This review is from: Bad Education - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I was hooked on this as soon as I saw the first episode. It's just hilarious. The script is sharp, the cultural references spot-on, and the direction and musical score are the perfect icing on the cake. Watching this, I can see how it was influenced by the comedy greats; 'I'm Alan Partridge', 'The Office' and 'Fawlty Towers'. (In fact I see the character of Alfie Wickers as a baby-Basil Fawlty.) The casting is pure genius. Matthew Horne is, as ever, brilliant. And there are also moments when this comedy shows some 'heart'. Jack Whitehall should feel immensely proud of this superb comedy. It's the best British sitcom in a long, long, time. I'll be pre-ordering the DVD pretty sharpish....
