Lucas and Walliams 10, the rest, meh
12 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The credit sequence features a bunch of extreme close-ups of faces yelling, and that's the problem with this show--most of the talent involved was proceeding on the premise that louder is funnier. Overly obvious, overly broad and overplayed is the tone of the majority of the comedy sketches in this series, with the exception of those contributed by Matt Lucas and David Walliams, which are little gems of subtlety in contrast to all the lame-brained bombast around them. Yes, subtle in contrast. Get the picture? The Lucas and Walliams bits show them in a developmental state between the raw energy of "Mash and Peas" and the more structured scenarios of "Little Britain." The deranged royal family commentator Peter Andre is the focus of most of the bits, still with his pants on but visibly decompensating from the delusional babbler of "Mash" into the erotomaniac that would become in "Britain" the radio and TV series.

As for the rest, depending on your taste for the aforementioned loud and obvious, feel free to fast-forward through it. Catherine Tate appears in an earlier version of a sketch that would later appear in her own personal sketch show if you're interested (I wasn't.)
