Well, it had some nice ideas. Plus, it mentioned (a) The Goodies, and (b) the fact one of the cast looks a bit like a fat Rik Mayall. But! We didn’t actually laugh once, and the musical number came over like Flight Of The Conchords without the production values. Pity, we were looking forward to it.
Not that we’re a blog that dismisses an entire show based on the first episode. We’ll give it another go next week, if only because it’s nice to see a BBC Three comedy show making references to things from before 2003. That’s about as close to ‘off-message’ as a full series on that channel is likely to get*.(*Discounting Family Guy.)
