An admirable attempt at cop spoofery.
31 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

Unlike radeburger2000 I am actually going to criticise this show, not rant about how bad it is without explaining why. He says he can't write a good, funny movie; he can't write a good, insightful review either.

First of all A Touch of Cloth was not 10/10, as other reviewers have said, nor was it 1/10. It was a mix of some superb jokes, some good ones, and some duds. When you watch it remember, do not take it seriously. I found it did such a good job of LOOKING like a cop drama a part of me was trying to take it seriously, forgetting that this was just supposed to be silly and fun no matter how serious it was trying to seem.

I would say the pacing of the jokes was too quick at some points, barely giving one a chance to process one joke before another comes. Also the number of visual gags, some of which you might miss first time, are numerous. You CAN have too much of a good thing but overall I found the jokes more satisfying than not.

I wouldn't say it felt as natural as films like Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Naked gun, which it shares similarities with, sometimes appearing a bit smug in its knowledge of the subject it was parodying.

BUT as I said, overall I found it satisfying with more jokes hitting than not. The actors did a good job and like I said, it looks like a very convincing cop drama. I just hope they don't overload the next reported episodes and give the jokes a chance to breath
