Storyline

Set on a fictional Spanish island, Woody follows the fortunes of one of the UK's best undercover reporters. Woody (Novak) is forced to go on the run from the British authorities after being set up by his corrupt newspaper editor. Woody escapes to find the one man he can trust, his former mentor at the newspaper, Brutus (Walsh). Now an expatriate living a quiet life running a bar on a Spanish island, Brutus is initially less than thrilled to see Woody. However, he soon realises that he can profit by putting his trouble-making protege to work. Woody takes on a series of investigations on the island, running rings around the locals by using his astonishing ability to adopt a variety of guises at a moment's notice.

Very poor, certainly not funny
11 June 2015 | by deanpjackson_1973See all my reviews

Basically Kayvan Novak from facejacker and Bradley Walsh. Genuinely couldn't make it through the 1st episode.

Novaks comedy works in off the wall, short sketches, but it just doesn't work in this. It tries to be quick fire comedy and witty, but it just isn't. Rather pretentious oddly.

Maybe its the combination of Bradley Walsh as well. Walshs 'comedy' is basically prescribed and its delivery rather obvious, like a magician trying to be a comedian or a comedy uncle who has saved up one liners. Its just awkward. He is sometimes funny, but often not. Navak is often funny, but sometimes not. Combine the two trying to be witty and what results just isn't funny.

The 1st episode is just terrible. Full of holes in the story, really poor slapstick and badly delivered lines. I like facejacker, well some of it anyway, so wanted to like this, but it just doesn't work. Walsh belongs on game shows, he isn't bad at them, but a good comedian he isn't.

No idea what the other reviewers were watching. You would have to be pretty easily amused to think this witty. I'd go as far as saying they had vested interest as I can't imagine who this would appeal to.
