A neglected masterpiece
16 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Hippies is possibly one of the funniest programs ever shown on TV. Rays East German car in Muddy Hippies almost gave me an asthma attack I was laughing so much. How cack like Two Pints of Lager... can be on almost constant rotation when Hippies doesn't even appear on DVD beggars belief. Julian Rhind Tutts effortlessly cool Alex is the perfect foil to Simon Peggs spokesman of a generation, Ray, while the rest of the cast are also excellent, especially Rays silently suffering father. Try and catch this on the late night comedy channels - its worth not being able to get up for work the next morning.
