Mockumentary
25 March 2010 | by wrbillsSee all my reviews

This is great TV made by a team who either have an excellent grasp of borderline humour or are just desperate for attention. Either way I would recommend it even if, like me, you don't like dancing.

At least I hope I'm right...

The show focuses on a well known dance institue called Pinepple and the cameras are aimed at the staff. We don't see much dancing and what we do see is expertly setupm, however this show does produce some of the funniest stuff since Spinal Tap visited the farm.

What I really enjoy is trying to guess whether this is genuine TV or Tap/Ricky Gervais/Summer Heights High style humour. The staff are larger than life but at the same time seem realistic enough to be genuine. However, on the flip side the situations are diabolically stupid and set piece music clips are absolutely genius. Is it real??? I would say that they are real but in that they are clever enough to develop a new genre of reality TV whilst at the same time not distancing themselves from what the job and work environment really is. The last episode I watched had the four men in the shower dancing with the assistant manager in his pants at the end of the line. No one would rightly do that unless they are nuts or seeking the mockumentary effect. Plus the blond guy in the band did a tribute to the spinal tap scene when he got lost backstage, it was too obvious a gesture to be actually true.

In short, I WANT to believe it is an ironic twist (particularly with Burke doing the Voice over) on the reality TV genre, done in such a clever fashion that I wonder why BBC 3 don't have it. If it isn't then enjoy it for its ability to humiliate its stars in ways only they can imagine.
