Believe Nothing isn't necessarily a programme which breaks new ground, nor does it necessarily have an award-winning script, but one thing you would have to be a complete and total 'w*nk biscuit' (Bottom quote) to deny, is that Rik Mayall is absolutely amazing. From the facial expressions, to the delivery of lines, to his off-camera interaction with the studio audience... Rik is plain and simply a comedy genius and anyone who doesn't agree with that simply will not understand any of the style of humour Rik has used at all. You might go so far as to say he is funny even when he is being serious.
So, I would argue that even though the actual programme Believe Nothing may not be anything special on its own, with Rik Mayall as the main character, it is easily as good as anything else they are showing on British television at the moment.
Lets hope Rik is back on television TO STAY.
