    It is absolutely brilliant. I think I have pretty much seen all of them.

    I struggled to get into it, but I love 'The League of Gentlemen'. I had to persevere a bit with that, maybe this is the same?

    Watched quite a few episodes, aye. It's definitely more consistent than Black Mirror, imo.

    The League of Gentlemen is class. Highly recommend it. Really dark humour throughout most of it.

    Favourite episode? 12 Days of Christine for me, but also loved the one with the old comedy duo meeting up one last time, and the one where the teacher lets the homeless man start living with him.

    Never really watched League Of Gentlemen. These are one offs though so there are no recurring characters and some are better than others. I think the first one I saw was "The Bill" and I really liked that, the Sheridan Smith one is good and the crossword(The Riddle of the Sphinx) and hitman ones off the top of my head I would recommend. "Cold Comfort" as well in the Samaritans call center is very dark but good imo. Not sure which the hitman one was maybe "once removed" looking at Wikipedia.

    Is the hitman one where there's no spoken words the entire episode?

    That and the call centre episode are ones that really stick out for me.

    I might need to revisit my thought that you are a higher being than the rest of us.

    Yeah the hitman and call centre ones are both class as well. Some endings are defo better than others, like sometimes I feel they try to do a double-twist too much to keep it unpredictable. Great overall though.

    Yeah all 4 series, only 24 half-hour episodes so easy to get through. Series 5 coming out some time this year as well.

    LoG is absolutely nuts!! Loved the first 2 series and the 3rd was ok but they changed it up a bit and should have left the same ino. Stick with it and get into the characters......absolute nutters!!!
