Me too... it's been awhile since I've seen an episode of it. But those two are just perfect in the roles, like you said .

Good at the whole dry humor thing.

Re: Fans of British television shows...

Fry and Laurie are amazing together whatever they do.

Hugh Laurie's songs "Mystery" and "America" (look for them on youtub) are brilliant

Agreed . I really got a kick out of seeing Fry on Bones. He was just awesome there . I really wish that Hugh could get him to guest star on House sometime. Now that would be something I'd love to see . Him as some sort of patient.

Cool, I'll have to check them out sometime .

That would be great - or if Laurie was a contestant on QI. It would be funny to see their true dynamic. I think Laurie wouldn't allow Stephen to correct him.
The banter between the two would be so wonderful to see!

Yep it would be. And what is QI -- if you don't mind me asking?

Probably . House would just go nuts . Heck yea it would be, those two have VERY good timing together.

Re: Fans of British television shows...

QI is a panel show- check out qi.com - it stands for Quite Interesting

Hugh Laurie actually was on the very first episode of QI

Of course not!

QI (quite interesting) is a panel show with four contestants (who are celebrities (writers/comedians etc)) hosted by Stephen Fry. Alan Davis is always a contestant.

The questions are impossible to answer, they are based on what you think you know and you get penalized for incorrect answers. i.e. who invented the telephone- it wasn't A.G.Bell by the way - he worked in the patent office and basically took the patent submitted by someone else - tried it himself and got the Kudos.

The scores are all over the place people mostly end up with minus points. The whole point of the show is you get to learn very interesting facts, taught by Fry, while the other contestants are very funny.

Here is a link to their site:

Oooh, sounds like an interesting game show. Kind of like Hollywood Squares in a way in terms of the celebrity thing... I take it ...

Is it out on dvd in any way?

Re: Fans of British television shows...

It is- series A, B and C, and they have a DVD game called Strictly Come Duncing

also on the QI website there is a petition- I think it might be on the forum- to get QI shown in America

Awesome. I'll have to see if I can find it over at my local video store .

That's kind of cool -- maybe PBS may be open to showing it or something... since they do show a lot of British programming.

Re: Fans of British television shows...

I'm not sure if the DVDs have been released in America- they might only be PAL

Ah I see... it sounds like it is.

*goes to look it up*

Thanks for clearing that up, Schlubalybub .

I found a couple of things about it on Wiki:

PAL

Pal_region

The latter has to do with video game regions.

I watched some of this on u tube - it was very funny. Currently I just watch the re-runs on Dave. I have strictly come Duncing (its impossible) and I have the B episode. Must pick up the rest.
Did you get the annuals or the books? The QI book is fantastic.

Awesome. I'll have to do that sometime. It's nice to see that some shows are on there every now and again. Heck even Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction was, before dear FOX yanked it off .

It's good to find decent stuff on there.

Any other good British shows that you'd recommend?
