There was more than enough to keep me smiling. Also it is meant to be a look at the news and the news has been grim for a long time so I suppose they can only work with the material they are given.

Saying that I enjoy it.

I saw Adam Hills live years ago and he was very good.

I've found this series to be too much socio-political ranting, and not enough trying to be funny. It doesn't seem to know what it wants to be as a show any more.

It was a bit of a "sideways look at the news" type thing, but it's almost as if it's trying to keep up with the Jon Stewart/John Oliver "angry man" style of satire and I'm not sure that works for a British audience.

The guests feel like a bit of an unnecessary add-on at times, particularly when it's clear they're only on to plug something or other they have to sell.

Yes it's a bit leftie soppy
But it tries to be funny in an acceptably decent way
Which isn't always that funny but is a good start

I got into this recently as they're a random 3-some, but the dynamic between them really works.

Ed Miliband seemed like rather an odd guest, but I felt sorry for him since that bacon sandwich which shouldn't have been a thing as nobody looks cool eating with their hands, so I was looking forward to what he would talk about.

This is a bit random as not sure what it's really for, but it seems he's forcing a change of image: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/ed-miliband-aha-take-me-10185720
