G.O.L.D. are starting repeats of Smack The Pony from tonight (actually in 1 minute). Kicks off right from the beginning, S01E01. Seems to be a double-bill every Thursday, 23:00 - 00:00.

Sky channel 110.

I'm annoyed. I saw that earlier, but I don't have G.O.L.D. Angy

I've got most, but awful quality. I was hoping to record these repeats, but on viewing now ... I'm not certain I'll be able to sustain the will to do so. The first episode just wasn't very funny.

Jonathan Creek really is flipping ace though. Tie him down and make him watch, Julia!

I like Creek, so no bondage is needed. :)

I've just checked and I only have series 2 & 3 of STP. :(

Ah, Smack the Pony, probably one of the most hit and miss sketch shows of it's time. When it was good, it was on fire and when it was bad, well it was bad.

Overall I'd give the show a C+ - A for the fine acting skills of all involved, B- for most of the jokes and F-- because they insisted on doing a bloody song at the end.

However, compared to Tittybangbang, Smack the Pony is Monty Python, I, Claudius and The Wire wrapped into one.
