I really enjoyed the shows. The humour reminds me of Derek & Clive (Peter Cook & Dudley Moore). I guess this means you either love or hate the programmes but I'm certainly in the love category! The shows are not PC and they do use the shock value of saying obscure or vulgar things to guests in the same way as "The Bear" does in Bo Selecta to good effect. Some guests get the humour some don't but all the guests come out better for taking part in the show.
There is a lot of swearing in the show but it fits the programme. Porridge used 'Naff Off' as it's swear word as you can't swear on prime time TV and I expect prisoners are likely to swear in general conversation. Bronx Bunny can use the swear words you would expect the characters to use as it is on late night TV. The show is much more than Zig and Zag's with swearing but it won't be to all tastes.
Teddy T comes over as a dirty old man and occasionally has fantasies with dancing girls in the show. There are short pieces which were meant to be educational and are a spoof of Sesame Street. The short pieces are funny and break the main show up well.
