch them when I bought the DVDs. To my surprise, it was even worse than I remembered.

    I never really thought of Kochanski as especially self-doubting or superficial…maybe I’m forgetting things. Though to be honest I think one of the biggest let downs of VII/VIII is that we didn’t really get to know her properly.

    She could have been a great character if a plot device had been found to expand on her past like Lister and Rimmer’s were so effectively in the early episodes.

    I wouldn’t consider the novels canon at all.

    >Erm, pretty much the entirety of the second book is made up of ?a?, you big fool.

    I remember thinking all the Bedford Falls and Juanita stuff was pretty great.

    I’ve definitely never seen Danny with hair like that. A rehearsal, perhaps?

    All the French covers are gobsmackingly awful. I wonder how sales are over there.

    Let’s face it, sometimes people just can’t work together long-term anymore.

    Perhaps the comfort-zone for Bodysnatcher was established by the fact that it was something that would only be consumed by hardcore fans, whereas a TV comeback after a 10 year gap is a whole ‘nother level of pressure.

    Don’t doubt it. Soap fandom is just more socially acceptable than sci-fi/sitcom fandom for some reason.

    I paid 120 euros last week for the David Lynch Lime Green Collection.

    And also, fuck Blu-Ray.

    I don’t mind either of them much. They’re OK, not great.

    Alan Carr’s Celebrity Ding-Dong is a huge pile of festering shite though.

    I saw the original Jurassic Park when it was in cinemas, loved it, and have never bothered to see either of the sequels (or rewatch the original). I doubt that’s particularly rare. I must admit, the original appeal to me was simply ‘I want to go to the cinema and see dinosaurs’, keeping in mind I was 13 at the time.

    I also rented E.T. when I was a kid because I wanted to see the alien, and Jaws because I wanted to see the shark. Never re-watched either of them either. To me, that’s what Spielberg represents – the popcorn carnival attraction.

    >But even stranger is the fact that it?s still considered to be a cult show – and by implication only appealing to a minority audience – even after the ratings for VIII.

    Ratings don’t seem to come into it anymore. I think to most people these days cult = 1) devout following leading to conventions + 2) slightly nerdy premise.

    Hence Doctor Who is a cult show, Coronation Street isn’t. Ah well.

    Just listened to it. Great job SP. The interviewer was a bit of a dick to say the least.

    It always seems to be the case though, with fans of cult shows. Strange, condescending attitudes from interviewers and all that.

    Still, we should be thankful that our piddly little show even crossed the radar of such a broadcasting legend.

    I love Infinity and BTL. Last Human, not particularly, and Backwards, not in the least.

    I’ll be hoping for Howard’s involvement…but at the moment, rightly or wrongly, a lot of us think that this is going to be a Series 6 style episode. I seem to think little music was used throughout most of that series?

    >I would have wanted as many of the old cast members and characters as possible in the specials? this includes any version of Holly, any version of Kochanski, and everyone else. I find it a little sad. For the ?special specials? it doesn?t matter so much, but a new episode? Hmmm.

    To be honest I’m glad it’s been stripped back. I thought having a larger cast in Series 8 really weakened the chemistry between the core group. Still, it’s a shame that there’s no Hattie or Chloe there (as for Norm, he feels sorry enough for himself).

    >I mean, I?m excited for the new episodes for sure but I have a feeling that once they have aired we will all be agreeing that (good or bad) any further episodes will need more money behind them.

    That depends on the writing. How much can ‘Marooned’ have cost to make? And who’d be disappointed with a ‘Marooned’?

    It’s a shame, for sure. Sure, she wasn’t the best character, but I’d say that was more due to her being so poorly written than any fault on Chloe’s part. I thought she brought a lot of warmth and charisma to the part.

    I wonder how/if they’ll explain her absence.

    I’ll be hugely surprised if Kochanski is in the new episodes. The general consensus (i.e. Bobby Llew’s Twitter, a few articles, Norm’s post) seems to suggest just the four core Dwarfers.

    5, definitely. Some of the best storylines, and by far the most consistent series in my book.
