Not the funniest show on TV today
10 December 2017 | by olivergould-92545See all my reviews

The first series I watched was Series 5 with Bob Mortimer and Sally Phillips, the comedic talent and penchant for absurdism made series 5 wonderful, then I saw some of the other series and they are just alright, not bad, not great, the lesson Bob Mortimer and Sally Phillips, but Mortimer in particular make everything much much better. ya know what I mean!
