Ignore that other guy. This is THE Saturday morning TV show!
This is probably the best Saturday Morning kids show since TISWAS! Saying that, the first show that I caught, I thought that they were trying too hard to be funny...trying to be like TISWAS.
I was hooked after my second viewing.
McCourt and Wood throw in sly innuendo's that kids don't understand and adults can enjoy. It can be a little controversial at times which is exactly what is needed to be successful and to garner a cult following (which it has).
Amazingly, there are never celebrity guests (apart from the comic relief shows) as Dick and Dom favour their guests to be regular viewers (kids).
Throw in some cartoons, which I think detract from the fun of the show but I guess the guys need breaks every now and again to prep the next slots etc.
The regular characters are funny, including the ugly cat, the diddy Dick and Dom in the cupboard, the Farmer Guy, and the games, particularly Bogies, are top notch genius.
Another hilarious sequence is the Bungalow Loft bit. It's absolutely demented and capped off nicely by a Benny Hill-esque dummy Dom falling down the steps from the loft to the ground below.
The insanity is just non-stop.
I have found, this year, through observation, that this show has a few things in common with the old ITV show "Your Mother Wouldn't Like It".
The Producer, Steve Ryde, used to be in that show and also "Palace Hill" (two excellent shows), the farmer guy is played by Ian Kirkby who played Loaf in Your Mother Wouldn't Like It and the Turtle thing that pops out of the toilet and masticates it's victims after telling them a poor joke, is quite similar to the Tapeworm puppet/character from Your Mother Wouldn't Like It, which also delivered poor jokes.
Forget the wannabe's on the other channels, Dick and Dom are genuinely funny even to the point of appearing crazed at times. I think Ant and Dec ought to be cowering in fear for their jobs with Dick and Dom around! Sick, Twisted, Mucky, Hilarious...Dick and Dom In Da Bungalow...It will be a long time before there is a Saturday Morning show as entertaining as this.
