Something must be wrong with me as I laughed out loud?,
This review is from: The Wright Way [DVD] (DVD)
I cannot understand why critics didn't laugh. The best jokes are the ones when you are a drawn into a journey where you can see the next step coming and connect with the rest of the audience and the writer. The actors do their job brilliantly and David Haig is just perfect for the role. I think other countries will appreciate the humour and then perhaps the critics will get the joke that it's on them and Ben Elton's idea was to stick two fingers up at them. I very rarely laugh out loud watching TV - perhaps once an episode in Black Adder which is my maximum - but it was two or three times with the Wright Way. Please do a Christmas pantomine tour - where can I get the scripts - the episode with the bucket sized lethal coffee cup had me in stitches. This is Fresh Meat on steroids. Thank you Ben Elton for making me go to sleep in a happy mood. Please please show some chutzpah and get the BBC to commission another series.

I totally agree with you--although my ratio of laughs were far higher. Just looking and listening to David Haigh conversationally, makes me smile. When I saw him on the 'The One Show' last year, promoting this show, I was so pleased to see him, having not heard a thing about him since 'TheThin Blue Line' a decade before. I later learned that he'd been on stage mostly during that period. P G Croft UK.
