Good, but not as funny as series one,
By A Customer
This review is from: Crank Yankers: Season 2 V.1 [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This show will be a huge hit when ITV4 get round to showing it over here. I first saw it on Comedy Central whilst in NYC.
Whilst Series One DVD was fresh and very funny, Series 2 is really just the same old.
Whilst Spoonie, Niles and Hadassah retain some of their previous form, you really just want to KILL SPECIAL ED.
A bit like with Ali G, it seems like you can only carry on endlessly repeating a formula. Some of the "victims" on the phone obviously realise they are being set-up and just lamely go along with it. A scene featuring Jeff Goldblum as a sleazy college professor is just not funny at all. You feel the joke is on him, when the young female student cracks funnier gags than he does in response.
Buy Series One. Avoid Series Two!!!!
