- Cabin Pressue and bleeding brakes (R4 content)
Deliberately missed it as I was driving on slush covered roads in heavy traffic and it does not help my concentration
Very wise move, I can’t drive on motorways listening to cabin pressure, or Meet David Sedaris. Too much funny.
Also apologies for the original post, some pretty helpful words not included there… 🙄Posted 5 years ago
Its a great comedy really funny
I must be listening to something different!
I find Radio 4 sitcom comedy to be bloody awful:Posted 5 years ago
Cabin Pressure; Elvenquest; Fags, Mags and Bags; Rudy’s Rare Records; that one about the codebreakers – all dire. Rarely raise so much as a smirk.
For me Cabin Pressure doesn’t belong in that list, it would be elevated into its own list with Old Harry’s Game and… and… that may be it.
I like fags bags, but it isn’t something I would think twice about listening too when arranging priceless china, driving on slushy roads or holding a baby.Posted 5 years ago
Sorry, but Fags, Mags & Bags is genius – one of the best things I’ve heard on radio.
Cabin Pressure is great and has been from the start.
Clare in the Community needs a special mention though – thought it would have mistakenly gone down well with the ‘PC gone mad’ brigade on here.
It’s so well written and just gets better as it gets older.
The Castle is weak, as is Party, but Count Arthur Strong & Ed Reardon’s week makes up for them, tbh.
I even quite like ‘When The Dog Dies’. Ronnie Corbett is a bit of a genius in that, tbh.Posted 5 years ago
I have to confess to having been turned around on Clare in the Community. But I would argue it has become good, after years of practice (seriously how many series now?)
Count Arthur Strong leaves me cold, but Ed Reardon’s Week is pretty good sometimes.
The Guns of Adam Riches is worth a listen, its put together in a different way to most shows.Posted 5 years ago
and were much funnier on radio when they didn’t have to cater for the dumb masses that watch TV.
I wouldn’t say that, some things just suit the radio better.
Bleak Expectations being the prime example.Posted 5 years ago
The TV adaptation was bloody awful, just didn’t work without the surrealist nonsense.
