Young Ones Turning In Their Graves
10 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sadly, I have to agree with the majority of viewer comments so far. As much as I enjoyed Blackadder and think that Ben Elton is an intelligent and genuine human being with a good, if patchy, track record, for me Blessed fails on all levels.

Primarily consisting of irritatingly smug middle class characters delivering deeply obvious and unfunny lines in a stilted way that made the performances in Ever Decreasing Circles seem like Lenny Bruce on crack, perhaps the worst sections involved the occasionally hapless depictions of musicians in a recording studio, which seemed to be based on half-remembered episodes of Rock Follies.

In many ways, it's sad to see someone who subverted and refreshed the nature of sitcom in the 1980s produce such a dated, tired, clichéd and hopelessly out of touch series. Constantly at odds with the way real people live, speak and look, it appears that Elton's art has turned into everything The Young Ones seemed to be fighting against.
