More trash from the BBC...
14 May 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Yet more rubbish from the self indulgent, self congratulating, back slapping Marxists at the BBC... I can't believe so much work went into this programme, when it isn't remotely funny, nor worth watching. What is the point? It clearly isn't funny (except to pretentious fools who maybe should read the Emperor's New Clothes), so why go to all this effort to produce something that simply isn't worth watching? The sort of rubbish they can get away with on television nowadays tells me that the 'younger generation' are almost beyond hope, if they actually find this worth watching. No doubt this was commissioned by the same marxists who allowed the awful 'The Trip' to be made and broadcast. Still, we are forced to pay their wages on pain of imprisonment, because apparently the BBC is just so wonderful that they shouldn't have to compete in the marketplace...
