Been watching the repeats on Dave each lunchtime off my digi-box, and some are simply hysterical comedy gold- never fail to make me laugh, so this C4 series has a lot to live up to!!

Greg Davies is superb!!

Same words were in my description of TM on other platform,
and It really is laughing to tears, like Bottom, Red Dwarf and Impractical Jokers had that effect on me.
Only difference is - it's silly hysterical.

Still watching it, but again sad to say it is not a patch on any of the previous, which I am also watching as they appear on various channels.

Only saving grace is Daisy May Cooper and Greg's very funny comments.

Ditto, as again Daisy May was very funny, especially the melon eating with Richard Herring, and then the final task of saying as many different four letter words without repeating and she came out with just about every crude one you could think of, including one they "bleeped", so I think we know what that would have been.

I thought yesterday's was the funniest yet, the Christmas tree bagging machine was inspired. I like all of them but Katherine Parkinson is emerging as my favourite.

I'd agree that this series just isn't sparking for me either. Many of the solutions seem very uninspiring. Just feels like there's a lack of original thought or out the box thinking compared to previous series. This has felt very noticeable in the first task which hasn't made me smile much apart from Greg's contempt for some of the efforts.

The Cocktail Mixing was funny, but to be quite honest with you I am getting far more laughs (hysterical) out of the repeats, some of which I have watched at least twice before.

For example, currently Tim Vine, Liza Tarbuck etc. etc.
