Never mind the Spicks and Specks
21 March 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Just wanted to add a quick note to say this show is an Australian version of the UK show "Never Mind the Buzzcocks". I've just never seen this acknowledged anywhere, but it just has to be, the two shows are too similar.

I really enjoy Spicks and Specks, but I think it pales a little in comparison to the UK show, as the few episodes I saw when I was in the UK all featured well known musicians. Whereas the Australian version sometimes pads the panel with obscure classical and musical theatre artists. That said, Adam Hills is always good, along with Al and Myf and the comedians are usually pretty good too. I especially like Ross Noble, who is a frequent panelist.
