BBC One has announced a new sitcom about a group of ghosts, created, written by and starring the original Horrible Histories group of leads, Mathew Baynton, Simon Farnaby, Martha Howe-Douglas, Jim Howick, Laurence Rickard and Ben Willbond.British Comedy Guide, 19th June 2018
A question: what would you do if you had a windfall of £14million? If you're young, and in a new show called Loaded (Channel 4, Monday), you would buy a riverboat full of sandals. Not even the Messiah would have a use for all of those. But if you have £14million in your pocket you'd probably walk on water, too.
A great cast, including Jim Howick, show how miserable you can be with a huge fortune. How reassuring. Funny, a tad surreal, and with lots of internet terms that will both boggle you and make you laugh. A hit.David Stephenson, The Daily Express, 14th May 2017
Loaded was a hoot. The premise of four flatsharing computer whizzes is hardly new, but we are spared comparisons with Silicon Valley or the (increasing) schmaltz of The Big Bang Theory by its being very rude, very British, and relying less on lovable underdogs than the ribald arrogance that comes with essentially unearned computer-app millions. It's written and produced by Fresh Meat's Jon Brown, Jim Howick excels as the (only) grounded worrier Josh, and, crucially, it's both near-credible and high good fun.Euan Ferguson, The Guardian, 14th May 2017
