The resurrection of a brilliant show
27 July 2002 | by (Cheshunt, Herts, England) – See all my reviews

This was a delight to watch for fans of Fantasy Football, which in its original format had ended in the mid 90s. The comeback, as a series running throughout the 1998 World Cup, was really good. Frank and David were back to their best, sat on the sofa in a flat-like studio, welcoming celebrity guests (such as Tracey Ullman, Sean Bean, Noel Gallagher and the infamous Johnny Rotten) to view clips selected by Frank and David, and to discuss the various goings-on of the World Cup. The Phoenix from the Flames sketches probably reached their peak in this series of the programme. Hilarious sketches, such as the recreation of a Klinsmann dive, and the Patrick Batiston incident when a goalkeeper, Schumacher, mowed him down and got off scot-free. In one of these sketches, Frank and David were taunting a former Czech international, who left, and so Frank goes into a phone box to phone him back in the Czech Republic to apologise and tell him that they just want to recreate the goal he scored to beat Germany in a past international. Upon Frank saying this, there's a tap at the door of the phone box, and the guy has returned, luggage on his arms, telling Frank "I got here as quick as I could". That was just wonderful, but you need to see it to find it funny. It sounds less funny typing it, but on seeing it I was in stitches and have remembered it 4 years on.
