"You alright"?

Here in the Northwest England, many people, for some reason just women, use the greeting "Are you all right?"

And it was used best by sweet, dumb, sweet Jenny from the wonderful Mancunian ("from Manchester") comedy series Ideal (with Johnny Vegas).

I recommend Ideal. (Originally titled "I deal".) A bit far out and sometimes rather abstract, and I think very dang funny and very original.

I'll have to give it a shot. I'm not a fan of Vegas' appearances on QI but maybe he's just not in his element there.

I haven't seen those, but I think that on the scripted shows he does a great job. "Ideal" and the one in the holiday town in Spain, where he has a smaller role.

I've watched a couple episodes, it's pretty good.
