Unlike some of the other comments here, i thought it was really really good. The more physical comedy (the extreme slapstick) has always drawn me to the british comedy, and then finally to rik & ade because they are the kings.
Sure, it's not as witty as Bottom (my all time fave series), Young Ones or Catflap, but it features some of the most bizarre slapstick ever filmed. Some of them are a bit too much, some of them (like the Babysitter sketch) are just CLASSIC Rik & Ade.
And as people have already pointed out, it's very unusual to see Rik as the agressor. I gave it 10/10.
(I recommend that you watch like 30 minutes / day for maximum viewing pleasure)
