1995 was a good year.
11 June 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Looking back at the schedule for TV over Christmas 1995, it was a good year for comedy, such a shame comedy seems to be so difficult at the present.

It's heart warming, and funny, it makes the everyday bizarre and bonkers, the skinhead carol singers were excellent, such a nice touch.

I liked the appearance of Ben Elton, the jokes about Habib's underwear were funny, but the highlight was the awkward conversation between Goody and Inspector Fowler.

It isn't vintage, but it's very funny.
