Great comedy show, but went a year or 2 past its use-by date
28 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

Initially starting off as an extension of the program 'Fast Forward' with the title 'Fast Forward's Full Frontal', within a year the show had totally replaced it's great but slowly aging predecessor to become one of the great comedy shows on Australian television. With the simplified title 'Full Frontal', every Thursday night was a guranteed blast.

It made a great start back in 1993 but the show really began to hit its stride around 1995. By this time the cast had settled down into well-developed roles and skits such as Australian National Nightly Network News, A Current Affair (featuring Eric Bana as Ray Martin), David McGahon's World and skits involving a former boxer named Milo Kerrigan (both played by Shaun Micallef) amongst others, whilst at the same time keeping ideas fresh and original.

Unfortunately nothing lasts forever and during the 1996 season things started to go downhill. Some of the skits were beginning to show their age and this was beginning to be a bit of a drag on the laughs. The producers seemed to be aware of this as well judging by the alterations they made, most notably with Shaun Micallef in the phasing out of his Milo Kerrigan character in favour of Nobby Doldrums, as well as finding alternate uses for his David McGahon character (such as the Roger Explosion series). Despite this however the alterations didn't really push far enough.

By 1997 'Full Frontal' was really starting to nosedive. Not only were the skits really starting to scrape for laughs, but the disappearance of some key cast members certainly didn't help matters. The new cast members that were recruited honestly weren't that good and further hurt the show. Despite continued attempts to keep the show fresh the ratings were falling and at the end of 1997 the show was cancelled.

All in all, a great show but judging from the way it ended up it was probably pushed for a year or 2 too long.
