Apologies if this has been flagged up before, but here's a podcast that might be of interest to EDC enthusiasts - from a series created for sitcom fans and/or aspiring comedy writers in general:
Sitcom Geeks - Episode 57 - In Praise Of Ever Decreasing Circles
I'll have a listen to that later, ta for link. I'm wondering if Aaron could set up a podcast for every decent sitcom within reason, on his Pro Thing obviously. By Podcast I mean a proper one involving the writer or a major actor from the show, like a DVD commentary which can be as good as a doc.
EDC is the sort of sitcom broadcasters should be looking for and even encouraging writers to create. A true sitcom with a bit of character conflict going on, giving the lead character a headache now and again. It's narratively involving and interesting. Even repeating this on BBC Four or somewhere would help get the message across to aspiring young sitcom writers that there is more to sitcom than unsubtle post watershed humour, blatant CBB silliness or quickfire gags from a cocky but bland lead character. The sitcom schedule is in desperate need of this sort of sitcom to return. The TV bods just don't get it. They just don't seem to know their stuff like they once did.
