Haha! You mean guesthouse paradiso? As much as I like that film in its own way, I am SURE the league film will be better.

ross gaines's new profile wrote:didnt they show a scene from the movie.
Yeah it was the clip from The League movie where Tubbs is in 'Jeremy's house on the toilet ("I made a little brown fish!") and Edward is at his door when he tries to run away ("Going somewhere local?").

Yeah the pirate memory game sketch is the best one in Little Britain. Although I think the new versions of them for the second series weren't as good.

I say the fact that they reprised the characters as regulars is one of the reasons the second series wasn't as good. But the one where he wanted a record and they actually had it in the shop was good.

It did, didn't it? I can't remember correctly because this was AGES ago, but I thought the interview did make the list. :?

The interview sketch, the Papa Laz first sketch, and the first Local Shop sketch made the list, I think.

It did get on, I'm sure it did. Number 25 or something wasn't it? There was definately a pauline sketch in there from the first series, because I distinctly remember them talking about feeling ashamed after they filmed that scene

I don't think it was the first Local Shop sketch... it was the second one wasn't it? When they tie up the builders, and Tubbs dances naked?

Yeah it was the road men sketch that they showed, but it was pretty much tubbs and edward in general that was being erm celebrated. that makes no sense whatsoever

It's been ages since I saw it but it did seem like they were just doing Tubbs and Edward in general. Someone called them "The big-nosed couple" :?
