Lousy doesn't even come close
31 May 2010 | by markfskinnerSee all my reviews

Apart from one mildly entertaining sketch, unsurprisingly with Rhys Darby, (shame that it was redeemed only by Plasticine), I want that hour of my life back. I almost enjoyed the sketch with the sheep (once again, Plasticine, perhaps I'm biased!) but it was a little predictable.

I gave it a shot, but never again.

Individually this bunch of entertainers are just that, but they form a whole that is less than the sum of their parts. I feel that the question of whether or not they'd gel as a group has been answered, and gel or no gel, they're not good en masse.

I also found the peculiar sketches with the green alien to be less entertainment, and more akin to a crappy children's afternoon show, with similar production values. Did they run out of money, or material?
