A bottom five episode.
19 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

While this episode isn't really bad, it definitely isn't up to The Comic Strip's standards.Maybe if you are over sixty and know about beatniks, it might me better.Everyone does what they are known for this time.Rik Mayall does his Young Ones/Dangerous Brothers character.Dawn French plays the slut.Danny Peacock is the crazy one and Peter Richardson is the cool guy with all the good one-liners.In that sense it's typical Comic Strip.After that, there's not much entertainment here.It has the twist ending we expect from the series but the story is severely lacking.I did enjoy it more the second time but there definitely won't be a third time.If you're not going to watch the entire series, don't watch this.
