This review is from: Horne and Corden [DVD] (DVD)
After the phenomenal success of Gavin & Stacey, James Corden and Mat Horne have been given their own studio stand up / sketch show. Filmed over 6 epiodes and directed by the wonderful Kathy Burke, this show promised so much.. But alas, delivers little. I'm a huge fan of Corden and following teaser trailers for the show I thought this was only going to build upon his success and growing reputation created from Gavin & Stacey. What conspires however is a set of routines filmed live in front of a studio audience and some pre filmed sequences tied together over a 30 minute episode, with the majority not hitting the heights that many will be either expecting or like me, hoping for from the pair.
There are a couple of moments to savour, spiderman and superman in everyday life, the not-so silent farter and the odd live sketch, but if anyone like me who wanted this show to desperately do well will only feel somewhat let down by what has been put in front of them. It appears that the BBC may too have also recognised this as since the programme began airing on BBC2 its time slot has changed from 10pm to midnight suggesting the viewing figures and perhaps word of mouth from its original airing on BBC3 were not good.

Xander the old school chum from hell was funny, too. Not much else though. Such a shame, as Gavin and Stacey is phenomenally good.
