    I happened to chance upon the second series last night and was greatly alarmed that it had been recommissioned..

    Some of the impressions are good, but the writing is consistently poor. The basic ideas for sketches are weak and then they drag out the same 'joke' in overly long scenes. (Chris Evans getting hyper of coffee, and then people going oh no Chris drank coffee for several minutes.) Basically I was wondering if there are any people out there who find this show funny- and if so how and why?!

    I think you summed it up pretty well. The impressions on the whole are good but only 1 or 2 sketches are funny, not really worth sitting through 30 mins to wait for them.

    I want dead ringers back!

    I love it so so so much! Not all of them, but Gary Barlow's North, and Michael McIntyre, and Tim Burton's Tim Burton, and Brian Blessed working in a library, and all the Top Gear ones, I think there are some really hilarious ones in there.
