Toilet Humour For The Masses,
By A Customer
This review is from: Gogs: Volume 1/Volume 2/Gogwana [DVD] (DVD)
The Gogs- "What?!?!?" I hear you say?
put simply, whilst other controversial programmes such as South park and long running, critically acclaimed Beavis & Butthead have stolen the limelight for this type of genre, it was the gogs that first got me interested in television of the "not-so-serious" kind. For those who have never heard of the Gogs, you wouldn't be alone- the (in my opinion) under-rated plasticene 10 minute show was aired a couple of years ago prime time on BBC2- there may have been repeats, i'm not sure but the originals went largely un noticed.
In truth, the Wallace and Gromit style presentation of the characters in The Gogs, put lots of people off, dismissing it as a childrens programme. Which couldn't be further from the point.
The small caveman family have been reproduced in plasticene along with their locations, it seems like a weird equation, but Cavemen + Plasticene + Toilet Humour = extremely good fun.
Like South Park? My bets is you would love this.
Why only 4 stars? well there will always be people who don't like this type of material, and also the programmes themselves were all too short. The DVD itself in my opinion is an essential piece of comedy, worthy of anyones money, but i don't suppose i speak for everyone. It does exactly what it says on the box- Every episode.... Missed it on TV? give it a try now, you will not be disappointed.
