    Oh Liz is a real piece of work. Anyone who gets that excited about pork markets needs to be kept an eye on.

    Love this show, love you Stephen Colbert, but my hat has to be tipped, no, actually come off my head for Louis Cato introducing Armando Iannucci with the great and wonderful, late Chick Corea’s, Armando’s Rhumba! Nobody will know what the hell I’m talking about. I must calm down.

    Ianucci is a legend.

    I loved “The Death of Stalin”!

    We need him to make a new season of The Thick of It.

    Armando is the embodiment of when women say that funny men are sexy, regardless of looks. They have to be at ease with themselves and not grandstand, either. Delightful man.

    I gotta admit, I did not think Avenue 5 was funny at first, but I can hardly wait for the new episodes now.

    Sorry, Avenue 5 was unwatchable. I couldn’t make it through the Series 1 opener. Did it get better?

    Under 8 minutes of Armando Iannucci simply isn’t enough.

    Why does “Avenue 5” sound similar to the Dr Who Episode “Voyage of the Damned.”? Both feature Brits, a Cruise Ship, Space, conflict with other people, etc etc. I doubt “Avenue 5” will have a little person playing Bannakaffalatta, but they might have a little person.

    New season? Excellent!

    Did he say “space terrorism” or “space tourism”? I’ve listened to it twice and it surely sounds like “terrorism”…

    “That proved unpopular…”

    But only with the majority of people, and you know they don’t have the best interests of the ruling class at heart.
