Some laugh out loud moments, but not a patch on The Day Today or Brass Eye……..
on 28 January 2017
Ultimately I was disappointed by this series. I think Chris Morris is an amazing talent, and while he skewers London's media scene well here, there simply isn't enough material for six half hour episodes. Morris is brilliant at creating characters and writing funny dialogue for them, but not quite so good at navigating them through a decent plot. There are some hilarious details and you will laugh out loud if you're a Chris Morris fan, but it's a shame to see talented actors like Claire Keelan and Ben Whishaw not being given enough to do, and then up and coming talents when the show was made, like Julia Davis, Matthew Horne, Benedict Cumberbatch, etc, getting tiny cameos that add very little to proceedings. Don't buy this DVD, watch the show on the Channel 4 website instead, because it's not worth spending the money on, unfortunately.
