Cunk on Britain, part 2

The second installment of the BBC “Cunk on Britain” series is up, and watch it while it’s there. (There will be five parts.)

Surprisingly, Part I is still up (here) though perhaps in a different incarnation, so maybe the BBC will for once let us Yanks watch the whole thing—at least for a short while.

I haven’t yet seen this, but wanted to give people a chance to watch while they could.

    She doesn’t write those? The credits have four different people.

      No, she’s not giving writing credit; her job is to say the words and act wonky, which she does to a “T”.

    Just listened to a good interview with Diane Morgan – it may well appeal to her fans!

    I found myself wanting to hear the end of the Tudor thing. And yes, I will try to get out more…

    A question: what’s Cunk’s problem with the 80s British sitcom ‘Brushstrokes’? In each of the first two episodes she’s slagged it, followed by a lengthy clip of its title sequence.

      It’s going to b a running joke I expect. Brush Strokes was rubbish, at least IMHO.
