Worth going to see or not?
david copperfield was a bit of a let down.
not really been hearing good things about it but it is the guys from Peep Show.
It could have been funnier but it wasn't a total let down.
the whole 80's music dry ice leggy hostess mime act elements but surely the joy is in not being able to work out the tricks. Crap magicians are really depressing, like crap impressionists. I am sad I ever saw those Masked Magician programmes (also scariest man ever).
he shows how to make an elephant disappear (something to do with mirrors).
slated it, said it was just like a 30mins concept stretched to fill a film
Mitchell and Webb= not funny
Yep. Also, the series of Peep Show that just finished wasn't very funny. Outside the flat too much.
less subtle and more grotesque but better than series 3 I reckon
I didnt think there was enough simmering hatred between the two of them. I liked it when Mark was lower down in his depressing job and they were just stuck together in the flat. Mark's character doesn't suit being successful.
I'm not as keen on the slapstick stuff, I like the arkward situations more than 'Oh no! My presentation needs to be written!'
and there is only so far they can go with the characters. I hope they end it but I suspect a few more seasons will get put out
They're bound to continue doing them for a while yet, which is a shame as it'll spoil the series as a whole.
Their comedy thing on BBC2 is so shit, they're clearly having their 15 minutes and going flat out to cram as much in as possible. Its annoying seeing comedians who have been funny being unfunny.
Numberwang is such as shameless rip-off of Adam & Joe's Quizzlestick its disgusting.
especially about the Numberwang thing. I think Adam Buxton wrote a blog to similar effect, although he didn't particularly care.
They are certainly no Lee and Herring / Adam and Joe / Morecambe and Wise / Cannon and Ball, that's for sure.
