Hey just popping in to say you all should really watch The Wire.

Also I'm out of QI for now and need something to satisfy my desire to see people sit around being funny. Which british panel show has the second highest concentration of Stephen Fry/Alan Davies/David Mitchell after QI?

Stephen Fry has had one appearance on Never Mind the Buzzcocks, David Mitchell has cropped up as a guest on Mock the Week in the past, and as a guest and a guest host more times on Have I Got News For You. He is also a team captain on Would I Lie To You?

Other ones not quite in the panel format that are worth checking out are The Bubble (David Mitchell as host), TV Heaven Telly Hell (David Mitchell has been a guest), and You Have Been Watching (David Mitchell has appeared several times as a guest).

So I started watching the Wire a couple of days ago (merely waited this long to mess with Caranfin's head :D), and I must say it's really looking good so far.

You utter bastard. :P

EDIT: Also I started watching The Wire again and holy shit there's a ton of symbolism and other subtle shit I totally missed on my first watching and goddamn the writers really put a ton of thought into this shit.

Stephen Fry has had one appearance on Never Mind the Buzzcocks, David Mitchell has cropped up as a guest on Mock the Week in the past, and as a guest and a guest host more times on Have I Got News For You. He is also a team captain on Would I Lie To You?

Thanks. Started watching Would I Lie To You? and have not been disappointed. David Mitchell is hilarious.
