I've been watching a lot of mountaineering videos the past bunch of months. I like to see them in all their extreme situations
You probably wont be surprised to hear this from me, but I think its... over-rated. ha!@Hensmon what is your view on british humor/comedy?
Haha I think it's a cultural thing - most people from Denmark love british humor, but can't stand American. I've seen The Office and Misfits (fantastic shows!) and of course comedies from US like FRIENDS, Seinfeld and all that and I always come to the same conclusion; Sure, shows like FRIENDS and Seinfeld are fine as comedies, but if I really want to laugh I'll go to The Office or anything with Monty Python.You probably wont be surprised to hear this from me, but I think its... over-rated. ha!
I never got on the Karl Pilkinton bandwagon as I find it too 'fake', like he is over playing a character that is meant to be funny due to the fact he is a real person, and thats what makes it good. Even the reactions are kind of over-blown for the sake of it. If its essentially over-stated/fake then I cant buy into. Maybe I never gave it a proper chance to be honest. I thought the original office was pretty genius for its time, and also if you have ever watched Misfits (so good) I think that showcases British TV humour quite well (despite not really being a comedy). The reason I call it 'TV humour' is because think British banter/conversational/general humour to be good and kind of defining of the country, but that our TV comedies are a bit short-lived and weak. The exact flip would be America. Great TV comedy, shit banter
