Waiting for that moment
on 1 March 2006
I haven't seen all of this yet, so I must add that my cautious 3 stars is for what I've seen so far. The yeti episode was good but something that I can't quite put my finger on is missing. It is as surreal as ever but the songs are so far less effective as are the plots. Oddly, removing the hapless pair from the Zooniverse sems to have not given the series the opportunities it could have. Perhaps they are constricted by the music links, which seem odd anyway as Vince was so anti Howard's efforts in that direction anyway. It is still very enjoyable in a surreal sense but the desert music episode whilst interesting, raised no laughs for me.
I hope it gets better and that there is a series 3 that raises the bar, as so far nothing comes remotely near the Hitcher or Spirit of Jazz episodes form series 1. Not even reintroducing the Evil Man Witch worked except for the 'malt loaf? Yeah I'll have a slice' Moment.
