Hilarious, totally-irreverent, near-slanderous political quiz show, based mainly on news stories from the last week or so, that leaves no party, personality or action unscathed in pursuit ... See full summary »
Boyles early stuff was excellent. Really funny. Sadly this stuff is awful. The jokes are too political and contrived, and the program format doesn't work. It's basically a bunch of lefties sat around talking a bit of politics (no-one disagrees) and trying to out-talk the others. Like mock the week, but worse. Saw the first episode of the second series last night - Sarah Pascoe's self loathing monalogue for being white (and how bad and embarrassed she is of that!?) was toe-curlingly cringeworthy. (Doesn't she realise she's embarrassing herself?) They had David Baddeil on to discuss the anti-semitism in the Labour Party, but he wasn't allowed to say much for some so-called gags the others tried to put in and talk over the guy. If you're more left wing than Jeremy Corbyn you'll probably find it funny. Personally I find it a sad cul-de-sac that Boyle has driven his career down and I'd streer clear.
