Quotes

Harry Hill: Channel Five have got a new shark programme! This one was presented by Johnny Rotten - you know, from I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here? He had a very individual presenting style.
Johnny Rotten: Sharks. Born free. Unlike me. They're tax free. Leave them alone. I am. Alls I'm doing is swimming with them. You too can.
Harry Hill: Hmm. Yes. Here's some more from Johnny.

Don't Think, Just Enjoy it.
11 May 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is one of the few jewels in the ITV schedule. Not known for doing anything other than a total banker this little gem popped onto ITV screens several years ago and has quickly become a weekly staple of people who are fans of all types of comedy.

The format of mostly, just Harry sitting and giving glib comments of the weeks T.V. showing the clips concerned is simple enough, but the delivery and timing makes the interaction between viewer and presenter into a 'conversation in the pub' arrangement. This appears effortless but must take huge preparation.

Harry Hill's ability to get a bizarre angle on something which passed everyone else by is key to the comedy.

Most of all it is truly funny family entertainment, and let's face it, family comedy is usually only funny for the younger generation.
