5 September 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I remember liking some of this series when it was first shown on BBC television but as many people have pointed out, it was really just a forerunner and template for 'Bottom.'

Far too much talking to the viewer, and strident shouting so beloved of the so called alternative comedians at the time. It also leaves a somewhat nasty taste in the mouth to think that the show's writer, Ben Elton, later became everything he ranted against here, the showbizzy celeb luvvies. I still recall the shock I had when I heard that Elton had written a musical with Andrew Lloyd Webber. Sell-out, thy name is Ben Elton...

As for the episode here, Richie is blackmailed by the Nolan Sisters, proving once again, that singers should stick to singing and not acting. Harry Enfield, Stephen Fry,Hugh Laurie and Chris Barrie all put in appearances and shout along with the rest of the cast.

Time hasn't been kind to this programme and it looks as creaky and clichéd as the targets it was venting it's spleen at.
