Hilarious show!
25 October 2006 | by general-melchettSee all my reviews

The show is absolutely dreadful to look at - it looks cheaper than an expired cucumber from Netto, and the toy movie and Star Wars sets are evidently made from cardboard. But that only makes it better - the show itself is absolutely hilarious, and is so original - nobody else has ever had, or probably ever will have, this idea. I have always enjoyed watching this show - Adam and Joe's cunning plans are always very funny (and sometimes wise). Yes, we know that the "Record Store Guide" clips are arranged, and there is always either Adam or Joe behind the counter, but the "Dr. Spankle's Waxorama" clip is really fun to watch, and all the toy movies are great - "Saving Private Lion" is my personal favourite. This show is not on the famous end of the spectrum, but was it made to be? Another clip that I liked was "The 1980's House" - it is a shame that they didn't create a second one of them. On the whole, Adam and Joe's work is a hilarious watch - they made it themselves, and prove to us all that high budgets and all-star casts are not the only things that produce great comedy. Absolutely top-hole is this show - you must get it when you can. They sell it in Music Zone and other shops - it isn't hard to get your hands on, and is a classic slice of cult comedy. A spiffing (and pant-wetting) job! 9/10
