I watched this tonight on channel 4 and can say that I thought 90% of it was complete rubbish.
I dont know who the American woman he has got helping him is but she is just not cut out for it at all.
Also there are only so many times that the dogs fighting sketch is funny - its wearing rather thin now!
Personally I thought that series one and two were fab - series three and the Christmas specials were pretty oridnary but this latest incarnation is just complete rubbish.
Am I the only person who thinks that he should just hang up his mobile phone and go do something else?
If anyone has the series one DVD the pre Trigger Happy bonus bit where they did all the stuff for the 1997 general election was hilarious - probably some of the best material they have produced to date!
i have to say that trigger happy usa was bloody awefull!
I hope that doesn't happen to Bo Selecta...
Notice how Ali G in the USA was so crap? I think it's something across the pond that's the problem...
I love Trigger Happy and Dom Joly but yes, it was crap but you know why it was crap? Ecological differences, because we see that girl as a cheerleader and we aren't used to seeing cheerleaders it's strange, but to the americans it's normal. It's purely because the American's have a) a different sense of humour and b) we've seen it all before and they haven't etc etc etc
I still think Dom Joly's "TAXI TAXI TAXI" bit was rather funny....the other two were crap though and if they tried the burglar with the swag thing, the americans would probably take it so seriously that they would phone the "cops"
Some of the shows where funny whilst others were boring. I found the episode where he dressed up as a snail then proceeded towards a crossing, and crawled across the street like a snail, hahaha, that was funny.
I like the "Svedish" guy, I have to say I did laugh at the one on the American one, it's so politically incorrect,
"Hello, I am from Sveden, I vas vondering, I do not mean to stereotype you,a man wis a beard but do you know vere I may purchase a pistol?"
i saw like 5 minutes of it last night and it was great. not as good as the british series but still...i changed channel when he started snogging the baby (which was a doll wrapped up, ppl were like wtf, ha ha!)
