Big Bad World is a comedy about what happens when you wait for life to begin. Ben has just graduated and the world should be his oyster, but he quickly finds himself back in his hometown and nursing his as yet unformulated dreams. He's also back to hanging out with the same old gang; too-smart-for-her-own-good charity mugger Meg, guitar-obsessive bedsit-philosopher Eggman and University-refuser and unashamed year-round-wearer-of-shorts-and-flip-flops Oakley. If it weren't for the frequent overdraft charges, Ben might almost believe the last three years of his life never happened. Written by Anonymous

Clichéd as hell, and not even funny
14 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

With such a promising and excellent cast, you'd think this TV show would be amazing. Blake Harrison, Sean Walsh, how could it go wrong? Well, it did. As good as the cast is, the characters are two dimensional archetypes with no originality or individuality. They do nothing original with the characters to separate them from other TV characters from the past. In fact, I'm not even sure they all have personalities. Then, there's the story lines. The main character likes the girl who goes out with someone else. Gee, how groundbreaking! And his only female friend likes him as well? Oh, so original! Every story from these episodes has been done before. People think he's gay, a birthday bash gone wrong, it's like the writers aren't even trying! In fact, based on the jokes used on the show, I am sure they're not trying. Not one moment on this show has made me crack a smile. And with these great actors, that is just shameful.
