"Get Your Balls Off My Green"
10 April 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

One bloke says it's good, the other says it's crap.

Me? I say some bits are good and some bits are crap.

If you find Milligan's personality attractive then you will be able to let him take you on a ride through his imagination. Lots of Hitlers of course and coppers with flashing lights on their helmets (helmets like these were actually tested by the Coventry force in the 1960s!). Semi naked tarts and swarthy foreigners will do little to endear the show to the PC brigade and some of the material does rely on Spike cracking up for it's laughs but it still has a higher 'hit-rate' than Monty Python.

The 'Pakistani Daleks' sketch is something of a classic and it might even have a bit of a message if you consider Milligan's Indian upbringing.

Finally, if you see the video 'The Best Of Q' I advise you to snap it up. It's very good value and it gives a good idea of what the show is about. It contains some of the very best sketches and now Spike's conked out it might be hard to find in years to come.
