Why, Oh Why?????
16 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In the words of Comic Book Guy - "WORST EPISODE EVER!"

I don't see why Ricky Gervais was even asked to write an episode; his feeble attempts at comedy ( The Office and Extras) are about as funny as watching paint dry. Matt Groening made a serious mistake letting this dirge be made! This was plugged to the hilt by SKY, claiming it would be the funniest show that The Simpsons creators had released in a very long time, even giving it pride of place in their monthly free magazine. I know most people don't get British humour, but Ricky Gervais doesn't even class as British funny, he's more like something that comes out of the old Eastern Bloc regions of Europe when it comes to comedy...i.e. NOT!
