I found an episode of this on the end of a tape, I must have taped it and forgot to watch it. They were stuck on a desert island. And I can honestly say it was the funniest thing I'd seen in months. Its a shame they aren't more popular.

I heard the radio series first. The tv series was fairly inaccessible being on at ridiculous times. And cult status isn't enough, they should have Little Britain status.

Yes, it's a shame. I think they are just too quirky, even for people who otherwise love alternative comedy. They've got a loyal cult (ie *small*) following. It would have been interesting to see if they'd be more popular if only the BBC would actually promote them more and show their series on terrestrial tv in reasonable timeslots!!

Don't worry Kate, it's not for everyone.

I do however like the fact that my mum watched the Milky Joe episode with me ages ago and she still talks about it quite a bit. i don't think she got it but at least it was memorable!

Personally, i'm glad it hasn't got the status of Little Britain. That spoils it I think. The boosh have got many fans, but it's quite low key. If everyone starts mouthing catchphrases and stuff it becomes annoying. And i'm glad they havn't just turned into money grabbing A**holes. Making merchandise out of everything (in my opinion) Little Britain fans don't hate me. (i like the first series and radio series) :wink:
It took me a while too, to get into the second series, but now I love it. Especially Nannageddon.

Its not really that much of a catchphrase show as there are so many to try and remember. Most people tend to pick up certain lines or scenes. Its also one comedy i can name stright away as a comedy that makes me smile from start to finish

I don't think its that obscure a programme to hit the medium size time. On BBC2 about ten o'clock should do it. I watched the one where they were trying to chat up two goth girls and it could have been done by Tonyy Hancock and Sid James in the 50s or Bottom in the 80s. I think if a programme has a small cult following it tends to lose that following when something more fashionable comes along. and then good comedians end up up shits creek. And if they get too over-exposed then people get sick of them anyway. I've been reading two books this week one called Inside Little Britain and its all about the Little Britain fellers private lives, I couldn't care less about it and the other one was Ronnie Corbett's story of The Two Ronnies and it was all about the programmes the two ronnies made and it reminded me of what a good show it used to be. Anyway I'm rambling, but there should be a third way between obscurity and ubiquity. I think anyway.
