2) The conceit that they know something about fine wines and cuisine, yet they only drink plonk that comes from the Hypermart for 1 euro a bottle.  Or worse cordials made from flowers or some such nastyness. Or maybe thats just MY relatives. 

Man, I must say I miss the place though.  5 years and counting since my last visit.

31. (I think) - Bruce Forsythe and all the other ageing entertainers still on TV that are considered "institutions"

32.  Channel 4 - it hacks all the good US TV it shows to pieces so it can show them before 9:00pm

33.  10 unemployed people for every job going yet my targets at work are to get 45% of the unemployed service users at work into jobs

35. Comedians that provide commentry to home movie shows and try in vain to upstage the clips of people falling over or being spat upon by camels (Les Dennis and Justin Lee Collins spring to mind)

Harry Hill doesn't try in vain to upstage the videos - he succeeds, so no. We're not agains't YBF (unless there's Lisa Riley repeats on Dave or something).

36. British Comedy in general (frankly, if it wasn't for the aforementioned Harry Hill, I'd say the term is an oxymoron). Only Fools And Horses and Rising Damp are not funny any more! Hatred (I'm not even sure they ever were).

They were definitely funny, it's just they get shown so many times we're forgot !
Its like those episodes of Family Guy they have on BBC 3, they were funny once....

I meant the hypermart  in Calais,where they go and stock up on the stuff. 1 pound for wine is FAR too much to spend.

Simon Pegg, he- Oh, I can't say anything bad about the Peggster.

Neil Marshall and his... Grr... I can't do anything there either.

AH!

If British horror is supposed to be superior, explain Razor Blade Smile and Alien Prey!

No need to apologize to us... you can count the number of Americans who've ever seen a CARRY ON film on one finger.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
