When this first started it seemed bright and witty but soon went down hill. Nick 'sitcom flop' Hancock hasn't changed his fashion sense since 1987 or his jokes for that matter. Rory McGrath has 3 jokes and 2 of those are double entendres, he has made the golfer having trouble with an iron pun 3 or 4 times. "They think it's all over" I for one wish it was.
