The loosely-structured episodes give the flexibility for a lot of Family Guy-style cut-away humour, and the programme is perhaps one of the most successful British attempts at the American animation style of comedy, despite being live action.
The cast is stuffed with big comedy names: Martin Freeman, Kim Wall, David Walliams, Geoff McGivern, Ronnie Ancona, Germiane Greer, and loads of others. There's even a welcome appearance by Michael Caine, straight out of Stella Street, in the episode Caine.
Generally, I would rate this show between 4 and 4.5, as Tony Roche's writing is often superb, and all of the performances are spot on. The show loses half a mark for occasionally being a little slow, with the British 28 minutes feeling longwinded against the American 22.
What really upsets me is that, despite my comments on the fansite I wrote years ago, Second Sight have chosen to issue this in the as-broadcast format. What's the matter with that? I hear you ask. Well, World of Pub was filmed on a set and did not have a live studio audience. However, a laughter track was recorded in the BBC Radio Theatre and then superimposed. On the early episodes, the laughter is overly prominent, and drowns out some of the dialogue. On later episodes, the laugh track is faded right down and gives the impression the show isn't that funny (which is wrong). Why could they not have made the effort to go back to the original masters and strip off the BBC's unnecessary laughter?Read more ›
i loved the 'dodgy' kevin eldon putting in another superb performance.
Best moment for me - Kevin eldon doing a piss take of the notting
hill 'passing seasons' bit with the aid of a hose pipe.
I am going to buy the dvd now
This series should have been shown daily in the lead up to the Olympics in London.
Let me warn potential buyers; you will not enjoy this if you dont find Eastenders pathetic.
This is poor. Obvious scripts - just generally weak and the characters don't really work. Considering the number of quality participants it's a bit of a disaster!

With a strong cast I was very disappointed with the end result.The writing (by just one person) felt under-powered which let down the performances.Published on 5 Oct. 2013 by Paul Kirsten
I find it surprising that some of the actors agreed to take part having read the script. The worst thing i have seen in a long time.Published on 10 July 2013 by Burt Control

Top surreal humour. Very silly and has several laugh out loud moments, a fantastic way to whittle away a Autumnal Saturday afternoon. Read morePublished on 17 Jan. 2008 by Mr. C. J. Iredale
