What's on the schtick? Just the same old Vic

It's not hard to work out why Vic Reeves's execrable 'comedy' panel show Does the Team Think... was given a second series (Radio 2, Saturdays, 1pm). Someone influential in the BBC labours under the false impression that Reeves appeals to that vital listening demographic, the Youth.

You know just what you're getting with Does the Team Think..., Radio 2's quiz game - Bob Mortimer and Ulrika Jonsson are panellists, and it's all held together by host Vic Reeves's surreal whimsy, so it's basically Shooting Stars remade for the airwaves. Not that this means it's unsuccessful - its half-hour of panellists fielding unlikely questions from the studio audience passes in congenial fashion, with the fact that its participants are old friends making things very cosy (in a good way). Jonsson comes in for lots of flak from her pals - after she confessed to a horror of reading instruction manuals, Reeves chipped in: "Couldn't you get a man round to do it? And then marry him?", but she was more than equal to the task of sending herself up. Asked if she uses slaves in her house, she suggested, "My husbands?"
