Painfully bad.
5 November 2017 | by mr_mega_driveSee all my reviews

Terrible impressions, unfunny script and all in all yet another sad example of how low BBC,indeed British comedy has fallen since the 90's.

The BBC seems to commission programmes not because of how funny they are but to meet it's desperate need to seem inclusive.

Doesn't matter if people aren't funny or talented they must have gender diverse or ethnic backgrounds.

The fact they are re-making porridge sums it all up. Rather than repeating a classic let's rehash it. Badly.

The only comedy worth watching on the BBC now is Dads Army....nearly fifty years old.

Desperation.

UK TV Gold here I come.
