The series earned the dubious distinction of being named by the British newspaper Metro as one of the "10 sitcoms even worse than The Wright Way (2013)". See more »
A Sit-Com Where The H is silent
There`s not much left to say involving the BBC`s much hyped comedy MAD ABOUT ALICE so perhaps I should have the last word .
As everyone has mentioned the opening credits involve a song sung by someone who cannot sing and it`s no shock to discover the person singing it is an actress who can`t act either . In fact no one acting in this series seems to be able to act but that wasn`t what yanked my chain , what really annoyed me more than anything are the muppets in the audience who urinate themselves with laughter at the events on screen . For example in a scene Jamie Theakston ( I don`t know what his character`s name is but Theakston even has a problem playing himself ) is cutting his toenails and whoops of laughter are heard . A toe nail flys across the screen and the stench of urine comes wafting from the audience who are wetting themselves laughing
I fail to see what`s funny and if I remember correctly the last series of I`M ALAN PARTRIDGE also suffered heavily from an intrusive laughter track . So stop drowning us with laughter Mr BBC comedy producers . We are not amused
