Gary Tank Commander

#1
Has anybody else been watching this on BBC iPlayer?

At first it took some time to warm to but now I just think it's hilarious - a bit of mocking the army and kicking the arrse out of the Glaswegian accent but shows the true army I reckon!

Obviously :roll:

So I'll save anyone searching through the threads by saying the majority view is that it's one of the worst pieces of comedy ever produced

The 'youtube' bits are hilarious...although the slightly (i use the term loosely) camp corporal leaves a bit of head scratching... :? still funny though! Comical when he walks through arrivals to the fat bird wearing oversized sunglasses and talking about the weather...

saying that some bits are a little cringe-worthy, such as the overuse (or use at all...) of the term 'Sarge'. And using a heavily cammed up AS90 as a tank... And 2 commissions hanging in the 'Sarges' office...

To be fair there are two bits i found slightly amousing (spelling?) the bit where the lad gets his jollies whilst recruiting and the hearts and minds operation.
Pile of wank otherwise.

Some bits of it are ok, others complete dross. The funniest thing I've seen on it is when they encounter the bearded bloke in a dress who was one of 'them' :D I think the writer has been spending a lot of time on arrse!

Agree, it's shite.

I laughed AT it, not with it.

Cheers :)
The producers probably just said 'well yeah its big and got a long gun on it, definitely a tank then'
The more I think about it, the more sh*te bits there are in it, I just find how camp he is hilarious, but the actor(writer as well) has certainly done a little bit of research...more than can be said about a lot of national newspapers!

AS90:


AS90 with 52 Calibre Length Barrel as opposed to the 39 Calibre Length, No Bellows Fitted, Fume Extractor would foul the Barrel clamp............................. urghhhhhhhh! tissues please!

Gratification over for today - many thanks for posting the Gun porn, the Abbot was a nice enough and got the juices flowing quite readily (akin to golden oldy porn).

WTF are cog thingys :? - or are we on about sprockets, and there ARE NO SPROCKETS on the back.
