Good first half, bad second half
4 January 2012 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

"Politics" is split in two for me, an excellent first half with lots of really, really funny jokes about politics and advertising, and a dull second half that I find unbearable. Essentially, from the moment Tim becomes "Timita", the rest is rubbish, and even gets worse and worse with a pointless ending which is silly without being funny.

But the first half is like a follow-up to the equally excellent "It might as well be string", with several good mock ads, both general and political ones. Tim's imitation of Margaret Thatcher is wonderful, spot on and very funny.

Thus, the episode is extremely hard to rate. The latter is a 5 at best and pretty much a flat zero at the end, but the first half is somewhere between 8 and 10.
