Proper bo, I tell thee.
9 August 2003 | by (Up a tree on Hampstead Heath) – See all my reviews

In case you were wondering...that title derives from a Craig David song containing the line "Re-rewind, the crowd say bo' selecta", which roughly translates as "Play that record again, DJ". Trivia note over, this tasteless, shamelessly stupid and jaw-droppingly outrageous series is definitely not for all tastes, but if you're as fed up as I am with the constant flow of dull, ego-crazed, media-whoring microcelebrities that flood our televisions and newspapers, then you might want to give it a try. Be warned, it's not all good - hey, even Monty Python had their off-days! - but if you're receptive to a bit of rubber-masked, over-exaggerated silliness, chances are you'll be quoting the characters and the catchphrases for weeks. Definite traces of Spike Milligan, the Python boys, Spitting Image and Viz comic pulse through the humour, and it's all very British, right down to Christina Aguilera's Liverpudlian accent ("I'm as dirrty as you like, squirrels - the lot") and the regular references to taboo body parts and functions, masked with imaginative slangwords like "growler", "chubby", "sex wee" and "grapes". The funniest sketches involve the hormonally-crazed Bear, who alternates between insulting the hell out of visiting B-listers, trying to keep his, shall we say, 'emotions' under control, and hurling abuse at his friend Stephen, an inoffensive red squirrel. You'll either like it or hate it - there's no middle ground - but kudos to Channel Four for giving this lunatic free reign to ride roughshod over the nation's sensibilities.
