5.0 out of 5 stars The best comedy on television
I have just finished the second series on Sky Atlantic and thank goodness Sky had the sense and foresight to take this on. The BBC did a pilot only!
In their time I loved the Goons and Monty Python and the more surreal comedies. Jinsy is certainly surreal and it is great to see that there is exceptional talent out there. Set on an island which seems to incorporate...

2.0 out of 5 stars AVOID!!!
Ugh.... I was hoping it would be slightly better than the first series, but it's just as bad. Not sure who out there actually finds this funny. It can be mildly entertaining if the alternative is watching paint dry. Stupid, silly humour with no intelligence behind it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best comedy on television, 14 Feb 2014

I have just finished the second series on Sky Atlantic and thank goodness Sky had the sense and foresight to take this on. The BBC did a pilot only!
In their time I loved the Goons and Monty Python and the more surreal comedies. Jinsy is certainly surreal and it is great to see that there is exceptional talent out there. Set on an island which seems to incorporate all the Channel Islands, Jinsy seems to have devolved to the most bizarre and weird pythonesque community.Celebrity cameos abound, Stephen Fry, David Tennent, Derek Jacobi and so on. Storylines are so funny and the songs where they are judged by a golden retriever named Sandy are are Just brilliant (Licky Licky song in particular). Have a look on youtube for the songs and tasters, then you will have to go and purchase the dvds because in the future these will be regarded as comedy classics.
Jinsy is a bit chalk and cheese though, you either love it or hate it but series 2 left on such a cliffhanger, might we see the Mighty He? I can't wait for the next series!
Nightly Bye!

5.0 out of 5 stars So Funny !, 2 April 2014

Totally wacky original humour that is different from all the run of the mill stuff on TV now. I so hope it gets a third series.

I love this programme so had to buy both series when they came out to fill the gaps when they aren't on air.
Roll on series 3.

Lovers of series one can expect more of the same surreal insane humour, and Justin Chubb and Chris Bran have maintained a high standard with the scripts. Only one minor point - it's a shame that Harry Hill could not be persuaded to reprise his role of disher out of mild electricals Joon Boolay, being replaced by the not quite so effective Greg Davies as Jennitta Bishard. So that's not good...

Best British comedy series since only fools and horses. If you are a fan of Monty Python, Blackadder, and have a quirky sense of humour, then you will love this!

Wonderful, just as good as the first series (which is saying something these days, most seem to loose the magic of the first series,) roll on series three ;-)

5.0 out of 5 stars No Maureen Leave Him!, 25 May 2014

This review is from: This Is Jinsy: Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
The actors in this series are brilliant, it's the only comedy series I watch (unfortunately I don't have Atlantic so I have to wait ages until its release on DVD - most painful) and the guest stars just keep getting better. Stephen Mangan, Olivia Coleman and Ben Miller are particularly pleasing in series 2.

I thought when I saw Fry he was the Great He... Who can it be if not Fry? It's too much to bear.

The music is my most played album on my phone, and my puppy's called Jinsy... I've developed a problem, but I don't want help. It's better this way...
