Never heard of Reeves and Mortimer, however...
17 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

What I see when I watch this program is 2 middle aged men with no particular skills or ability who have probably failed at any attempts at any sort of career and have resorted to bottom of the barrel easy-to-write gags with no character based humour at all.

I probably sound like somebody who's 'no fun' for saying this, but when I think back to shows like The Extras, It's always sunny in Philadelphia and South Park I laugh.. When I think back to this show I'm going to think 'How sad..'.

The setup for this show comes in form of 10 second lines for each character which are sung in such a way as to make us think "oooh how random and fun!" - My understanding is that one of them owns a flat, the other one is just there for no reason - and Matt Berry (doing his usual character) turns up every so often.

If you've seen 'the extras' by Gervais and are familiar with 'when the whistle blows' - this exact show is more or less what they are making fun of... However I doubt they would have known back then just how bad a BBC sitcom could get!
