I can confirm that there are at least two of us.
Didn't he also say that he was bored with his life and wanted an adventure?Yes that's what I thought. It's only a throwaway line but they don't waste a word in these scripts.
Why did no one die this week? Not really that bothered as I love this show.
Only seen the two so far; Bill and Riddle. Both excellent. Can't believe I've missed out on this so far (probably because I'm the only person in the solar system who doesn't find League of Gentlemen funny so didn't think I'd like it)
So, is this worth a watch then?
I, too, have chosen to ignore this on the basis that the League of Gentlemen was no way near as clever and funny as it thought it was.
I can understand you disliking League... While I largely liked it (I'm not keen on all the first series, but I think it improved) I can see how it would be very very much a matter of taste. (Okay, I guess most things are, but League... is goes to a very silly and extreme place which can be particularly polarising.
Inside No. 9, while also being a black comedy, in many ways, is not as extreme. Some of the episodes are even quite gentle, although many do go to a very dark place.
In short, I shouldn't let The League of Gentlemen put you off. Or Psychoville* for that matter. Even if you don't like all the episodes, as an anthology series, you'll likely find something to like, much like our beloved comic.
*Although I really lied that too, but it's different enough.
