A great sequel.
12 November 2016 | by (Drowning in a sea of brown & black.) – See all my reviews

Bad News was one of the best episodes and should have gotten it's own series.If there were twelve of these, I'm sure they would all be great.All of the characters are funny.Rik's character Colin cracks me up every time he talks.This time Vim has been offered a record contract if he can get the original band back together.He is quickly able to get them back together but nothing has changed, the guys can't stop fighting.Of course the contract is very one sided and the band doesn't get any money.Even though no one is buying the record, they somehow get booked at Castle Donnington's Monsters Of Rock Festival which has tragic results for them.This is The Comic Strip at its best.Everyone should see this.
