Avoid it - it's rubbish
22 July 2008 | by redhenrySee all my reviews

Forget the offence taken by soft-lad Catholics, what about the offence to people who like comedy and animation. Not funny, not clever, not witty and not interesting. The character of The Pope is SOOOOO annoying that just thinking about Ruby Wax's voicing of it wants to make me slap her - hard. The other characters are bordering on boring and none are remotely unique or eliciting laughs. Do yourself a favour and spend the time watching other things.

I am not sure how they got the go ahead for this. Even on paper it must have come across as rubbish, although the lure of some of UK's better comics must have helped it over the line. It's not in the league of your better known animated series, and in fact is not even close.
