Just saw the trailer for the new series. Thats right folks this has got a new series. In times of hardship and austerity its good to know that this comedy gem will be on again to lighten the mood. I predict a big increase in suicide rates up and down the country. "

Nothing wrong with Jim. He 'fixed it' for me to milk a cow blindfolded in the basement of his country house..... "

Its got a lot better again. Now i watch it and remember the funny bits rather than the bits that were shit. Or not shit, just not as good as before. I thought that it might be headed in a Simpsons direction ie complete shark jump. But, it hasnt and its back on top after a small skip over a goldfish. "

@Brian1, Yeah but Woody seemed genuinely a bumbler and didnt get old like Charlie or Allen on two and a half men. It was sad that Nick had health issues and died making a replacement necessary. One of my favorite Woody scenes was when he was singing a song to swoon Kelly... Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly, Kelly,..... "

Never jumped but its very repetitive. Anything from Conway Twitty to chicken fights now bore me to death. Remember those old singing and dancing piano playing guys too? They were shit. Still the best cartoon on telly and i havent noticed any of these scenes for a long time now which is great. "

The dumb contestants made the show. Richard Obrien was better than Ed but it didnt really matter. "

When The Hoff managed to lasso and escaped bull and saved the damsel in distress on the beach. The damsel was infact attending a High School Reunion that night. The very same one The Hoff was attending. Where did the bull come from? I cant remember and even if i did it wouldnt make this story any more plausible. "

The more I watch the Tudor-Pole episodes the more I like them for what they are. He's not O'Brien but he's his own style - like talking to Barbara. Did prefer O'Brien & Mumsie/Auntie Sabrina but the more I watch Ed's (in isolation) the nearer to 50-50 it becomes for me. "

Meant to be 4 nerds/geeks/losers who know nothing about girls trying to get laid/relationships/love etc. Now, as I write all but Raj have someone & the comic book store guy is upgraded in the cast list. Whilst some girlfriend episodes are funny, the series isn't as good as it was, but getting nr to Shark time! "

Game is now dragged out for about an hour. You could open all the boxes in about 20 mins tops! Cut the crap & play the game! "

Wouldn't say it's jumped, but now the animations are digital instead of actual drawing it's somehow lost it's visual appeal. Too much Conway, too much chicken fight, too much paedo stuff, but otherwise funny, but not quite as funny as it was. We need quality not quantity Seth. "

Has to be with the birth of the big baby! Just wasn't funny after that. Mindy was my masturbatory fantasy lady! MMMMM! So young, so American & so nice! "

Why would Jessie's father let the local horny boy climb in through his daughters bedroom window whenever he felt like it? Zack would sleaze over any of the Bayside girls without a second thought. Mr Spano shouldve put bars on the windows to keep him away. And another thing, did AC Slater know his buddy was creeping around in his chicks bedroom in the evenings? I very much doubt it. "

Still a while before it all kicks off for 2014 and its made front page news! Some bullshit about Cheryle coming back again. Important news of the day a judge from a talent show is coming back on a talent show she used to be a judge on. Its just all about the judges anything else is BS. And anyone who thinks this crap is still about talent needs to wise up. "

Noel was definitely at his most smug during this phase of his life. It was impossible for him to hide how pleased he was with himself every Saturday night. But it had to end sometime Noel and i remember your sad depressed face as you said your goodbyes to us on the final episode. Thats the great lasting memory of House Party for me. I will always thank you for that. "

Britain hasnt got any talent. But it seems like afew Europeans have. Those Europeans coming over here stealing our talent show places and making shadows to music. This countries gone to the dogs. :) "

If Little Mix were in the finale of BTG, why wasn't Tulisa performing too, instead of Cheryl Cole (who I understand gave another stunning live performance)? OOOOOOOOOOOOH yeah, that's right. "

It was shite from the get go. Blobby's arrival and take over just heeped even more shite ontop of it. And the guests were shite too. Ding Dong!!! 'Oh who can that be at the door? Oh.......... its Chris fucking Akabusi !! "

Before the rise of blobby House Party was a great bit of saturday night entertainment. The Gotchas and Wait till i Get You Home were two highlights for me. Although The Gotchas became a blobby thing too didnt they? Noel didnt seem to realise there was fuck all funny about blobby. NOTHING!! Its like seeing your football teams mascot dancing on the touch line as you are losing 3-0 to your rivals. You just want to scream 'FUCK OFFFF' at the buffoon in the costume. Blobby ruined it. Correction: Noels Blobby Obsession ruined it. "

Should Noel Fielding get a second series of this? Or should we all chip in together to get him the help he so desperately needs instead? This wasnt a comedy sketch show it was actually a cry for help from a man with serious mental health issues. I wish you all the best Noel i really do :( "

Its harmless fun is all. Let the chicks get dolled up in fake tan and short skirts. Getting picked for a date with a stranger on a dating show is their one chance to achieve something. Ten years down the line they will be using this as a means to skip the queue in night clubs 'Dont you know who i am???. I went to Fernando's 15 years ago on Take me Out you know' "

In KK2, Danny boy's getting the snot kicked out of him. Miyagi starts twirling that drum thing, and Danielle works out how to beat Chozen. In KK3, Larusso is repeatedly humiliated throughout the film, and throughout most of the final tournament, until he follows Miyagi's advice to let his best karate out and performs the kata to win by throwing Barnes. WTF is Miyagi playing at? He's quite happy to let his protégé be beaten almost to death in Okinawa, or be kicked in the nads in full view of the tournament crowd, only offering a cryptic comment that Daniel's got to work out to achieve final victory. In his moment of need, your pupil needs clear guidance, not brain-teasing puzzles, Miyagi-San. What a shit mentor Miyagi was. "

Funny in small doses. I would agree with the 'comedy snobbery' comment below. I know alot of people who apparently hate this, yet they havent ever seen an episode. Seems like its fashionable to turn your nose up and slag this off. Its slightly old fashioned and the audience do find 'FECK' hilarious for some reason but give it a chance and you may be surprised. There are quite afew laugh out loud moments in every episode. Its not the classic that some people say but at times its a very funny show. "

I like it when Rick laughs at his own jokes. It makes me laugh too. Hes like Mutley, except with less hair and more fat. And the awkward look on the customers face as he chuckles away makes me laugh even more :D :D "
Posted by Mariana on the Pawn Stars topic.
Its not good fun. These chicks are so thick it drives me crazy. Even Paddy must feel pretty clever making conversation among this lot. Be like Stephen Fry having a debate with Joey Essex. Paddy must finish filming an episode of this and just piss himself laughing that hes getting paid to do this. Easiest money ever! "
