Unfair to dismiss completely
23 November 2007 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I watched this series when it was aired 19 years ago in 1988 and recorded video of some of it which I still enjoy watching. Yes, it was very hit-and-miss but certain sketches/segments of it were excellent and brilliantly funny, demonstrating Thompson's gift for perfect comic timing and ingeniously original ideas - such scenes as Celebrity, Witchfinder's daughter, No puddings from the sweet trolley, the Dry cleaner's, Rapunzel. The problem was that it didn't know what it wanted to be: a comedy sketch show, song and dance, monologues...... So if you only saw the odd episode, then you didn't get the full breadth of what was being endeavoured. Over all though it was worth watching because the good bits were very good and very clever without being pretentious.
