    So...what do you think of This Country?

    For me, funniest thing on TV in years. A mockumentary...

    Question for non-Brits: Does it even make any sense?

    Yes it makes sense, have a lot of the same humor here in Denmark. But haven't heard about this before, seems entertaining. :)

    I found it funny. Especially the last bit in the second video.

    I must admit I haven't watched this series, perhaps being put off by the apparent portrayal of 'some with accents' representing the less thinking, and the examples shown don't entice me. I had the same feeling about Mrs Brown's Boys and Bread, and even Shameless, although I probably enjoyed the first few episodes of this last one. But then I like much other stuff that might apparently do much the same so perhaps purely down to taste. :oops:

    Each to their own, but please don't put This Country in the same category as Mrs ***** ****. :D
    I wouldn't say they are "less thinking" just desperately trying to make their lives seem more interesting to themselves than they actually are.

    It's funny.
    But why do they sound like they have a sock
    in their mouths? Hard to understand.

    Bloody accents! It's set in an area called the Cotswolds, sort of south-cental England.
