A side-splitting moan-athon from Britain's grumpiest men.
30 August 2006 | by LocoHeroSee all my reviews

The beauty of Grumpy Old Men is the well-articulated acidic wit of the guests. At a certain age u don't need to pretend stuff is cool when it's actually rubbish. They have elevated grumpiness to an art form, drawing on a life time of painful experiences.

Assembling a group of grumpy, world-weary blokes to moan about selected topics might sound boring but the show side-stepped political correctness and tapped a rich vein of sardonic, eloquent and well informed grumpiness that got right to the nub of each issue.

The grumpy old men included, amongst others, Arthur Smith, Will Self, John Peel, Rick Wakeman and Jeremy Clarkson. The subject matter up for discussion ranged from Pop Idol to Tony Blair to mobile phones to Christmas and beyond. Geoffrey Palmer provided a wry, understated narration.

I notice that of the 2 other comments so far written, one said it's aimed at young people to laugh at old people's grumpiness, the other that it's aimed at old grumpy people.

I've also just read the message board on which a number of teenagers say they agree with what the grumpy old men are griping about.

.... so it would seem the programme appeals to all sorts of people! My own view is that the guests are simply speaking the truth, and anyone with an ounce of sense can't help agreeing with them.
