Come Fly With Me

Post by Patrick on Wed Dec 15, 2010 11:35 am

...is the title of the new show by the creators of Little Britain. And I just discovered this PROMOTIONAL TRAILER for the show on the Anglophenia blog at BBC America.

One of them appears to be blacking up in one of the promotional pictures I've seen. Oh goody, more 'ironic' racism...

Having not seen any promos for the show yet, I can only be thankful for my good fortune.

Funny you should mention "The High Life". I actually downloaded the series earlier this year out of sheer nostalgic curiosity. I'm please to report that it was every bit as funny as when I originally saw it.

Camp as a box of frogs, but great fun. Laughing

*Unfortunately* Cumming got the (wonderful) role of Boris in "Goldeneye" and that was the premature end of the show. Great shame really.

I am invincible!!!!!!!!!!

Great shame indeed. Although like "Fawlty Towers", perhaps it was ultimately better for the to enjoy one classic series and go out on a 'high' as it were, rather than continue and tarnish the brilliance of what we have.

I'd been avoiding this thread, because I'd assumed that you would be discussing Come Fly With Me. Why wasn't this thread advertised with the words The High Life? I loved that show. It's the only fictional example of intense camp that continuously managed to make me laugh (Julian Clary and pre-big time Graham Norton manage it in real life).
