Written on the coach?
25 April 2015 | by philblakemanSee all my reviews

A political comedy set on the coaches of the four main parties during their 2015 Election Campaign.

I hoped for a little more but it was horribly bad, a complete lack of nuance and just weak caricature led comedy with jokes sign-posted from 2 constituencies away. Labour find Ed embarrassing, the Lib Dems are humiliated, UKIP are bigots, you get the idea.

It lacks the Machiavellian brilliance of House of Cards, the perceptiveness of the Thick of It or the wit of Yes Minister.

As awkward as watching Ed eat a bacon sandwich and as cringe-worthy as Nick apologising (again).

What a shame...
