It's A load Of Balls
21 September 2005 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

This show hit the headlines well before it was transmitted due to a prank played on Tom Cruise where he was squirted in the face during a mock interview . Ah you remember seeing that on the news don't you ? Someone playing a prank on Tom Cruise , the same Tom Cruise who is legendary as being a great guy , someone who goes out of his way to meet his fans , someone who bends over backwards for an adoring public and who is recognised as the most sincere , genuine and nicest guy in Hollywood today and someone plays a prank on him . As people picked up on this the question was quickly asked " Why didn't they try that with Russell Crowe ? " After watching a couple of episodes of BALLS OF STEEL the answer is quite simple - The jokers are total and absolute cowardly spivs

The format is almost identical to JACKASS, TRIGGER HAPPY TV and BEADLE'S ABOUT except that presenter Mark Dolan comes out with laughable hyperbole that " Britain's rising comedy stars put their arse on the line for your entertainment " , laughable because none of the people on the show are any kind of " rising star " of comedy or anything else , while " entertainment " should come under the trades description act but most laughable of all is the claim that anyone put " their arse on the line " because:

THIS SHOW IS 100% STAGED - IT'S TOTALLY FAKE

The producers will deny this of course thereby insulting the public even more but it's very easy to see through this charade . Someone invents a new game called " human rodeo " where a man jumps on the backs of passers by . If you want to give it a name I think " Assualt " would be a better title . Strange that no one caught up in this game thinks of calling the police or giving their assailant a bloody good kicking . There's also another game called " Urban sprint " where a man goes out of a shop with a tag that causes the alarms to go off and he's pursued by security men who strangely never catch him and the game ends with the man running into a fast food joint and telling the staff to " Give me a f--ckin' cup of coffee you f--kers " Are we to honestly believe that these sequences are genuine ? Of course their not . Shops and fast food joints in shopping malls would only be too happy to see Channel 4 approach them asking if they'd like to take part in " a dangerous stunt show " since it gives them free publicity . It's the same with members of the public who happy with a few seconds of fame agree to let a man jump on their back , or take them on a dodgy taxi ride or allow a hot brunette to chat up their boyfriend . These victims are in on the joke and for the producers of this unfunny POS to claim that they're not is a blatant lie

One of the most insulting television shows to have been produced . Hopefully the " stars " of this crap will never be seen again
