Ooohh... I can't wait for this either. :D

I kinda get sick of Little Britain after a while, but every so often I get back into it and it's usually hilarious.

Yeah I know what ya mean. Apparently as the characters go abroad it makes it different. It's in 2 parts by the way. The 2nd is on later in the week.

That was quite good I thought. After over 4 years of the show this was exactly the 'direction' for a 1-off-special. 'Spot on' idea

One thing I didn't understand was Ronnie Corbett suppose to be playing himself?

It was amazing. So fresh and funny constantly. It was my favourite thing on TV all day.

I loved Carol standing with "sunseekers" written in reaaaaally tiny writing. Then crying over the complaint "dirty shitters"

Vicki was fantastic.

"Everyone knows she had a back street boob job and now her tits look like the Mitchell brothers"

Daffyd "ballbag botherer" handing out the flyers. :lol: The Nun "I'm looking for some fanny fun"

Bubbles was freaking hilarious too doing the striptease! I couldn't stop laughing. :lol: :lol:

"Whats your name?"
"Phil"
"You took that a bit literally"

I can't wait for the next episode.

Oh, it was incredible.

Carol Beer was fantastic all the way through. I loved it when she let the passengers get off the coach and then she said "Carlos, vamos" and the coach drove away. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Bubbles De Vere has always been my favourite sketch, and last night was no exception.

"Ferrero Rocher. He must be doing well!" :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

It was all just amazing. 8-)

It wasn't bad at all really. I still think Lou & Andy and Daffyd are now the most boring characters in it, my favourites last night being Marjorie, Vicky and Carol - "dirty shitters" was the best line of the night :lol:

I was just watching the episode on youtube again. :lol: :lol:

Monotone voice: "My name is Carol, I'm here to make sure you have fun, fun, fun.........fun. If you look to your left you'll see Spain. If you look to your right you'll see...Spain"

Can't wait for the next episode.

Split into two halves the 1st half was quite good. Was disapointed with tonights episode. Had it all been shown as one hour long episode (that was the original plan) wouldn't of given it very good marks overall.

Started out promising but it took one hell of dive in part two. Like the press originally said, Had to potential to be good but wasn't.

Yeah I agree with that.

Only a few bits from tonight's episode actually made me laugh.

Both episodes are repeated tonight on BBC1. I think I might tape.

The first was hilarious. The 2nd was good in place. Dawn French as Vickis Mum was hilarious but too short.

Loved Julia!

"I've been cover girl on Russian Tatler and Russian Take A Break"

"Snow White Does 7 Dwarves"

"I hope it's the little man come to gang bang me" :o

It was more shock than funny, like the Texan Fat Fighters lady. :lol:

"Pat or Patty"
"It's Pat"
"OK Patty"

Lou and Andy are boring, I can't believe they're the main characters. The Prime Minister sketch was just shock-funny. :D :D

Predictable and boring. Us the viewer meeting Vicky's mother could of been made into *Sigh SOOOOO much more.

Well yeah, like I say it was too short. It should have been longer.

And also Peter Kay was underused. The sketch was basically all about Julia Davis (ain't complaining though)! :lol:

Oh "It's Mel Smith" :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ditto, the first episode was better. What the hell was happening in the Pirate Memory Game sketch - I didn't really get it when he chased him, Mr Mann and Roy are usually my favourite characters too. Lou and Andy are SOOOOOOO boring as well. Andy was so much better when he barely said anything.

First 2 series were great. Series 3 was predictable and just a platform for catchphrases.

I rewatched all of this last year and it's still absolutely genius. Yes, some jokes wore very thin but it's an all-time classic.

Favourite sketch, mainly because of that shocking line of racism at the end :o :lol:
