So... is there a reason there's no discussion opportunity for the Comedy Spooktacular?

Because I for one would like to... blah blah blah.

Oeoh. Right. I just was over eager and went straight for the forum. Now, about that Graham guy...

Kudos on getting Graham Linehan on board to do an episode. I've always loved that guy's work. Big Train may be one of the best things of all time :)

I'm a big fan of the first series of Black Books. The other two have their moments, but all in all, the gold is in the first one.

Haven't seen much of Father Ted though.

Great interview. I remember stumbling upon the first episode of "Father Ted" and falling in love instantly.

I think it's interesting that Graham suggests that "Futurama" isn't as successful as "The Simpsons" because it lacks the whole family relationships. But isn't that really "The IT Crowd" versus "Father Ted", too?

Regardless, I love both IT and Ted and am still super-pissed that "IT Crowd" keeps getting delayed over here on DVD.

I admit it, I had never heard of Graham Linehan but now I'm planning on finding out what the hype's about

Ever heard of The Office?

I'm Alan Partridge?

Do Ali G or the Fast Show count?

Dude... I love Father Ted, but it is number 3 or 4 at best.

OK, I'm officially an annoying nerd.

Great interview with Graham Linehan, btw.

I meant to write "sitcom," and have edited it to read as such.

I came to the site looking for some Coyle and Sharpe and was thrilled and delighted to see and hear the Graham Linehan podcast. What remarkable good taste this website has shown! All hail the Linehan!

One question, though: what episode was the initial "ghostly" Father Ted scene from? I can pretty much quote the entire dialogue from every episode (because I have no life), or so I thought! I've never heard that scene before! Is the UK holding out some episodes from the American audiences?
