I know this hasn't been released yet, and I can't wait to get my hands on it, but having seen this on the BBC - it is the best thing Walliams and co have ever done.

Don't get me wrong, I love little britain but I always felt they tipped the balance a little too much with some of the daring humour.

Come fly with me is more controlled than their other work, and the characters are really inspired - I laughed through every episode and this show deserves another season a least. Hilarious stuff.

It's got humour, it's got imagination, it's got creativity, it's got a vast range of brilliant characters, it's a good watch, it's worth buying, but it's got no coffee!

Although there were parts of Little Britain I found funny, most of the characters left me cold - so I used to wait until Ting Tong and her creepy husband or Bubbles and rivals came on - but in Come Fly With Me it's hilarity all the way as there's so much scope for laughs and amusing twists that they could make the series almost as endless as the very documentaries about airports that they caricature. My favourite characters are Omar Baba - oily owner of Flylo airlines with his office full of exotic treaures like a Pharoah's tomb, and the customs officer, who is practically a militant British nationalist. All the characters are funny and because it reflects reality and the general horrors of air travel, with characters like check-in girls Keely and Melody, everyone can get the point. I'm hoping that at some stage they'll introduce and brutally caricature some security search and x-ray machine staff (in the next series perhaps?) who put one through frequent misery confiscating nail scissors and quarter-full 150gm bottles of expensive lotions - and making you risk Athlete's Foot/Verrukas walking on a dirty floor, as well as turfing your personal items (some deeply personal!) onto the table before a large audience...

Welcome to the world of FlyLo, "Britain's eighth favourite low-cost airline".

............................

It pretty much boils down to this: you either like COME FLY WITH ME or you don't. There's no inbetween, chiefly because the show is so much more than the sum of its parts and, as a result, opinions diverge - just as they did with LITTLE BRITAIN only a few short years ago.

Filmed, mockumentary-style, at an actual airport, Come Fly With Me has the benefit of being populated with real (background) personnel, facilities and, of course, passengers. The attention to detail is quite breathtaking and this is where the brilliance of the concept really comes alive; MATT LUCAS and DAVID WALLIAMS have created a scenario with endless possibility. Better still, most of the characters have their own little story arcs - nothing too heavy, but it does mean that each episode is best watched in order and, as a result, we care more for what happens to them.

REALLY?
Yes, really.

BUT IT'S ALL SO POLITICALLY INCORRECT. HOW CAN YOU, FOR EXAMPLE, SIT THROUGH ALL THAT RACIAL STEREOTYPING?
Simple: it's very funny and, crucially, no-one's exempt - they're all under the spotlight. Grotesque behaviour is common to all these people. But after seeing Walliams and Lucas in action one thing is abundantly clear: they each possess that rare gift of a twinkle in the eye - the non-knowing, non self-indulgent sort - which means that even if the material isn't quite pitch perfect (mostly it is, however) it's still possible to watch the broad goings on with a smile on your face.

I was so excited Christmas Day waiting for this series to start and I have to say that I was abit disappointed at first, but this didnt last long.

My partner and I were expecting a Little Britain spin off and after seeing the first episode it was obvious that Matt and David wanted to leave the old characters behind, which was a little sad. However, once we put Little Britain to the back of our minds and stopped comparing the two then we really started to enjoy this new series.

The check in girls, "Melody & Keeley" are hilarious and if you have seen that Easyjet documentary aired a few years back then you will know who they are taking the mickey out of! Another new character that was an instant hit for us was "Moses Beacon" who is the Passenger Liason Officer for one of the airlines. The way an elderly passenger manipulated him was so funny and is something that we have all seen when travelling! My personal favourites though are the husband and wife pilots "Simon & Jackie Trent" who are the typical married couple in charge of a plane which in real life would be terrifying as they always argue!

To truly appreciate this series you do need to forget Little Britain. Whilst the format maybe similar, the characters are totally different and some may argue are less controversial than their Little Britain predecesors.

I have certainly reserved my seat on the sofa to watch more of this series and I hope others will too! 5 stars!
