An interesting take on selling your soul to the devil.
24 May 2017 | by O2DSee all my reviews

This is another episode that takes place in America.It opens with shots of Times Square but every time they show outside during the actual episode, it's clear that they are not in America.That doesn't bother me, I just thought I would point it out.This time we get to see Coltrane do the American accent(and Saunders too) and I just love it.Plus we get to hear Nigel Planer's American jew accent, which he nailed.It's a great story and the song Demonella is actually pretty good.My only issues with this episode are Ade playing a bass guitar and the sound is clearly a six string guitar.Was that a joke?Ade surely knows better.And Richardson just using his own voice for Genghis Khan.That was lame.Those are things most people wouldn't have noticed, at least the first time, and they don't hurt the episode.Of course they have the typical Comic Strip twist at the end and if you say you saw it coming you are a liar.This is definitely an episode you should see.
