This is a question I don't understand the attraction

Smaug says: Ricky Gervais. Lesbian pr0n. Going into a crowded bar, purely because it's crowded. All these things seem to be popular with everybody else, but I just can't work out why. What leaves you cold just as much as it turns everyone else on?

is it just me
there's been a few posts about Ricky Gervais. I wasn't mad keen on extras but i've see all three of his stand up's and i think they're excellent. (i refuse to use LOL)

is it just fashionable to slag the successful now?

The stand up is great...
...But have you seen 'the invention of lying' It made me want to do an Event Horizon and gouge my own eyes out.

i did hear that was pish
but the stand ups are fucking gold

i also watched all the reruns of the office first series a few weeks back. still fresh.

good interview with him in Esquire this month too.

I was dragged along to that drivel. Ghost Town was bareable, but "Lying" is formulaic shite.

My misses wanted to see it, and so, armed only with the TV trailer, I told her the plot: "bloke 'invents' lying (the only pseudo-original bit in it), man falls for girl, man and girl fall out over something shite and predictable, man or girl do something to make it all better, they live happily ever after. End.

I was pretty much right - although I only saw the start and the end - fell asleep in the middle.

You could apply said formula to Hutch, *Wedding Singer, etc...etc....

Gervais' standup is bloody excellent, IMO. I had a couple of his recored and a couple of that odd looking bloke, who's deadpan, and who's name I forget, but he is famous for doing stand-up. Watched the Gervais one, then the other twat. Gervais's stand-up was so much better by comparison, and much more natural.

* I didn't mind that one, but only 'cos I'm an 80's music freak - the soundtrack made it almost ok.

despite the fact i have a full head of hair (can't really see where your going with that one)

i STOPPED watching Jerry Sadovich after a ceased to be a student. Some considerable time ago. Am i to assume your own education has been sharply curtailed prior to completion.

oh and fuck off

It's more a way of life these days
to slag off the successful. It's been going for a long time now, unless they're from a minority obviously.

Build 'em up to knock 'em down, usually the job of the good ol' British media but anyone can join in

I thought the office was 'ok'...

Extras was 'meh'

Ghost town was alright

Haven't seen the Lying one.

His stand up is not too bad I suppose.

It's fucking precarious balancing on this Gervais-fence you know.

im not on the fence
i think hes very very funny

i just aint seen the liar and thought extras was a bit less good than the brilliance of the office

I meant 'I' was balancing on the fence...

because I have no discerning preference one way or the other.

Definately concurring with the fashionable things to not get comment. It's the non music equivilent of hating bands for selling out (having success). Ricky Gervais used to be funny but then he was on TV, the cunt. I'd respect him more if he'd never made it and was now working in a BP garage.
