Genius
21 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A great DVD release from the BBC, though sadly lacking in the extras department, and, strangely, missing a few scenes that were present in the original VHS release. Oh well, if thats the price we have to pay for finally getting this hilariously surreal show on DVD then so be it. It was worth the wait. Both series were fantastic, and though series two has its standout moments (the Masterchef sketch being one of many highlights) its really the first series that contains the best material. Watching it again now after 13 years, and it still feels fresh, and is funnier than pretty much every comedy churned out over the last decade! Inspired characters (the bra men, Uncle Peter, Otis and Marvin) - great parodies of British TV standards of the time (Food and Drink, Masterchef, Antiques Roadshow) - and lets not forget the music - fantastic - surreal - in short this show is nothing less than genius!

Bob: "Yeah Vic, but how does it work?"

Vic: "I don't know, but it DOES!"
