Inside No.9

Recommended Posts

I was surprised this show didn't already have a topic, but am hoping there are other fans here that want to discuss it.

It's hard for me to pick a favorite episode, but I especially enjoyed Sardines and Tempting Fate. The one that surprised me the most was The Devil of Christmas. I wasn't prepared for the brutal ending after listening to Derek Jacobi and laughing at the terrible show he was commenting on for most of the episode.

I hadn't heard of this show until their Halloween special was mentioned on a Ghostwatch blog that I follow, so "Dead Line" was my first episode. I really liked it, so now I want to go back and watch everything else.

I love this show so very much—these two men are geniuses! To write shows that range from hilarious to scary to moving is no easy feat, but these guys pull it off so well.

Its hard to pick a favorite episode because they’re all so unique. The 12 Days of Christine is just brilliant. I was also unexpectedly moved by Bernie Clifton’s Dressing Room. Cold Comfort was ... wow!

The Devil Of Christmas was terrific but the one I really loved was The Bill. The increasing insanity over who gets to pay for dinner culminating in lying about having 6 months to live and settling it with a round of stabscotch? Just brilliant. I've loved these two since "The League Of Gentleman" but I haven't seen the Halloween one yet. It's going on the to do list right away.

I only caught the Halloween show after the fact on BritBox. It must've been fun to watch live on tv. I suspect I would've been fooled by the fake-out they pull early in the episode if I had seen it that way.

Cold Comfort is one that I've watched a few times now. It's a compelling story and I definitely didn't see that ending coming.

The Bill made me anxious, so I was happy that it had a sort-of-happy ending. At least no one died! And it's always great to see Philip Glenister.

I also really like The Trial of Elizabeth Gadge because of all the silly jokes and the presence of David Warner.

I enjoyed Cold Comfort as well. It was such an interesting idea to film it all using security cameras. That's why I love Pemberton and Shearsmith. They always come up with really original ideas.

I’ve only seen a few of these but I love the one in the hotel corridor where they’re all speaking in verse. Really well done. 

I wish I had rewatched that one before I let my BritBox description lapse. I'm not a fan of bedroom farce, so I wasn't paying close attention and don't think I gave the episode its due.
