I'm with you on the character of Derek.
Ricky does have it in him to take things too far at times, and I don't think this is it. Actually no, not too far, he'll do something harmlessly for a complete joke, but which can be taken offensive by some, with which people jump on, and construe as too-far. At this point Ricky knows what he's doing and try's to legitimise it, and sticks to his guns, when, I think even he knows that some people see things differently. But, he'll remain adament, and not "apologise" for things to spite the real 'jumper-on-er's', if that makes sense? lol. Shit. But, is a a heartfelt character. You can tell he loves him.
It would be easier if I was conversing verbally. I'm tired. I'm not going to be able to stay up for the Rumble. I know it.
Yeah, I think that's what came up in my thought process - the too much-ness. It was an emotional truck-load in one ep. But, there is a 6-part series beginning on the 30th of Jan over here, so it'll be interesting. I imagine they'll have the continued ongoing portrayal of Derek and Hannah, focusing in on their lives, with singular episodic hijinx involving Derek and Dougie. Will it be getting shown your way, Ape, or will you just watch online?
Ricky did have a great performance, no questions, but he's been doing it for years, lol, even that character. It's just Karl's never acted before, and it was a nothing performance, really, I know, but it was good to see, sort-of understated. I'm still of the opinion Karl's mostly a genuinne person. Karl's just a production tech, and worked with Ricky and Steve back when they did Radio years ago. I still listen to podcasts and webbooks with the three of them from around 10 years ago, when there was little mention of Karl.
Hmmm. In terms of comedy(/drama), yeah, I'd agree. I liked it, though I felt something stopped me from liking it more? It was kind, and emotional, some real vulnerable, heart-wrenching stuff, which Ricky wrote very well; but, maybe I felt it was too much. I'm not putting it down, I understand that's what it was about, that was the intention for Ricky, and it was well done, it just felt a bit forced, like shoving it in our face. Also, what did you feel about Ricky's uncategorized socially awkward character? It slighlty split people here - some thought it may edge on mocking people with learning difficulties.
I do think Karl's performance is a huge standout though. Lol. He's basically playing himself, but with a balding hair-piece.
Sorry about that - I figured it out!
Hey chief, got a question: I posted a new pic I drew for a sig, but it's bigger than the usual parameters for a signature... how can I use it as my signature? I've seen a few people who have larger sized ones, but don't know for sure how to do it...
Can you pop by our thread for a sec?
Yeah I know it wasn't, but you still went on to become one! That must have been the most humorous thing I've seen in a LONG time!
You must be pleased..you've only went and turned yourself into a modding legend.
Nice work on the thread, lol.
Ape, I know this doesn't mean much but I just wanted to personally thank you for posted that.
I cannot stress how much you made my day with that thread.
Well, I thank you. What's my prize?
