Very good topical comedy
28 April 2017 | by (Essex) – See all my reviews

This BBC panel game is mostly based on the week's events and media coverage. It's very funny most of the time.

It varies in quality, depending on who is taking part during that episode. Whilst most are good, there are some episodes which are mediocre.
