As Vic himself would have said in his Novelty Island days: Very Poor!
26 July 2004 | by (local shop owner) – See all my reviews

This show had so many funny and capable performers yet this is not enough to save any show with no decent ideas, writing or sadly, any laughs at all. It was a complete waste of talent, resources and money. How it got commissioned on such feeble material is a mystery. It s a prime example of how sometimes TV executives overlook basic essentials of content because they are dazzled by an overall weak idea. If the material was better, it would have been marvelous. i would have loved to have seen classic performers like Ronnie Corbett and Richard Wilson appear with younger talent like Steve Coogan, Matt Lucas and Ronni Ancona. But an idea alone does not constitute a programme - least of all when it is messily executed and severely lacking in jokes.

All involved should be ashamed of this 'look, we are all best mates and funny as well' lazy half-arsed excuse for a comedy show. NOW GO TO YOUR ROOM AND MAKE US SOME GOOD SHOWS, YOU MUPPETS!!!
