Default The League of Gentlemen

Quote:
BBC Two can confirm that the much-loved and critically-acclaimed comedy The League Of Gentlemen will be back on screen later this year for three special episodes, to commemorate the twentieth anniversary since their debut on BBC Radio. Their career launched with the BBC in the same year they won the Perrier Award for Comedy at the 1997 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith and Jeremy Dyson will be reuniting for a return to Royston Vasey. The League Of Gentlemen ran for three series on BBC Two and won the Rose D'Or and the BAFTA for Best Comedy Series in 2000.

Such an odd "comedy" programme....

60% of it was funny...

Absolute catch phrase crazy though for the water cooler crew.

Was never a fan

The people I know who like it are all a little odd.

I occasionally visit the village it was filmed in

If anything, the tv characters are understated

Great show. Shearsmith and Pemberton are brilliant writers.

Takes it's queues from Abbott and Costello, Hammer Horror, Amicus and Hitchcock etc. Superbly written and darkly comedic. Love it.

Ah here comes the 'nod to Hitchcock crew'

An awful lot of the show just wasn't funny.
