It is not the show for which Lucas and Walliams will be remembered; it is more amusing than hilarious, and at times not funny at all.

Even if it doesn't hit its mark all the time, I'm guessing it will offer enough left-field surprises to make up for some of the too-straight jokes.

Soars more than it crash lands.

Beneath the lurching mish-mash of brilliant performances, hamfisted stereotypes, great jokes, crass clunkers, inspired catchphrases and overworked mantras, there was a really quite good satire trying to get out.

I, for one, cannot find it funny.

December 28, 2010 Full Review Source: Guardian

Groundbreaking? Maybe, maybe not. But what this certainly isn't is the kind of comedy you can watch on autopilot.
