    Its all a bit embarrassing for the BBC.

    One of the main reasons why it was remade was because it was a valuable cash cow for them. They made it in line with BBC diversity policies and gave it a more mature feel. And hey, suddenly its lost its magic.

    Huge similarities can be seen between the studio scenes on TG and later episodes of TGI Friday. Its just Chris Evan's way of doing things and a lot of people think it is annoying.

    Its interesting how the old trio showed us that is was possible to achieve global success with a very un-diverse cast. That certainly would have annoyed many Guardian reading, Corbyn loving BBC bosses. It didn't stop them from changing it though!
