Oh Cod!
6 January 2007 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Iceland extends its fishing limits by a further 2,000 miles, which alas encompasses most of the British Isles. Tim learns this the hard way when, sitting by a riverbank one day, he is shot at by a boat load of eskimos.

With most of the U.K.'s fish reserves now officially belonging to another country, Graeme tries to end the shortage by breeding a super-cod, which he calls Brian. But he becomes emotionally attached to the fish, and can't bring himself to kill it. Tim and Bill don't feel the same way, and a battle of wills ensues...

With 'Jaws' having become the highest grossing film of all time the year before, it was inevitable that 'The Goodies' would sooner or later take a pop at it. John Williams' theme is heard as the cod takes to the Serpentine. One wishes they had parodied 'Jaws' more closely; its still a popular film. Too much time is spent spoofing the 'Cod War' which, alas, results in this episode looking more dated than it should.

Funniest moment - Bill attempting to frighten the fish by putting on a Nicholas Parsons mask!
