Badly received at the time but one of Coogan's best
12 December 2004 | by (Sunny Southend, UK) – See all my reviews

Recently watched this again, (two "episodes"), and I just can't fathom why it was poorly received. What it sends up, it sends up to absolute perfection. Maybe a lot of the humour was too subtle for some. Anyone who grew up watching cheesy Saturday night TV entertainment will revel in the sheer perfection of the presentation. The songs are funny and at the same time you end up whistling the tunes for long after ! Deserves another showing, 'cause, as another poster commented, Coogan managed to produce a whole series which didn't contain much to bring a smile to one's face. I refer, of course to, "Dr. Terrible's House of Horribles ". IMHO Steve C. should stick to what he does best. His sojourns into the film world are OK, but the half hour comedy short, just seems to suit him. Alan Partridge may have run it's course, but I bet Coogan's got another set of "Coogan's Run" in him somewhere. I always expected him to give Gareth Cheeseman another go. "Dearth of A Salesman", just has to be one of the top 10 funniest and smartest Brit comedies ever brought to TV.
