I was expecting better.....
23 May 2017 | by OrangieTooDopeSee all my reviews

This is definitely the most political this series has ever gotten.Even though they are well known for making fun of Thatcher and the right wing, they don't usually push it this much.It's typical Comic Strip silliness with an outrageous story line and an ending you never saw coming.Tony Blair has been charged with murder and he has to go on the run.While trying to find a friend to hide him(which turns out to be quite difficult), he ends up killing a bunch of other people(which is very similar to the Gino episode).Instead of portraying George W. Bush as a moron, Peter Richardson turns him into Robert Deniro in Goodfellas and it's extremely funny.But the rest of the story isn't as good.This is just an average episode.
