Little Britain goone

Post by C69 »

What a bunch of namby pamby middle class liberal arseholes.
The series has been pulled from Netflix an dthe Beeb because of the acter playing several characters in Black Face.
Pathetic metropolitan middle class liberal values.

I personally found Dafydd far more offensive and the faux Welsh accents appalling.
Faux Welsh voice sickens me.

I have only ever seen Little Britain in clips of the show. Never seen the black face sketch. Coincidence I've just a few minutes ago seen a Harry Enfield blackface sketch taking off Dragons Den. I didn't think much of that.

Bonkers Little Britian is taken off. It was a pissing taking show, it took swipes at everybody. The SJW bunch on twitter have been trying to get this done for a few weeks/months now.

Again this is the sort of thing that SJW's will think is great, but will just end up turning off great swathes of people.

They only ever seen interested in attacking women who dare define what a women is. Also they have their hands full with JK Rowing these days.

I was watching the friends episode with Chandler’s dad recently and pretty much all of the jokes were transphobic by today’s standards - recent enough too. Gingers are the only group you can take the piss out of now.

I could never bear to watch an episode, you could tell ti was shite, it looked shite and any clip I saw of it was shite. However I suspect there is an element of "It's ok to do white face" around given how it never criticised when it's done.

The guy who played Eddie went to Australia and starred in their version. I don't think it had the race bit to it thoguh. Although i did have a show called Kingswood County which was very similar to our Love thy neighbour. I saw that in 1999 and couldn't believe they were still running repeats of it.

Surely it'ss a direct attack on British culture to ban piss-taking?

I say British, but I'm not really sure that the Scots ever got the joke 8)

Can you still watch Come Fly With Me?

Crazy to think this was aired on the BBC only 8 or 9 years ago.

Couldn't watch it at the time. It really was offensive to go along with being utter shit.

So did a lot of the 70s shows that have forever been tainted as racist. Love thy neighbour was just awful shite but there were shows like Rising Damp where the vast majority of the piss taking was at the expense of the small minded racist and bigoted attitude. Unfortunately the greater public aren’t credited with the intelligence to pick up on nuance any more.

They are transvestites rather than boob mickey lads. I would have thought the poorer cousin to the lads who have made an effort and got themselves a big nips. There was a lad who used to go around Dalkey that dressed in old thick woollen granny skirts and had a shawl and he would go into the Supervalu and ask for a pound of ham in a deep baritone voice. Never failed to make me snigger but mainly as why go for the dressing up as an old pissy granny vibe.

You wonder if the reason we dont get good comedies anymore is because writers are treading on eggshells with what is and isn't acceptable constantly.

What was the last good British sit com? The Office?

'They' went apeshit over Robert Downey Jr in Tropic Thunder as well. Of course, 'they' didn't understand the nuance of the joke.
