The Armando Iannucci Shows

So I'm currently in the process of getting through a series of sketch shows that were aired on channel 4 in 2001. If you don't recognise the name you'll probably know him from writing 'I'm Alan Partridge' and 'The thick of it'. I've only watched the first three episodes, but so far they're pretty fucking good, with alot of heavy hearted humour. Each episode is set with a 'rough theme' with a surreal narrative throughout. The series is noted for its CGI and realistic violence. You'll recognise some of the dialogue sampled in rusko's 'cockney thug' tune. I haven't been able to find any episodes on youtube so far, but there's a few torrents/rapidshare downloads about, or just buy the fucking thing. Here's a couple of clips though if your not really 'down with downloads'.
