Think it will be good?
I remember hearing in 2004 just after Nathan Barley that he was planning a satirical swipe towards Afghan terrorists..
I'm hoping this clip is a bit of a red-herring, it seems too prosaic and scripted compared to the acerbic and surreal world of Brass Eye and The Day Today.. Almost like a daft sketch show.
I hope its going to upset the Daily Mail in a repeat of how Brass Eye did in 2001, but I also hope the programme is a lot darker, more intelligent and more twisted than this clip implies
The clip is hilarious and definitely has shades of classic Morris. It's very Peter O'Hanrahanrahan-esque. And "the programme"? Isn't Four Lions a feature film?
I haven't looked it up
it'll be appalling. i hope i'm wrong and it's more sophisticated than that.
there are quite a few reviews for it on the net. It's out May 7th in UK.
but I doubt we'll get the highs of brasseye in it.
