Trivia

An advert for the video/DVD compilation "The Best of 2DTV" was banned in early 2003, as it featured a sketch wherein President George W. Bush puts his video in a toaster. UK law states that adverts may not be offensive to individuals and that representations of living people can only be used with their permission. See more »

Terrible
16 November 2004 | by mellomehSee all my reviews

I believe I was once a fan of this.

The newest series has been the worst thing I have ever seen. The jokes are extremely poor, they've got rid of the Dead Ringers team and that music played in the background to each animation is embarrassing. Somebody in the production team obviously thought that a low trombone note would increase the hilarity of each animation's 'punchline' no end. They were wrong, very wrong.

The animation is extremely poor, considering the gaps in between the series you would expect some new animating techniques but no, it's the same old animation, same old art.

If you want animated satire then just look at what the BBC has to offer. The excitingly diverse Monkey Dust is being aired on BBC2 on Mondays at 10pm. If Monkey Dust is the Bremner Bird and Fortune of animation, then 2DTV is the Alistair McGowan.
