Best thing to come out of Channel 4 TV
30 December 2002 | by (England, UK) – See all my reviews

Its a good show. Pity its finished now but still its good to get the "best bits of" videos that are available and i'm sure there will be some reruns. I'm surprised that the BBC never got hold of it. Channel 4 tends not to be a very good producer of comedy shows, the evidence shows in dull programmes like "Smack the pony" and "V Graham norton" which just don't compare to this show. Ad and Joe i hope will be hitting our screens soon with something similar. The toy movies on the show were just classic and very well thought of. Other funny bits include "the anachists" who try to bring down the system pathetically and "people place". The only down point i think is "Baaaad dad" its kinda ruins it all when you think of what else these boys could have put in its place but some of you seem to like it. Good show. 10 out of 10.
