British Comedy "Come Fly With Me"

Tue Jun 12, 2012 6:16 am

I just discovered it. Its a brilliant spoof and I think lots of people here would love it. Gotta love the spotter kid who wants to be a pilot! LOL

I think they read a bunch of a.net threads and made it lol

Yes, Come Fly With Me is a pretty good show  

I think it was shot at Stansted  
I do enjoy a spot of flying, especially when it's not in economy!

A lot of people didn't like it but I thought it was quite good. I think most people's opinion was that it was just Little Britain but set in an airport and that it was nothing that hadn't been done already.

That's the problem for me. It's hard not to compare it to Little Britain when you've already watched that, and it feels like a very second-rate effort in comparison.

I loved it. I thought every episode was hilarious.

My favs were the two pilots, Taj and the two check-in girls.
and with that..cabin crew, seats for landing please.

Now imagine an American who's never seen Little Britain and comes on a.net all the time. I've heard all about British low cost airlines. And then I see this spoof show on Netflix. I laughed really hard.

Yeah, it was very funny... but for some it may not be. I'm just a big fan of British humor, and I'm not easily offended. Now, imagine if ABC or something like that aired a similar show... People would be complaining left and right.

I think it's a good but a bit more hit and miss than Little Britain was, Taj was definitely the best though!

I thought it was way better than LB, if for nothing more than the make-up and disguises that Messrs Walliams and Lucas wore, sometimes they were unrecognisable. Great stuff.
