You're making me want to give this another go - I tried the first couple of episodes and it didn't do much for me, and I found Sue herself quite annoying and overly self-aware (or is that part of the joke?).

Oh I think ANNOYING is deliberate. As a portrayal of human terribleness, I think it is spectacularly good. In fact I wasn’t sure whether it was real or not to begin with

Grace in The Refund really is deserving a BAFTA Nom for Best Supporting Actress AT THE VERY LEAST :disco: :D

“It was instant” :disco:
:D

It really is worth sticking with @COB, it only gets better. The episodes in the 10s are ESSENTIAL

Charity Shop Sue haters when they haven’t told anyone it’s not funny for five whole minutes.

It's very much part of the joke. Her behaviour is totally influenced by the camera pointed at her but it still doesn't stop her being a monstrous cunt and just asking for dodgy footage to be cut.

I‘d quite forgotten that Sue supposedly ends up in A&E on the day of the funeral (:D)

Am realising that I’ve not watched half of these episodes. POOPHORIA was hitherto unseen

Poophoria was an anxiety-related SYMPTOM for the poor old LAYDEH that has the panic attacks. Perhaps the COFFEH was a bit TOO STRONG.

Actually I can sort of see why people don’t think it’s funny as such. It’s mainly quite bleak and depressing :disco:

Not that bleak and depressing don’t make for good comedy, I hasten to add. So was Human Remains, not that that’s necessarily comparable

She could ‘av ‘ad an accident and I’d be ringing her mum, “hello you alright?” “No I’m not your daughters JUST DIED”
