Weak
18 November 2016 | by richardjfrancisSee all my reviews

Writing good satire is hard. You have to elevate it above the obvious and the mundane. This fails rather spectacularly to do this. The jokes were very obvious (and repetitive) and it looked like a university rag week project that was well funded. Years ago - Malcolm Bradbury wrote 'The Gravy Train' about life from the perspective of several Brussels bureaucrats - with statuesque performances from Ian Richardson, Judy Parfitt, Alexei Sayle and others. That's how you do it peeps - not with 3rd rate stuff like this. OK - apparently my review is not long enough - 10 lines is the minimum… How perverse - normally these days - everything has to fit into a soundbite or 140 characters! Why on earth do people set these silly rules? Maximum 1000 words - minimum 10 lines. Perhaps if writers are under these conditions at the BBC - it might explain why their end- product is so questionable?
