Popular BBC sketch show that introduces a whole host of memorable characters such as Tim-Nice-But-Dim, Wayne and Waynetta Slob, The Old Gits and teenagers Kevin and Perry. The show spawned a slew of spin-off series and films.
Me and my brother look forward eagerly to this show all week, it's brilliantly funny, zany and completely mad. Some of the sketches are slightly less amusing than others, granted, but they all have this wonderfully crazy feel to them. From it's low rating, I feel like some people just don't get it. I think it helps to watch every episode as there are a great deal of recurring characters, which really add to the fun. Kevin Eldon is brilliant in it, the theme song at the beginning is possibly the best part about the show (especially in episode 4) because it is so Kevin central.
Brother says: It's truly irreverent rather than pretending to be so. It mixes that with a genuine warmth and exuberance down to the admirable talent of the man himself.
