Derivative, unfunny drivel from two very average 'comedians' (with a lot of canned laughter)
I just started watching this on BBC2 and I can't watch any more. I really can't. It's so pathetic and annoyingly unfunny. Watson and Oliver are the BBC's latest comedy 'find' and I wish they'd left them where they found them. This is so derivative it's embarrassing. It's like they watched the last series of French and Saunders (the totally shameless, doing-it-for-the-money, unfunny one where Dawn and Jennifer were both past it) and decided to copy it lock, stock and barrel. Throw in a bit of Catherine Tate, some Julie Walters (Ms Walters please sue) and copious amounts of truly irritating canned laughter and - hey presto - a crap series by two Z grade comedians.
What's on? Watson and Oliver. My advice is to switch off.
