Storyline

The Little Britain team parodies the various types of characters associated with life in a major British airport. That includes flight and ground staff from regular - and low budget airlines, as well as officials from customs and immigration, plus some colorful passengers, some up to no good either.

Just repeats the formula of Little Britain, to not very great effect
21 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

A parody of reality shows set at airports, in the form of various sketches involving different exaggerated characters working for the FlyLo airline owned by the enigmatic but buffoonish Omar Baabaa, as well as those on the sidelines including two airport check in girls and other people who work at the airport.

On paper, for fans of Little Britain, Come Fly With Me couldn't fail. It's the same concept and set up, and even produced by a company named after that show. And it's an inspired idea to send up programmes like Airport that in the 90s were the pioneers for the reality TV craze that dominates British TV these days. It all should work...but somehow this time it doesn't. The potential is all there, golden and shining as it was in LB, but somehow the laughs fail to generate and the result is just something throw away and tragic.

Maybe the formula Walliams and Lucas used when LB first came out earned it a place in the national consciousness (and everyone really did go crazy over it at the time) but in a time with shows such as The Inbetweeners, Benidorm and Peep Show about, it just gets seen as the one joke and slightly irritating set up that it is. They are certainly a lazy double act, and this shows most when the cracks that caused the LB ship to sink soon begin to show here, in the shape of repetitive sketches (the angry husband and wife bothering the black check in girl, Precious the coffee shop worker, the burger bar worker) that rely on catch phrases and repeating the same gag every time.

Memories of LB's time at the top may well be all that keep Walliams and Lucas's comedic legacy alive, at a time when maybe the British public wanted to sit back and chuckle at something a bit more undemanding and less high brow. Because for sure, this series about flying fails to take off. **
