Meh...
14 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

Having not seen the Aussie "The Games" that this is supposed to strongly resemble I don't have anything really to compare it to other than The Office (US and UK both). I don't think it's quite as funny as I expected but not all that dull either. It was amusing to see all the dancing around sensibilities, especially with the "countdown" clock silliness, and it was nice to see Olivia Colman in this, I liked her a lot in "Rev.". All in all I was entertained by the first episode but I hope for better as the episodes progress. I would hope there were a lot of inside jokes that Londoners would get better than myself on the other side of the pond. I can't help but wonder if this might not have been funnier to follow around the actual people involved in carrying this off and showing that during the games. If they have time to watch this I hope they are suitably amused.
