Gimme Gimme Gimme (1998-2001)

And now for something completely different. Remember this?
How the hell did it ever get on the telly?! It is so flipping rude!! But it is fabulous.
On Christmas day with my family I watched two episodes of Gimme Gimme Gimme and the Inbetweeners movie, we are obviously disgusting.
Watching this though has made me realise how things have become more conservative lately even in comedy. Rev is on it's third season.... Seriously?!
Can you imagine 15 years ago a gentle sitcom about a vicar's daily life, what the fuck? We are not a religious country!! These are Tory values!! 15 years ago we had Father Ted and the Vicar of Dibley, yes they were religious characters but above that he was a chainsmoker trapped on an island with a load of arseholes and she was just a fat woman who liked chocolate also surrounded by arseholes! Religion is always something that we have poked fun at, why the fuck are we making this affectionate show about a vicar as though it's good comedy?! Gimme Gimme Gimme would never get commissioned under a Tory government, it's lewd, vile, disgusting and hilarious.
