A brilliant show
18 July 2001 | by (Cambridge, England) – See all my reviews

I caught an Episode of 'The Micallef Programme' by accident one day and ever since then I've been hooked. I entirely agree that there are elements of Alan Partridge, The Fast Show and Monty Python in there which just makes it all the more appealing for me.

It's original, so well written and performed and moves at a quick enough pace. The mixture of one-liners and longer sketches is an excellent one.

I too think that a mainstream UK channel should pick the series up and show it - Shaun Micallef deserves to be a huge star in the UK!!

I've managed to tape a few episodes of the second series but I would love to catch all the ones I've missed.

My favourite sketch so far is the wine cellar one. I screamed with laughter at that one.

So, to all the programme buyers at Channel 4, the BBC, ITV, SKY One - Please, please, please give this man the mainstream exposure he deserves!

By the way - I also think he's a bit of a heart-throb.
