Cue the flour! Cue the land mines! Cue Hitler!
13 June 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Yet another of The Goodies' best episodes! This is in three parts. After a nice intro with Bill trying to compose a hit, follows part one, an "Idol"-style show, "New Faeces", and just like it is often criticized for in our days, the idea is to humiliate the participants. Although the humor is somewhat straight-forward, and the dead jury member feels a bit desperate, it is still very funny, not least Bill's and Graeme's folk song "The world is full of women and men". Part 2 is "The 50's revival revival" with a positively fantastic rock'n'roll parody. In part 3, Bill and Graeme sings a "flower power" song while Tim flips out completely as producer, and so does the episode. (See other review for whom they are mocking.)

All but the very ending is first rate. The ending drifts away into such total chaos that there is no logical ending any more, and "cue political broadcast", is a very brief punchline that seems like an excuse to stop the weirdness. That makes the ending not great but fully acceptable.

Good show! Easily one of the ten best episodes!
