Some dodgy accents but other than that brilliant. It is a little bit of everything a drama, comedy and just something you don't have to be completly absorbed by. Also some great acting from some of the lesser known cast members.

I think Merchant has done very well to avoid coming down on one side of Bristolian politics. I can't remember character names, but he has one guy who is your stereotypical right wing Daily Mail type. And also has a woman who is a stereotypical leftie. And both are utterly ridiculous while also being totally believable. 

It's skilfully done when he managed to make "throw Colston in the river" and "throwing him in was vandalism" both equally ridiculous while not coming across as an insufferable centrist.

Seconded, it's a great show.

I find I miss a lot of the dialogue though as I'm too busy trying to spot locations I recognise!

Off on a tangent I am not sure if you are watching the current BBC1 programme called "Showtrial" this is set in Bristol too.

Lot's of filming around the Create centre and park etc

Not heard of it, but I'll try and remember to seek it out on iPlayer. I'm a sucker for anything filmed/set in Bristol.

Saw E1 & it was a bit too dark for me. I was expecting a comedy. Never mind. 

Back to repeats of Teachers, Skins & Why Don't You for me . . . 

Honestly try EP2 as it is a lot better. 

Skins will always be a fav thou.   I actually plotted all the locations on a map while watching it again during LD1.  It was quite the thing:

That map is quite the thing! You should’ve done more quizzes . . .

Someone on the bristol subreddit said they did a map plotting all of Andrew Lincolns bike rides on Teachers. That is quite masterful.

There's has been some pointing going on in the batcave watching this. In episode 3 when they're on the boat, I thought if the drone went higher, Ashton Gate may have been viable in the distance but it wasn't. Cut away too early.

Must admit that the drone shot with the sun setting over Ashton Court gave me a few pangs of home sickness.

Sorry subreddit is, if you like, a sub forum on Reddit. In this instance the Bristol one.  
 

Teachers was and still is awesome although maybe it should have stopped at end of series 2.   To lose Simon, Susan and Jenny in one hit was just too much. Series 3 just about held it together.

4 however.. 4 can **** off.

Spot on. The quality nosedived after that. For those 2 series though it was unmissable TV. Loved the fact their local pub was the old Seymours Club(from the outside only though, I think) - had a cracking evening in there once watching the Wurzels supported by Fred Wedlock. It was bedlam.

and of course Seymours crossed over into end of Series 1 of Skins with Anwar's birthday party
