With ruthless US and Japanese investment banks circling Tuftons, a struggling two-hundred-year-old, family-run British bank, can its bumbling, incompetent chairman, Sir Charles Bunbury, fend off the onslaught and save the bank?
John Michael Higgins,
No. But with the amount of hype given to it by the BBC this falls WAY short of what is expected. I watched the first episode and gave it a second chance this week, out of hope more than expectation. I won't be watching next week.
Lazy homophobia, fat jokes, lack of gags, Horne is utterly charmless. The Gervais sketch was appropriate given that Horne is attempting to become a Gervais/Pegg facsimile himself.
I'd go as far as to say this program is the nadir of the British sketch show. Hopefully it'll act as a ground zero for genuine talent - not 'rising stars' who are given a vehicle and carte blanche and produce such depressing rubbish.
Did you catch the first two episodes of Horne & Corden? I did. FML.
