Only watched the first ten minutes or so, so far, and I mostly enjoyed it. The Office Flirt one was great, and I liked the audition sketch, and the Zombie one, too.
It's happening again, isn't it Matthew? You are deliberately liking badly made comedy just to wind me up.
The audition sketch was painfully predictable and overly long - if you are going to do an audition sketch, then give it a new twist - such as a one legged Tarzan or a timid young actress who says orange juice like a middle aged Jamaican.
And that was my problem with the whole show, I'd felt like I'd seen all of these characters / sketches before - such as the middle class street poet and the squeamish cops. Even the French fly trainer felt like something that Noel Fielding might have discarded in a moment of rare sobriety.
As for the main comedians, they really didn't bring anything to the performances either, except for the mini-cab controllers, where I saw a small spark of characterisation - even if it was heavily reminiscent of the snooker commentators from Mitchell & Webb.
If the first episode was the strongest of the lot, I won't be catching anymore of this insipid garbage. But just to finish on a positive: they did have a nice collection of attractive young actresses scattered throughout the show.

Well, that's my argument destroyed then.
