Meet The Richardsons At Christmas review

Curb your cynicism, it's the festive season.

Carol Midgley, The Times, 10th December 2020

Review: Meet The Richardsons

Jon Richardson seems to treat this as a time for re-gifting, or recycling, his old jokes. One about a 'sad-vent calendar', with depressing messages behind the 24 doors, was reused from an old episode of C4's Eight Out Of Ten Cats Does Countdown. He didn't even try to pretend it was new. That's hardly entering into the spirit of things.

Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail, 10th December 2020

Meet The Richardsons At Christmas, Dave, review

Actual Christmas nuts watching might have felt a little twinge of recognition in his grating enthusiasm.

Meet The Richardsons At Christmas, review

This curmudgeonly festive comedy was a downbeat delight.

Michael Hogan, The Telegraph, 9th December 2020
