This show just got better and better... Please let it return...
26 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When I watched episode 1 of the Bubble I thought it was funny but also that the host (David Mitchell) and the panellists were not quite comfortable with the format. As the series progressed I felt that David found his feet as host and became more able to steer the programme and the comedy content and as a result of this he got the best out of the panellists and himself - so inevitably, the show just got funnier and funnier. Episode 5 was particularly funny all the way through, the 'general goo' interaction was a particular favourite! There were also points of real hilarity, particularly when David became the focus of the panellists wit; for example, the hilarious discussions about 'Pipes the poltergeist' and 'Globalhypercolour' really were gems! I'm still to see the last in the series (broadcast tonight) but I have had feedback from someone at the live recording who said it was better than ever! It will be a real shame if The Bubble isn't commissioned for a second series, it may be more expensive to make than other panel shows such as 'Mock the Week' and 'Have I Got News for You' but it's different in its approach, it has started so well and can only get better in my opinion! Please BBC, recommission this programme!
