Brassic review

Cartoonish capers give us a break from reality.

Dominic Maxwell, The Times, 8th May 2020

Brassic, series 2 episode 1 review

This madcap comedy caper is endearing but exhausting.

Anita Singh, The Telegraph, 7th May 2020

Brassic series two review

Vinnie and the gang decide to rob a circus, as Joseph Gilgun's hit comedy - part-Shameless, part-Ocean's Eleven - returns for a second run.

Rebecca Nicholson, The Guardian, 7th May 2020
