I think I'd be enjoying it much, much more if it wasn't there.
When they made the original, David Nobbs put a load of jokes in the first-draft and then was told to take the out again.
Might have been good advice this time too.
Even the bits that are working are quite subtle jokes that seem to be met with undeserved raucuous hilarity.
I so wanted it to be good but I'm struggling to even convince myself its mediocre.
Was the original any better, I think it was a bit before my time so I've never watched it...
so it's a bit slow-moving and dated.
But the ideas are brilliant and it has some really funny moments in it.
The frustrating thing is they've changed fuckloads and it still feels 30 years out of date...
In fairness the original gets good from the third episode onwards so there's still hope. But not much.
As I really like the idea of it and hope it might still have some excellent moments in future episodes.
I'm just a bit underwhelmed so far.
wasn't half as well-acted (to be fair, compared to one of the greatest comic actors of all time, no-one could pull it off) and it seemed really forced alot of the time. plus that fucking laugh track. awful.
