If you've seen 'Up Pompeii!', then you've seen this.
21 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This TV series will probably always have a certain audience among young heterosexual male audiences, not least because of the number of well-endowed scantily-clad actresses wandering across the screen in harem girl costumes. Make no mistake, for with a central female character named Boobiana (Anna Brett), this is one TV series that you won't see being screened at the next AGM of your local Womens Lib group (!!).

This short-live series was a follow-up to Howerd's earlier TV show "Up Pompeii", with the location transplanted from Ancient Rome to Medieval Baghdad. As with "Pompeii", the set-up was little more than a backdrop for an endless series of Howerds' trademark double entendres and risqué gags, and he starts each episode with a prologue — a "to camera" that almost always never gets finished and has nothing at all to do with the main plot. The series was filmed in front of a live audience, with which Howerd interacted. When Howerd addresses the audience, the other characters don't usually take notice - he is the only one in on the joke. And that's okay, because after all, it's his show!! One for fans of Frankie Howerd only or those who have a Harem Girl fetish, but quite honestly "Pompeii" was better, and if you've seen that show, why would you want to see the entire show recycled again into this? There's a very good reason "Whoops Baghdad" only ran for six episodes. It just wasn't that good. 4/10
