Ruined by Rob
7 April 2019 | by arab-61505See all my reviews

Most shows up until the current series are pretty good. Jimmy Carr and Sean Lock in particular. However, it has been utterly ruined with the intoduction of Rob Beckett as a captain. Now about as funny as pulling teeth, giant shiny teeth at that. No wonder the viewing figures are through the floor. Won't last long now I wouldn't think unless they get shot of Beckett and replace him with someone or something much more funny, like a halloween mask on a broom or perhaps even a door handle.
