Probably THE best....
28 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

this is probably my favourite of the comic strip episodes, the pastiches are terrific, with unforgettable one-liners and homages to the classic westerns we all know. rik mayall and peter richardson are absolutely brilliant as the two leads, with adrian edmondson turning in a hilarious performance as billy balfour 'the man with no name'. this was one of the very few episodes which rik mayall co-wrote, and there are definite bits or lines that just scream out 'rik wrote this bit!', and with peter richardson and pete richens writing it too, there were plenty of typical comic strip style jokes. this is one episode that you should definitely see, you most certainly won't regret this half hour of pure genius.
