Sean Bean.

Sean Bean

Julia Davis' pitiless comedy concludes. Sociopathic Emma (Davis) and fantastically pliant Sally (Catherine Shepherd, who heroically grounds the whole endeavour) are now married and, tonight, they meet the real-life, actual Sean Bean. Then an attack of food poisoning takes an unexpected turn. Few comedies are as unflinching.

A Spaced for generation Snapchat, in which a group of friends attempt to find themselves by drinking "Yeovil martinis" and going to Comic-Con. With half the cast hailing from Devon, the accents are as on-point as its handle on mid-20s lethargy. In the last of the series, Morpheus is told by his spirit guide Sean Bean (yes, really) that it's finally time to lose his V-plates, so him and the gang pop off to a sex party where he bumps into an old teacher. Nightmare.

Grace Rahman, The Guardian, 23rd August 2016

Wasted, a new comedy about amiable West Country losers who dedicate themselves with some diligence to getting out of their gourds at every opportunity, had some very nice touches, but relied almost exclusively for its humour on the scatological and I mean health-warning scatological; this was gamey meat indeed. Somehow it succeeded, by ratcheting up the nasties to the point where it's as easy to give a belly laugh as a sigh of relief. But subtle, nuanced it ain't, if you exclude the frankly bizarre presence of Sean Bean as an ancient mentor who appears in visions as a kind of Ned Stark/Boromir cross, but mainly as Sean Bean playing the actor Sean Bean. How did they ever get him to commit? I'm so glad they did. He shows remarkable comic wisdom and who'd have guessed?

Wasted, review

Wasted was by no means perfect - a scattergun approach meant some gags fell flat and the surreal set pieces occasionally smacked of studenty self-indulgence - but it had a riotous energy and a cheekily irreverent approach to its headline-stealing cameo. Cool Beans.

Michael Hogan, The Telegraph, 26th July 2016

With its trippy camera work, surreal gags and a slew of cultural references, this riotous new six-part comedy about west-country slackers is highly indebted to Simon Pegg, Jessica Stevenson and Edgar Wright's Spaced. In the first episode of tonight's double bill, head shop owners Morpheus and Sarah, tattoo artist Alison and failed DJ Kent search for a stash of ecstasy from the 90s. Meanwhile, the second episode sees "spirit guide" Sean Bean - in his Ned Stark garb - help out the gang after a messy night in Bath.

Wasted: crude, stoner TV comedy with a heart

Daft and gross with the odd dab of sweetness, there's also something enjoyably nostalgic in Wasted's depiction of aimless, pleasure-seeking youth. Add Sean Bean gruffly enjoying a stick of candyfloss to that mix, and you can't really go far wrong.
