An all-time classic show
7 March 2001 | by bananamanfanSee all my reviews

This is one of my favourite TV shows, it's so funny! OK, occasionally they may have had a dud episode, like the one with them dressed as toothpaste tubes and bouncing around the world for charity, but most episodes are absolutely hilarious, like 'The End' or 'Earthanasia'. Graeme Garden, Bill Oddie and Tim Brooke-Taylor are funny and if you can get a chance to watch the show, don't miss it.
