4 episodes and I'm still waiting to laugh
27 October 2012 | by simon3818See all my reviews

If this is a comedy and the comedy of the future GOD HELP US!!

I watched this as i like Greg Davies in stand up, Mock the Week and Inbetweeners and gave this a go. 4 episodes in and I'm still waiting for something to be funny. Cuckoo is someone i would happily chuck from a 4 storey building and then disown my daughter for wasting her gap year a, in the USA and b, marrying this idiot and bringing him back to the UK let alone home.

Comedies nowadays are making the actual comedy hard to find with this straight lace genre they are producing. Sod that and go back to writing proper situations and gags for the actors to do and the audience to laugh at.

If it gets a second series - well there is no hope for anyone.
