Not bad for a Keith Allen episode.
24 May 2017 | by (Butt Town) – See all my reviews

According to the other review, this is some of Kevin Allen's best work.Unfortunately, Kevin Allen isn't even in it.Keith Allen is and considering most of his work is trash, this is definitely a highlight of his career.It's your typical Comic Strip episode with lots of bizarre dark comedy, things that don't make sense and an ending that you never saw coming.Gino is running from the police and gets into some crazy situations along the way.Although they never really explain why he is running(later they imply he robbed someone or something), everything he does while running gets exaggerated, making him look like an insane murderer who would do anything to avoid being captured.Like I said before, not bad for a Keith Allen episode.
