Droll sketch show following people in transit during the rush hour.
24 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Judging by the presence of some key people on board with this production, namely Adam Buxton (Adam and Joe Show) and Charlie Brooker (Screenwipe, TV Go Home), this show had the potential to be something truly original, fresh and most importantly, funny. Clearly however something went very wrong. Instead of utilising the potential of the shows set up 'people in cars (occasionaly buses) at rush hour' for sharp observational humour, the premise is reduced to little more than a gimmick through which the show defines itself against the legion of mediocre British sketch shows.

Rush Hour does nothing inventive with its format, nor strives to revive perhaps a flagging area of British TV comedy. There are moments within the show however that have potential and made me titter, but these were sadly fleeting and the editing of these sketches (such as a child bumping his head on the dashboard after not wearing his seat belt) causes them to out-stay their on screen welcome. I do fear that I may be judging the show too harshly, but I feel like a disappointed teacher that expected better of her pupils.

And here is were I end with an also not very witty comparison between comedy shows and buses, but I'm still waiting for three to come along at once. I'm going to file this one in the same place I put the IT crowd.
