Amazing how many people miss what can be pretty biting satire in the show, so I'm wondering if that's why they made it more obvious, about Brexit.
They certainly didn't pull any punches, and I think it's one of the most underrated comedies ever.
Coping the the annual christmas madhouse became a bit easier after watching (and recording) that.
I have a feeling I'll be watching again a couple of times over the next couple of weeks
Yeah - there's something depressingly funny about how debased and consuming this Brexit agenda is in this country that a comedy as far out as The League Of Gentlemen and which seemed long gone is now as contemporary as anything and more capable of satirising it than anything else! Definitely a case of the UK moving closer to the world of Royston Vasey rather than the other way around! Then again, The League was always a bit ahead of it's time!
Definitely something that will reward repeated viewings and a rewatch of series 1,2 and 3. Might even go back to watch League of Gentlemen Apocalypse which, from having last seen years ago, didn't seem as bad as some made it out to be (even if it's a bit messy). Undoubtedly one of the best comedies I've ever seen.
