Not Going Out Comments

Lee Mack
If he was a knife he would cut himself. Was on Steve Wright show today and not an easy bunny. A bit defensive for a comic imo.

Going downhill
Since season 5, this has been getting steadily less funny. It now raises far fewer laughs, and is getting a bit lame and repetetive.

Sorry
Once a great programme (particularly with Tim Vine), to relatively pleasant and now to clinging on with hope. It's time to wrap up and remember the great earlier episodes.

Disappointing
I have always enjoyed this programme and had been looking forward to the new series. It was so disappointing and not at all funny. It is completely different with kids in it and I didn't laugh once. I switched it off before the end because it was so boring. Even Lee Mack couldn't make me laugh with the lines he had in this.

No Tim Vine?
I like the characters but where's Tim gone? No good without him or that dopey cleaner.

Funny? I think so
Ignore all negative comments why obviously have been written by someone who hates a laugh. Love Miranda? Same here, this is no disappointment - funny, sarcastic, brilliant. I seriously can't believe anyone would write such mean comments, conclusion: they are all aliens. Go not going out!

Funny? I don't think so
That well known saying "sarcasm is the lowest for of wit" says its all. Thats all Lee Mack is about.

IT IS FECKING AMAZING

Have to say...
...that virtually all the comments saying this is awful are from people with only a remedial grasp of English. I think that says it all: if you're not very bright, you won't find this funny.

Best programme ever All artists are very funny

2/10
this is NOT funny - lee mack is a decent standup but he fails big time with this and the pathetic looking tim character adds insult to an already tacky depressingly bad show

CANS OF IT
Very BIG can of laffter!!!!!!

I'm Staying In
Joy to watch. Lee Mack's script input and comic background not to mention Tim Vine's fall guy role, one liners, and faultless timing make this unmissable for me. The inter play/word play, double entendres, and the North/South humour divide are performed to a very high standard throughout the cast. Comedy is subjective, however, as suggested before those who don't see the above should stick to something warm and friendly like The Vicar of Dibley, My Family or The Life of Riley.......

LOVE/HATE
A divided nation. Iv'e seen a lot lot worse.Remember Diner ladies, and don't forget that awful Miranda !!

Not funny
What a awful program

Gagging for more
This is a very funny show - high gag rate and laugh upon laugh. The timing and bond between Lee Mack and Tim Vine is excellent. I can only imagine the people who don't find this funny prefer their comedy a little more sedate? Terry & June boxsets all round.

Awful Show, Awful Writing, Awful Acting, Really Terrible
This has to be the worst programme on TV. How it is not pulled i do not know. The writeing is so lazy and the punchlines of the jokes? Did they have leftover christmas crackers
I hate this show 5:09pm Fri 21 Jan
 
   
10 out of 10 (for me)
Lee Mack is a great stand up comedian. I am not usually a fan of the set-up sit-com, but this show works and i like it. Of course the gorgeous Sally Bretton has no influence on my tuning in each week!
Anyone for coffe? 10:26am Sat 15 Jan
 
   
Bring back Miranda!!
It's a great show, but not the same without her!
Kentish maiden 8:44pm Thu 13 Jan
 
   
One of the worst!
This has to be one of the worst comedy programs on tv - basic set up, plots and jokes - I thought we moved away from the predictable canned laughter 10 years ago- ever line doesnt have to be a joke!!!
jon Stewarts english cousin 9:44pm Tue 21 Dec
 
   
if you think Friends is good....
Don’t compare this to Friends. Friends have half of the top Hollywood scriptwriters on the show and its still crap. Its a soap opera with canned laughter. I defy anyone to laugh at it if the laughter was removed. It's bereft of jokes. Friends compared to this show is like the Monkeys compared to the Beatles!! People ony think Friend is any good because they’re on a daily drip feed of it. There’s not any time you can’t switch the TV on and Friends isn’t on. It’s the McDonalds of TV land. I’s cancerous rubbish!!! This show on the other hand IS FUNNY!! Hahahaha!!!
Seinfelt 8:53pm Tue 21 Dec
 
   
Not good
There's just no acting. They stand around waiting for their lines. Somebody sets up a joke, Lee Mack delivers the punch line and then canned laughter. Over and over and over again. I remember somebody saying Friends is good because every line is a joke or a lead-up to a joke. No, that's what this is and it's awful. Friends has something called 'storyline', and most lines contribute to it, and most are funny too.

This is, without doubt;
My favorite program - EVER!
Hilary 11:09pm Wed 23 Dec
 
   
Really
Why has this got such a high rating? It has to be one of the worst comedy that the bbc show- that say a lot. Lee mack you dont have to make every line you say a joke. joke canned laughter joke canned laughter. Come on lets get somthing a bit more needed BBC.
Watchman 11:51pm Sat 29 Aug
 
   
this is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i love it it is great you must watch it on bbc iplayer or any way you can it is excellent!!!!! well written and very funny!!!!A+++++++++
jamieM 8:35pm Fri 3 Apr
 
   
Absolutley BRILLIANT!!!!
I don't know what people mean when they say it's rubbish, the jokes are cleverly written and even the actors are brilliant, some people may prefer the more subtle jokes but i dont see why!
MissTennant 5:48pm Sun 22 Mar
 
   
I watch it every week
I watch this every week and laugh despite the fact I know it's crap. Laughing is better than being miserable.
shaman 8:53pm Fri 20 Mar
 
   
GSOH needed
If you find Friends funny then stay well clear of this. This comedy uses puns can doublentendre to gain its goal. Crap acting, crap story but who cares. You will chukle at some point and if you have a funny bone then most of the time. If you describe yourself as a funloveing person and don't like this then you are an idiot.

Talk about Drivel
I had the unfortunate experience of watching this programme last week. This is not comedy it's tragedy. What ever happened to good comedy? Only Fools, Yes, Prime Minister, To the Manor Born, watchable, cleverly written, actually funny. Instead of THIS rubbish!!
SimonP 6:55pm Sun 15 Mar
 
   
Comedy?
I thought it was a fly on the wall docu-soap like the One show. Well there you go. Shows just how wrong you can be.
Mella Likka 8:16pm Thu 12 Mar
 
   
Laughed my head off -not!
Very annoying canned laughter which must amount to an admission that basically its not funny.
Chaplin 10:09pm Mon 9 Mar
 
   
Well I like it..
It's not exactly groundbreaking tv, but sometimes you just want something to laugh at, and this does just the job. When i go out on fridays, i consider it good enough to catch up on iplayer, so i dont just watch it out of sheer boredom.
I.heart.tv. 9:57pm Mon 9 Mar
 
   
Awesome
i luv this show, i always want friday to come quik coz i luv it so much. Lee is sooo fit xx

Poor
weak comedy. but expect nothing less from the bbc.
Samc 9:38pm Fri 20 Feb
 
   
Hang on a second
Personally I dont particularly like this program, there's no need for acting as it is non-existant, they might as well put out a script.. But saying everyone north of london has no culture is going a bit far... Anyone who is that derogatory obviously themselves has no concept of 'culture' as they have no right to define it..

People
I don't like this show but the people in here are just weird. If you don't like it don't watch, get a life.
