Richard's still ahead of the game
29 October 2005 | by max-cadySee all my reviews

Absolutely awful.

Poor Ben Elton has a lot of catching up to do if we wants to be where Richard Curtis is at. And this unfunny sitcom that has no studio audience, has dreadful, cringe-worthy middle class characters is no help. Even the theme tune evokes memories of the Curtis created Vicar of Dibley. Every week this show fails the five-minute test; I doubt you will still be with the show after the first five minutes.

Finally, and this is another shot in the foot, Ardal O'Hanlon was good in Father Ted, but wasted in My Hero, which he should have stopped doing after one series, is not the ideal leading man here. The guy pretending to be Mick Jagger is simply irritating.
