New Series 2000
21 June 2000 | by dlowe-2See all my reviews

GGM maintains the high standard we have been used to. Few sketch shows can boast that there are no "weak-links" in the cast. (Not even "Monty Python" ). All four of the GGM are versatile performers..Including Dave Lamb.(Mind you I'm not sure Kulvinder Ghir is the greatest singer!) The new series seemed to me a little "naughtier" than before, in terms of language, but I'm not complaining about the unexpected flashes of Nina Wadia's midriff! Even the songs in GGM (Not usually my favourite part of a comedy show) are funny and relevant. All the usual favourites in top form and some clever new characters too with spoofs on a lot of UK shows e.g motoring and home-shopping. Oh yes and alot of mentions of Guildford and Hounslow.

The "Coopers" and their friends caused a bit of a stir with a sketch involving a visit to an English church and the bible which didn't go down too well with some viewers. But then GGM has always been even-handed with which religions/beliefs it tackles.

Plenty of scope left still I hope for another new series.
