Hilarious spinoff, but see the TV show first
21 November 1999 | by (Washington DC) – See all my reviews

This spinoff, from the British TV series "The Fast Show", shines with sparks of wit and comedic genius. It goes far beyond any of the effort of the SNL movie spinoffs. Unfortunately, those who are unfamiliar with the characters from the Fast Show (the titular Ted & Ralph) may require more time to understand the characters. Probably, a viewer should watch a couple episodes of "The Fast Show" before they watch this.

I admit I am biased. I believe that the authors (and actors) Charlie Higson and Paul Whitehouse are two of the cleverest comedians ever to come out of England. The story is based on humorous characters rather than relying on the cliched comical situations of American sit-coms. The plot is simple. If the painfully reticent Ralph wants to retain his lands he has to marry... soon. So he begins an odyssey to find a wife, which brings him into contact with many different and bizarre women. The plot is basically a coathanger for showcasing the comedy that typifies the "The Fast Show". Quick, quirky vignettes of odd characters. Think of it as a British SNL, only without the unnecessary musical groups and the overly long skits that die without editing. The show is the best kept secret in televised comedy. Hopefully, someday, it will make its way to American shores.
