For one moment I thought she'd hit upon the world's greatest lyric but let's hope she gets a hit or two out of her misery. Remember - young gals have feelings too. Emotions aren't just the currency of the jaded. Moving on. The BEEB
managed to finale
another show this week (did I just verbalise
a noun?), HAVE I GOT NEWS FOR YOU?
What two creatures sing the theme tune? A horse and a bee: Neigh - buzz
This run has been excellent and I really must touch myself inappropriately whilst thinking about PAUL MERTON
as he's still, after all these years, nut~crunchingly
funny. Some of the guest hosts haven't been as
good and I was rather keen to see TOM "I Met Him Once" BAKER
and Brian "GORDON'S ALIVE!" Blessed
return - maybe in the Autumn. So now really, there's nothing
on telly. Except...
Chris O' Dowd's been hanging out with the wrong crowd...BBC2
are sticking with their Thursdays Are Funny
schtick and we (and by 'we' I mean approximately 2 million people in the UK) were treated to a double bill of new stuff. Actually, treated
is not the right term. Subjected
would best describe the first hour - two episodes of KROD MANDOON & THE...
You know, I've lost the energy in which, not only, to type the rest of the title or to bing*
it. For a comedy, it wasn't very funny.
There are more laughs on his jacket than in Krod Mandoon.
In fact, entirely larf~free -
so well done to all involved for creating a show so devoid
of originality (granted it was, and I used the word quite wrongly, a 'parody') or creativity. Makes me yearn for NOT GOING OUT
. Yes, there I said it! What's wrong
with studio~based sitcoms?? Not everything can be THE flippin' OFFICE
you know!!! Anyway,
where was I.... reads back...
shame on MATT LUCAS,
he should know better.
Making up the second half of this comedy double bill was the return of THAT MITCHELL & WEBB LOOK
Studio~based sitoms? Is he havin' a laugh?? Meow!
They're not the most outrageously
hilarious double act in the world but they hit more times than they miss. A thinking man's ARMSTRONG & MILLER
if you like. Nice to see them back regardless and the guys were in fine form after a slightly
disappointing second series. I will say that their 'rocket science' gag had more signposts indicating the punchline than the new Banksy
exhibition has bloody obvious 'social' observations. (Hey Cam, what's the deal? First you have a go at Armstrong & Miller and now Banksy?? Who next?
John Barrowman???) But it still made me giggle.
