No Heroics

Here's today's laugh. To all my British readers, I just want to say I am immensely jealous you have this series on your blessed isle. I first heard about this series from Denis McGrath, and want to thank him for finding it for me. So far, there's no network in Canada that has picked up the 6 episodes of season 1. So until I find it, I have to make myself happy with this unbelievably funny trailer. (Yes, I've watched it half a dozen times now.) I cannot WAIT to see this show!

Makes me proud to be British. Amazingly I didn't know about this TV series either! I'm not living in the UK now, but still - I should know about it. Just discovered the DVD is released tomorrow.

HA! hilarious. I have to find a way to get them online. Or rather try to get a Euro/Region-free DVD player and order from Amazon UK...

GOD, get this online somewhere soon.

6 episodes?!
I only saw the first five.
They were hilariously awesome. I need to find #6 now.

I've watched the first one, and, even though I've never been the biggest fan of British-specific type of humour, this is not bad. It's not laugh our loud but it's definitely something to watch.

I'll be watching the rest five within the next few days!

I can't believe that this completely passed me by!!!! It must have been on a ridiculous time for me to not know about it. I recognize quite a few faces from various UK TV comedies in this brilliant trailer. You got great comedy actors from shows like the cool 'Nathan Barley', 'I'm Alan Partridge', 'Man Stroke Woman' and 'The Office'.
You're absolutely right 'All Bags'...It comes out on DVD here in the UK tomorrow:)

I hope you find it soon Nikki:)

OK, finished all 6 and it's actually part quiet hilarity, part laugh out loud brilliance.

Everyone's got to check it out!

I just love that it's totally taking the piss out of Heroes as well.

@ARC:

If you're not averse to torrent downloading, they are online. That's how got my hands on them.
That's the unfortunate with little known British TV shows, you have to download them or have contacts!
