An amusing and entertaining optional extra for fans of the proper series
25 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As with many reality shows, producers have made the very clever move of having shows around the main show where the main show is discussed. So with Big Brother we have several spin-offs to do this and with The Apprentice we have the "You're Fired" thirty minutes doing the same. It all makes sense because most of us watch these shows and then go to work and discuss them with our colleagues around the "water cooler". OK one could argue that television shouldn't be trying to replace social interaction but many viewers of these shows like to listen to people talk about the subject to enhance their enjoyment of the subject.

You're Fired doesn't really entertain as much as The Apprentice itself because mostly it is picking over the bones, however it does have some value because it is quite funny and also provides a bit more of a kicking for the losing contestant that night. The humour comes from Adrian Childs, who does have a nicely wry sense of humour and he does enjoy taking the mick out of the contestants and their actions. The losing contestants are mostly good sports and all hope to defend themselves without Alan Sugar bearing down on them. Some of them maybe just about manage it but mostly their failures are quite glaring and it is fun to watch them try to debate away the indefensible. The smart ones mostly accept their errors – the fun ones don't.

Of course the appeal is limited to fans of the series and even those that like the series may not see the point of listening to other people talk about it, but, despite this, it is quite amusing and entertaining as an optional add-on to the series proper.
