Although I've just realised that it clashes with the new series of The Sopranos, boo!

I've never watched Sopranos yet but I reckon it looks right up my street. Would I need to borrow the box sets from series 1 to now to get into it? How many series are they on now?

Rape a celebrity Ape, Ross Kemp on Fire and "No News" have made me laugh until I cry. The deadpan-ness of Ianucci's comedy is just brilliant - was he behind the Day today at all? The guy who is meant to be Jamie Oliver, haha, brilliant!

I think the new one is series seven. It's going to be the last one' date=' unfortunately.

It's series 6. I can't fucking wait! And it's officially the last one but they're also filming 8 extra episodes just now to tie up loose ends and be shown next year.

The Armando Iannucci Show is out on DVD on Monday too! Amazing, a complete void of good stuff, then the new series of the Sopranos sneaks up on me without warning, a brilliant series that I thought I'd never see again (Armando Iannucci) gets released on DVD and Hybrid release a new album on Monday (OK, so no one else will find that remotely exciting)..."Heaven, I'm in Heaven".

Shaki, you could try watching the box sets of series 1-5 before Sunday if you've got a spare 65 hours and then watch the catch-up of the new one, but you should be OK just to jump straight in at series 6.

With Extras, Time Trumpet and The Sopranos on tonight, this will be the best night of television since "Dan Cruickshank's Marvels of the Modern Age" finished...a few weeks back.

I hope there is more "Cilla Black Autopsy": "here's Graham with a quick incision".

Seeing as this is the last series that gives me the rest of my life to catch up........provided I live more than 65 hours. Here's hoping.

Extras is another one I've not got round to watching more than a couple of episodes, looks pretty funny though.

Good TV?! The beginning of a revolution or a flash in the pan?!

Time Trumpet is very hit and miss and below the standard of Ianucci's previous work.

I agree there's a few tumbleweed moments in each episode. Nothing worse than dragging out a bad joke but I'm usually still laughing at there being "No News".

What would you recommend by Iannucci? That new DVD? Has he written any good books?

holy shit the new episode of sopranos was good!

as for ianucci recommendations you can't go wrong with his Chris Morris collaborations, especially The Day Today.

I saw snippets of Time Trumpet when I was at my boyfriend's but I didn't realise what it was. Thankfully trusty Neil has the series on record so I watched it when i got home. Reminds me a bit of a more tame version of Brass Eye/The Day Today, it's still quite good though. Was that advert for, "The Big debate" (or whatever it was called) a real advert? I wasn't sure. If it is, I think I'll watch that too.

Looking forward to season 2 of Extras though :D

After Time Trumpet I switched over to the ITV News. Forgetting I had switched over, I was sitting there expecting something satirical when all of a sudden the newsreader announced "Tony blair believes that potential criminals can be identified..........before birth"

This was a genuine news story! Crazier than Geldof ending death!

E4+1 min cuv!

Yup, but then it clashes with Deadwood!

Why put so much good telly on a Thursday night?

Anyway, I think The Sopranos would have a good shout at being the best television series ever, obviously a lot's down to personal preference, but it's up there anyway.

CD-Wow has a good deal on Sopranos box sets right now, 16.99 per series, bargain.

Yeah, I ended up taping it and watching Time Trumpet, I'll get Deadwood on one of the repeats. A few years ago everyone would have moaned about stuff being repeated all the time, but it is handy.

Time Trumpet is pretty funny. I liked the bit about George Lucas' funeral. And while everyone is talking about it the Sopranos probably is the best TV programme ever. It's between that and the Simpsons anyway.
