I think it has turned out to be a superb show with great imagination to its gags, this week for instance the remote control balloon and the locket. I think it never drags at all and nearly always hits. It doesn't need cutting and is the best new comedy series in a while.

I thought it looked rubbish from the run-up ads, but I'm really enjoying it. The pacing of the writing, the playback speed changes and the music help make it quite hypnotic.

Hands up anyone else who has written "homo" on a small bit of paper and showed it to anyone at work...


I'm still waiting for an opportunity to use the phrase "wax an owl"... still, the week is young.

Can't decide if that is better than "quick, we must phone Berlin!", or whatever the bonkers woman in the office said last week!

Michelle Gomez (Sue White) is a comic genius!!!!!! Superb prog - an hour isn't long enough!!! Once again Channel 4 prove that comedy is the only thing they do well.

This week had me weeping when Tamsin Greigs character said that Dr Secretan looked like the donkey from Shrek!!!! It's soooo true!!

This prog has definately found its feet. Take a school playground full of 12-14 year olds, put them in a hospital and you have 'Green Wing'

Glad to see others agreeing to the quality, its not jsut one or two unny moments its most of it, then you have the blue wee, the cruel minestrone scene, the pure oddness of the councillor, the goading of the doctor (which is done superbly, the way he is set up, 'i've complimented you, come on you must have something good to say about me', although I prefer the calling the x-rays joanna of the other week), the confrontation of the lads about the sexist comparisons, and the superb switch around by Matt (perhaps my favourite character), the other notebook scene where one of the girls is told she has a letterbox mouth. Now out of that for me, whats left of the notebook scenes didn't particularly work, nor did the harp as it was so blatantly signposted what would happen.

All in all, stellar.

The blue wee I was lmfao at

"Why would I inject individual pieces of sweet corn with stuff to make your pee blue?"
/doc walks off
"It was in your fanta"

EDIT: Oh and when that new doctor and the other doctor was using Mark Heap's character's x ray machine to find money in packets of crisps, god I laughed

Last week's was the first episode I've missed... and it sounds like it was the best one so far.

So, does anyone know if this gets a repeat?

The last repeat was Saturday 25th at 11.15pm so it looks like you've missed out there Walrus Man.

Missed it again, despite remembering it was on with about 10 minutes to go.

What can I say but what brilliant show. I've only watched the last two episodes and already I'm a fan.

My fave moment so far was from last weeks episode where the two doctors were passing each other in the corridor and got over enthusiatic with their greetings. Brilliant! Can't wait for next weeks episode.

I managed to catch this week's show (after missing last week's twice) and thought it was great. Mark Heap is superb, everytime he was on screen I couldn't stop laughing, loved his whole kidnapping routine.
