Despite an interesting premise, 'Todo es mentira', a joint effort from La Fábrica de la Tele and Minoria Absoluta, doesn't really pack a punch. Minoria's signature caustic humor is nowhere to be found, and instead we get unfunny jokes, absurd debates and visitors from La Fábrica's true flagship show, 'Sálvame', which actually runs opposite this one and is (rightfully, if we look at the ratings) treated as a far bigger deal by Cuatro's parent group Mediaset. In the 'unfunny jokes' department, Itziar Catro's comments about her own overweight are the most glaring case in point. It's perfectly fine to be able to laugh at oneself, but she's abusing the resource. Miguel Lago's output has peaks and valleys, convincing when he pulls off his upper-class snob gimmick, but absolutely lost in the aforementioned debates with Castelo. And host Risto, no matter how hard he tries, simply isn't believable as the vitriolic juror we met at 'Operación Triunfo' anymore, which is good for his other show, 'Chester', but here contributes to most of the show's satire falling flat on its face.
