Crap!
22 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Dead Man Weds My Arse.

I saw the first episode of this and it was crap! Maybe 1 good joke in half an hour. Dave Spikey is great in Phoenix Nights, but outside of that, not so great. The jokes are predictable and badly set up and that headline joke went on for too long, and they weren't even funny in the first place!

And I know everyone loves Johnny Vegas but I don't think hes even funny at all, he just shouts bolos all the time.

I personally wouldn't watch this, thats half an hour of my life I'm not getting back. Me and my friends agreed were definitely not gonna watch it again.
