Anyone?

Re: This Country

Yep, I'm a huge fan.  I've been to where it's set lots of times (Cirencester) and I can confirm that characters like Kerry and Kurtan exist there in real life.

That's the second biggest X I've ever seen.

Re: This Country

Haha I can imagine it is.

Was so sorry to hear about the guy playing Slugs dying irl.
But s03e01 was a lovely episide dedicated to him.

Re: This Country

The linked trailer was mildly funny, but I won't watch the show. cool

Introduce us to the next Devs or Outsider and you'll get more positive feedback. big_smile cool

It's great though that there is something out there for everybody.

Apples and oranges?  Very unfair comparing those shows to This Country.

But hey, if you can explain why you're an admin after being on here only two years AND recommend shows as good as This Country, then all power to you. cool

I was attempting to point out (with some humor) that a show like This Country has little chance to be appealing to a wide audience all over the world. It's quite niche.

Regarding the 'time to admin': you can only see what's visible in the forums, not the (virtual pile of) mails that most likely contributed to santah's decision. smile

If I'm honest, most of the shows I like are "quite niche".  I tend not to be into the mainstream stuff.  I don't do it to be cool, it just is.

One of the biggest comedies of recent years here in the UK is Gavin and Stacey.  It's loved by millions, and in the UK, if a TV show is watched by millions, then that's a lot of people.  I hate Gavin and Stacey.

So I'm fine with This Country being niche.

That's the second biggest X I've ever seen.

Re: This Country

Niche isn't bad, it's just that you have fewer people to talk about it. wink

Yep, same here, I've tried some "loved by millions" shows from around the world - not for me! But I totally enjoyed Game of Thrones. cool
