    Did you realise that the blue woman was Lord Varys from Game of Thrones! You are right though it's all about taste though I love all the comedies you mention. I do like a good bit of slapstick. After all, that's what Fawlty Towers was (albeit incredibly well written).

    "Hiya Jim"

    If that's everyday life for you then it's hardly a surprise that you can't suspend disbelief for 4 minutes whilst watching a comedy programme.

    If I'd have sat with the missus and kids moaning that "the monkey wouldn't have got out, this is daft", they'd all disown me for being a miserable twat.

    I think you will be in the minority if you're going to claim car share is a better comedy than the royle family. As I put above it's just taste and in different programmes I can live with daft stuff, my issue with this programme is it could of been something very funny and close to home to a lot of commuters. Instead it just turned a bit daft, some will like it some won't.
     
  4. On one hand you say comedy is a matter of taste, one the other you say it could have been funny.

    Many people found it very funny.

    I don't think Car Share was better than the Royle Family but there were parts of it that were ludicrous. Tell me what's more likely, a monkey escapes a safari park on a car or a bloke gets a turkey stuck on his head on Christmas day?

    I thought that scene was shite but it doesn't mean the entire thing was shit.

    Another well written series by Peter Kay. Sian Gibson was brilliant, a very sexy lady.

    I think many people was mixed on this, many of which are Peter Kay fans like myself. The specials for the Royle Family were not as funny and I didn't enjoy them as they got daft with the turkey/ golden egg cups, the first two series especially were brilliant though. I don't think car share was shite because of the monkey, I thought it was just shite in general and was amazed so many people found a monkey funny. It just all was a bit daft for me which could of been better for myself personally given the idea it originated from.
     
  7. Fair enough.

    League of Gentlemen was funnier than both anyway. ;)

    It's hard to watch when you know where it's being filmed. He does some odd routes to get to work!
