    Anyone here watch the 4th series of this which has just ended?

    Its surely one of the greatest ever programmes on the BBC.

    Stunningly well scripted and acted.

    If anyone is going to watch it on iplayer I strongly suggest that you watch the 6th episode first as the only complaint I have about the programme is that I was very confused as to what they all do exactly.

    Er,but now Im not.

    Well,I AM,but thats part of the joke-what the fuck do these people actually do!?

    I love it but have because the BBC are such a bunch of useless bastards, I only spot it when it's halfway through a series and, unlike Sky1 and Atlantic and others, the BBC doesn't tend to repeat stuff. I'm not a big fan of iplayer so this was my first request for xmas - the box set (in fact, it's probably the only xmas present I've asked for in the last 10 years.

    Looking forward to sitting down and going through the lot.

    Malcolm Tucker has to be one of the greatest characters ever penned

    Politics. This man swears more than me. His reaction to a knock on the door was "Come the fuck in or fuck the fuck off"

    Probably why I've not seen it, one mention of politics and thats me offskies.
    The same reason I have never watched 'yes prime minister' 'the west wing' and 'The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin'.

    Don't think of it like that slick-just try to imagine Steve UK working in the same office-doing a well paid job-with ODM and ODM is his superior and bullying is endemic.

    Then add 2 useless women,another 8 useless men with various faults,a token black guy and 1 attractive young relatively competent woman:thumb

    I'm not as such but do work in Education and take the odd class here and there when needed. I could probably give them some belting story lines.
