STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs

It would seem that Friday night comedy on the BBC is in a pretty dire state at the moment,after both series of the dreadful All About Me,the execrable Eyes Down and now this misfiring effort.

The premise follows the exploits of the titular Alice (Amanda Holden) following her separation from husband Doug (Jamie Theakston) as they struggle to attempt to reconcile and bring up their young son.

If AAM's opening song is rather schmaltzy and annoying,then Mad About Alice has an opening theme song that multiples those problems tenfold.The two leading stars (John Cleese and Prunella Scales they ain't) apparently seem to be churning out a chringe-worthy,just plain awful melody to even tackier caricatures of themselves prancing around in half real-life/caricatures of themselves,which will make you herald back to the days when Chuck Norris thought he could croon along to the tune of his Walker:Texas Ranger show's opening theme.

As for the script (which so many other people seem to have been complaining about),I'll be as fair to it as I can and say that it does at least attempt to sound impressive,with lines like ("Mom,I've got a lot on my plate right now." "Jake,you're ten.The only thing you've got on your plate is fish fingers") here and there.The trouble is,it's a comedy series.....and it just isn't funny.None of it.Not even faintly.In fact,the more it tries and tries to be mind-blowingly hilarious,the more it just seems to end up sucking more co*k than both Elton John and Will Young combined.

The final series aired tonight,with (possible spoiler) Alice finalising her divorce and celebrating the engagement of one of her friends.Somehow,I don't think we'll be following her adventures any further than that.

Oh well,that's another season of Only Fools and Horses repeats on the way then.*
