Racing with unusual vehicles
13 June 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a good Goodes episode, but with some weak points. On the positive side, it sure is funny and has an excellent ending, but on the other hand, some of the slapstick is too simple. In particular, the sequence when they hide in the car stretching out false legs in various directions is severely over-used and not funny in the long run. This reduces the enjoyment with the slapstick part.

But the funny moments dominate. Highlights include the exploding trousers, the villain saboteur, and french people dressed in stripes, beret and carrying baguettes, Greame's home- made car, and the driving exercise with Bill as pedals. So the episode very much ends up at the higher part of the scale.
