Bob Mortimer and Vic Reeves slide into the roles of Jeff Randall and Marty Hopkirk with the ease of a hot Fry and Laurie into a PG Wodehouse made entirely of butter. Or something.
Not to give too much away, but Marty (Vic) dies horribly in the first episode, and the remainder of the series is Jeff (Bob) coming to terms with life without Marty, life with Marty's ghost, and life with Marty's ghost's ex-fiance-to-be. And they have madcap primetime off beat detective style adventures too.
A fabulous range of guest stars in this, including Charles Dance, Charlie Higson, Martin Clunes, Charlie Higson, The League of Gentlemen and many more...
Bonus material includes bloopers and a "making of" features, better than nothing.
The worst features are the dubbing, it's out of sync all over the show. Also there's no scene selection.
Effortless and entertaining viewing for everyone.
