Julia "Jill" Davis is new hero for me! This joke is sick, twisted, cruel, wrong and just so damned funny! The ending of the series surprised even me and I am pretty jaded when it comes to dark humor! I can't imagine BBC America getting away with showing this! But, I do hope they try and don't edit it too much!

Has anyone else seen this masterpiece of comic timing? No wonder she was able to get one of The League of Gentlemen to participate! I'm trying to figure out what part of England the show is supposed to be in. The West Country? Where is that?

I see that Julia Davis did another series prior to this one for BBC calld Human Remains -- am going to be checking it out soon!!!!

If anyone knows anymore about her or this show, please share!

The West Country is the term used to describe a non-area between the west-London counties and Wales.

Technically for most people that means Bristol. It's sort of a rural-ish area, or at least it used to be. Ask Tim...!

The 2nd series aired in the UK a few months ago and some of the jokes are very close to the bone but I find that humour very funny!
Jill gets even worse than in series 1 involving seducing young children and a Jill pretending to be a black woman - when people don't believe her (!) she says "We've not had the best of summers"

Linda (Linder) is in it again and just as stupid

I live in the West Country (Bristol) abd everyone sounds like Jill. The second series is very weird - it's all set at the beach and ends with a bizarre chase across fields I recall. Jill's also pretending to be pregnant for most of it. Sick but funny.

Have you tried Peep Show yet Matt? You might like that too.

Hey Matty, our 'Dessie' is right, the West Country is basically the south western area of England. It's stereotyped for being all farmers with rural accents, kind of like our equivilent of hicks I guess. There's a strong element of 'chav'-ness about many of the towns. The coast is beautiful though. Bristol itself is actually quite a cultural centre, being the home of 'trip hop' (Portishead, Massive Attack, etc), and also where Carey Grant was from. (For further info on chavs, see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chav , which is actually very informative!)

Caress & Lubin -- I am DYING to see this new series!!! I don't know if I can wait!!!! Trying to figure out how "Linder" survived!?!?!?

Lubin --- I LOVE Peep Show and force many people watch to watch it! Tho, the most recent series (or series 2) was really kind of sad, tho. Felt bad for them. ...I'm a softie at heart!
