4.0 out of 5 stars It's back! Vic and Bob fans rejoice! 4 Jan 2010
By R. Wood TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
When at the peak of their greatness, Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer unveiled their biggest weapon. After stand-up (Big Night Out) and sketch shows (The Smell Of and Bang-Bang), Vic and Bob's next output of their surreal humour was the celebrity quiz, Shooting Stars.

Debuting in the mid-nineties, Shooting Stars proved to be Vic and Bob's greatest hit, allowing all manner of terrific guests to appear and be caught right in the middle of their brilliant nonsense. Questions with the barmiest answers, the clips, and things like the `Dove From Above', "The Wonderful Car," and `Donald Cox the Sweaty Fox' induced such hilarities week-after-week. And of course, it breathed new life into the careers of Team Captains Ulrika Johnson, Mark Lamarr, Will Self, later team-regular Johnny Vegas and made a star out of Little Britain's own Matt Lucas as George Dawes, the baby with the scores.

The success of the one-night comeback special from Christmas 2008 gave rise to the 2009 series. And all six episodes have been released onto DVD for the first time ever. Vic and Bob are once again joined by Team B captain Ulrika and Matt Lucas reprising his role as George Dawes. Returning from the `one-night-only' special as Team A captain is the magnificent Jack Dee and making his debut for the new series is Team A regular, the previously unheard-of Angelos Epithemiou, a local burger-van owner.

So, how does the 2009 series compare to the glory days (1995 - 2002) of Shooting Stars? Well, it IS fair to say that the latest incarnation isn't on a par with the older series. There are times throughout when Vic and Bob try too hard to make their old magic work, sometimes relying on vulgarity or recycling stuff they've done before to help carry the episodes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but very funny 30 Sep 2009
By agkwsm
OK, I'll admit that this latest series of "Shooting Stars" isn't as good as the previous series have been, there's been less moments of madness this time, but it is still the funniest show that's been on TV this year.

I'll admit that there are flaws - I don't think the show is partticularly well edited - but the jokes are funny, particularly the one where Vic keeps asking Bob to tell the same joke again and again and George's songs are a particular highlight.

At the moment, most comedy is based on stereotypes and crude material but "Shooting Stars" is just pure silliness, a random assortment of unrelated gags which are funny just because they are pointless, because of that it is leaps and bounds above much of the other comedies around at the moment like "Horne and Corden"

5.0 out of 5 stars Shooting stars 15 Jan 2011
You either like it or hate it. Been watching this show since it began, you never know what's going on, yet you still find yourself rolling around hysterically in laughter. Brilliant.

If you showed this to America, they'd frown upon it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent and innovative comedy 20 Dec 2009
Don't underestimate or patronise Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer - their comedy is multilayered, intelligent and innovative and it is worth watching this over and over again. Each watching will engender a different reaction - amazing stuff.
