There's a ready-made audience for this bumpy slackercom, and a big one too. The YouTube channel of comedy group The Midnight Beast has had 40 million views to date.
For this six-part series, Dru Wakely, Stefan Abingdon and Ashley Horne star as high-rise musicians living from one blagged pizza, and one low-profile gig, to the next. It's a mashup of The Inbetweeners and Flight of the Conchords; the songs, especially I Kicked a Shark in the Face, bring it alive, but the infill could do with some wit.Mark Braxton, Radio Times, 5th July 2012
Think, perhaps, of a rap version of The Monkees meets Flight of the Conchords and you might get an idea of this promising new sitcom featuring unsigned comedy band The Midnight Beast. Stefan Abingdon, Dru Wakely and Ashley Horne made their name with a YouTube cover of Ke$ha's Tik Tok and now have their own show which blends music videos and a storyline of them struggling to make ends meet while living in a high-rise squat in east London. Tonight, they try to scam free pizzas and are kicked out of a club for stealing drinks.Michael Hogan, The Telegraph, 4th July 2012
