It's not been bad but it has been really, really lazy. Both the BBC and Reeves & Mortimer should offer a bit more than the comedy equivalent of another Status Quo album where everyone knows what they're getting, the fans are just about satiated but everyone involved knows full well they could be involved in something much, much better if they got off their laurels for five minutes.
then you realise that they've still got Nevermind The Buzzcocks & must think... surely this isn't the reason they've cancelled this show?
thought it was a return to form and the sketches were ace ...'Cold Land' etc blah
but 7 and 8 have been pretty good like.
It's had it's time in the sun.
Caught a French comedy sketch show on BBC 2 few weeks ago called 'Women!'. Fucking hell. You know you're in trouble when you turn to the French for your comedy output. Why don't they just play repeats of Big Train?.
fucking hell is right. I watched it in the same way you watch a gruesome film, you just can't tear your eyes away from the horror of it all.
like it always was. Given the dearth of decent comedy, and the general public's bizarre delusion everything was better in 1998, it does seem like an odd decision.
but i do keep expecting them to mention fluffy ruffs
It's up there with their best output. I love it.
been on the slide since. georgie dawes >>>>>>> angelos. however, the most recent series were still considerably more entertaining than 99% of the bbc's current 'comedy' output.
That was when Shooting Stars was great
Angelos is miles better than George Dawes (especially once Matt Lucas became popular for Little Britain and started believing his own hype), but my only gripe was that they embarked too much on amateur dramatic silliness sketches. I know the quiz show theme was always loose, but it tended to become the Vic, Bob, Jack and Ulrika show, with 4 mute guests.
