"This particular sketch is exaggerated to such an extreme level, it's clear that it has no grounding in reality."
Unfortunately for the BBC, this one has no grounding in comedy, either.
Yes, but, wether you found it funny or not, I can't really see the incontinent 15,000 being Little Britain viewers in the first place, can you?

It isn't funny. Well, maybe for half a second, but then you realise what a lazy and shitty piece of television it is. They keep trying to go for the 'shock' factor or something, but the only shocking thing is that they are hailed as the gods of British comedy. I don't like the fact that their 'comedy' is 99% about saying 'look at me' and expecting a laugh. The fat suits and Lucas made up as a Thai bride are exactly that. Where is the humour exactly?
Every time I slag Little Britain I think to myself 'am I turning into a miserable old wanker?' and if I am I don't care because I know what good comedy is, and there are other current shows that make me laugh way more.

I love the LB radio series, loved the first TV series, and loved moments of the second one.
But the third series is just lazy, lazy, lazy. And the worst thing about the Incontinent Old Lady (or IOL as no-one's calling her) is that there's no joke there. She just... wets herself. That's it.
Although that wasn't the worst sketch in last week's. The Bubbles de Vere one managed to be far more excruciatingly unfunny, with the added bonus of Rob Brydon (who I haven't seen do anything good since Cruise Of The Gods)) being unfunny as well. Oh, and the Thai Bride one was horribly racist, something you'd never expect of L&W and something that feels like coming full circle away from the satire of the Minstrels sketches in the first series.

Yeah, there was very few moments of greatness here. The Dafydd sketch was fine until the OGITV punchline, which just turned it into a...I don't know. It was bad.
Ting Tong was awful, and Lou and Andy was obvious. The Sebastian sketch in my book was the only redeeming feature.

Read today that this series has lost three million viewers since the first week. Tragic really, as this week's was the best yet, I thought.
