So, I take it you're talking about a show on British telly?

ETA: Presumably this (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1305562/). Yes, that looks interesting. I hope it becomes available on DVD for the U.S. market, or shows up on BBC-America.

(Did you know, BBC-America censors shows for broadcast in the U.S.? Apparently the feeling is that Americans are too fragile to handle the sight of bare bums.)

This makes me hate Latin American cable television and their endless love for US television. Makes me miss back when there was that one channel with a contract with BBC.

Hmmm.... I can't see Psychoville getting on American TV, to be honest. It's far too, well, rude. And that's just for starters.

I love this show. Especially Mr Jelly and the clown funeral. I can just imagine a remake for the American market :D I wonder who they'd get to play Freddie Fruitcake.

Favourite bit?

'Jelly?'

'No, it's trifle.'

Favourite bit?

'Jelly?'

'No, it's trifle.'I love trifle. And custard. And Cadbury's. Blood pudding. Oh, and stout. Gained five pounds on a week's vacation in England and Wales.

I bet you did! Not the best of diets.

Just be glad you didn't visit Scotland. They do deep fried battered Mars Bars....

Oh my lor... Poor Mr Lomax!

And how did they talk Hancock's family into letting them do that? LOL!

Is that you, Tealeaf?

Since they seem to be killing everyone off, it doesn't look good for a third series.

And was that Herrick running the Hoyti Toyti toy shop?

Yes it was! Jason Watkins was brilliant as usual!

And I wasn't expecting the Tony Hancock twist at all.

I did wonder where they were going with the Tony Hancock twist. It is a bit random and I can't see the resemblance myself.

If Mr Jelly is going to die I'd rather have him around until the last episode. I don't think I'd like a jelly-free Psychoville.

And I know Iíve seen that Iranian bloke who married Hattie before but I canít remember what in.

He looked familiar to me too. But can't think where from.

I've unfortunately missed most of it so far this series, but do like it. Perhaps not quite as much as the League, but nearly. I miss some of the old locals . . .

I kind of went off the League when Herr Lipp came into it. He was just too slimy for me.

My favourite was Papa Lazarou. Hello Dave!

Oh my lord! Bloody hell...

That bit with David and his mother. I was laughing, crying and feeling sick all at the same time.

Brilliant!

Yes it was. Happy to see Mr Jelly and Mrs Ladybird face live to see another day :)

I love that David not only survived but found a replacement carer!

Just saw this week the first series, brilliant stuff! I love the fact one can never be sure when to laugh or be horrified...

I know! Sometimes I felt really uncomfortable for laughing but couldn't help it. And othertimes I was just 'yeeuuuuhhhhh!'

Are they showing it on TV there?

Huh, I wish. They barely showed Doctor Who on cable here. I found it online after some friends' recommendations. Finally catching up with many shows neglected by TV here.

Any recommendations for britcoms? I checked it The League of Gentlemen and thought it was just too off for me.

What I like about Psychoville is that it's not only funny but makes you care about the characters, knows the genre is making fun of and has an actual, engaging plot.

And I can't talk well enough about the characters. It's like a bunch of Stephen King/David Lynch rejects taken to their logical conclusion.

Hmmm.... most Britcoms tend to be a bit old fashioned really. If you like them surreal, there is a few but I'll have to have a think.

Alright! Some have mentioned me The Mighty Boosh and Flight of the Concords, but I haven't check them out yet. Also, I'm quite a fan of That Mitchell and Webb Look.

Flight of the Conchords is very funny. But The Mighty Boosh was too surreal for me. I found it silly.
