Maybe we're on a different schedule from you.

Who are "we"?



wikpedia says

The first episode was broadcast on Tuesday 5 March at 10:00pm on BBC Three.
Maybe you're unstuck in time?

Watched the finale. Chuckled a bit. Moved on.

Not a great one, but entertaining enough fo rme to finish. Liked a look at an IED disposal team's antics for a change which kept the business end of the show pretty true-seeming to real life.

I'll likely tune in when it comes back next year (they mentioned in the tag that a second season has been ordered).

Re: Bluestone 42 (Beeb 3)

I hadn't even heard of this and rarely watch much UK TV/sitcoms, so been catching up on iPlayer. It's got some really nice lines/exchanges and dark humour. Not convinced all the characters work (the Pippin/Merry double act), but really like the CO's droll humour, Millsy and Bird. Reminded me of Scrubs more than anything.

I'd rather see a rerun of It Ain't 'Alf 'Ot Mum... Which is clearly what they were aiming at.
