22288 Not Going Out
Lee Mack's comedy vehicle is now on its 9th season. Do you know anyone who has ever made a habit of watching this thing? Why wasn't this cancelled years ago?

The early series were okay, but it all became tired fairly quickly. Apparently he's now somehow married to the girl and has kids. I've clearly missed something, but evidently it's turned into a generic domestic sitcom which presumably is still on the air for the same reasons My Family refused to die.

You need to remember we're not normal people. The very fact we know about this website and understand how to use it makes us outsiders.

Millions of people watch this show, and probably enjoy it at least a little bit. Probably nobody thinks it's the pinnacle of comedy, but most people's idea of a Saturday night is having a couple of chuckles at the telly, rather than posting about piemasters on an imageboard. You just need to step outside of your own perspective a little bit.

Guilty pleasure of mine and while it's not what it was, it's still better than what My Family eventually turned into or what Miranda was from the start.

Let's be honest, most mainstream comedy is a bit shit, isn't it? That's why Stuart Lee whinges so much that he can't get on telly, and why the C4 of today wouldn't touch Brass Eye with a 10 foot nonce pole.

Feel free to call me a cunt but Lee Mack gives me a chuckle and the missus can follow the English without subtitles (unlike say QI or HIGNFY) so it's one of those programs that goes on iPlayer between sex and my sleeping pills kicking in.

While we're steering this boat out into the bay of cuntoffs, can anyone name five original BBC1 comedies in the last year that were any better? Everything half decent seems to be on BBC3 to be honest, and most of that is tame even for a "boring old cunt" like me with my mid to late 90s comedy.

Rule of thumb: the counter culture becomes the over the counter culture with sickening alacrity, every time.

Sage for ramble.

Vicky Coren has described Lee Mack as "incredibly intelligent" on at least two occasions. I trust her judgement, but he does a bloody good job of hiding it.

He's obviously the quickest wit in the room on WILTY?. And phoning in some shitty sitcom to get rich doesn't seem like a dumb move to me.

Agreed.

Comedians like Are Stew a may be respected for testing the boundaries of their art and challenging perceptions at the cost of easy money, but from another perspective, it may well be more commendable to realise that you can live a fulfuling life by churning out consistently decent sitcom scripts, without ever having to worship at the altar of art or making a statement to quell your own ego. It's far more progressive to realise that any art you make is nothing other than an attempt to feel useful or important, when really you could just be living a live full of the financial freedom that catering to the mainstream can bring you.

Or 8 out of 10 cats does countdown when he's on, for that matter.


Like Sean Locke I prefer Lee Mack on the panel shows quipping off one liners or minor anecdotes rather than standup (for Locke) or Sitcom (for Mack).

Interestingly Locke had a very interesting sitcom that needs rewatching.

with every hdd crash I suffer I lose a little more of what is getting harder and harder to torrent.

Top lad. I know what I'll be watching during my next insomnia session. I'll see if I can't find a torrent and/or my local copies too.
