Slightly Offensive
7 April 2003 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

This uses the same format as NEVER MIND THE BUZZCOCKS and THEY THINK IT`S ALL OVER except where as the aforementioned deal respectively ( And with respect to a degree ) with music and sport IT`S ONLY TV deals with television . But the problem lies with a lack of humour . Julian Clary is camp and unfunny , Johnathan Ross is smug and unfunny , while Phil Jupitus is plain unfunny all of which is a drawback considering this is supposed to be a comedy quiz show , though obviously Clary , Ross and Jupitus delude themselves that they are hilarious . And much of the humour and wisecracks are designed to cause offence , believe me Julian Clary`s innuendos about gay sex aren`t the half of it . Am I alone in thinking there`s a lot of stomach churning hypocrisy involving the presenter and two team captains putting the boot into television shows ? If it wasn`t for television no one would have heard of this trio . Hopefully no one will hear from any of the trio for much longer .

There is a sometimes recurring feature I enjoyed involving the panels trying to guess which one of a trio of monsters actually appeared on DOCTOR WHO and more often than not at least one of the contenders is a more interesting monster than the one that appeared on the show . Peter Davison ( The fifth Doctor ) actually failed to pick the right one which was a Foamasi from the 1980 story The Leisure Hive .

But apart from that highlight I have very little good things to say about the show mainly down to the highly irritating and unfunny regulars who appear on it
