Heavily Panned. Rightly So
28 July 2002 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

CHALK must be the most heavily criticized sit com to have been made by the BBC during the 1990s . That`s hardly surprising since it`s one of the worst sit coms the beeb decided to make. Perhaps the reason for the critics panning was the fact that the BBC decided to tout it as the new FAWLTY TOWERS ! .Yep you read that right , mind you many of the premises of CHALK may have worked if set in a hotel in Torquay but FAWLTY TOWERS had two outstanding comedy writers in Cleese and Booth and the cast were convincing and that is the key to comedy - just like in the best sci fi you have to be totally convincing on the writing and acting fronts . CHALK fails because the acting is truly awful especially David Bamber who`s idea of comedy is gurning and acting in a totally OTT manner , and going back to some of the episodes premises , if I remember correctly one features a corpse and another involves school inspectors . Ah so that`s why they`d work in FAWLTY TOWERS , they`ve already been used in Cleeses and Booth`s masterwork.

And I did notice that other reviewers at the IMDB have decided not to make their names and locations public. Is this in case the BBC will hold a grudge against them putting the boot into their baby ? I hope not and I have praised much of the beebs work in the past , and that`s why I`m surprised they can commission rubbish like CHALK
