Is 'Benidorm' one of the worst TV series ever?Watch this thread
I really have no idea why this show wasn't axed years ago, it's the same repetitive garbage episode after episode about a bunch of holiday makers sitting around a hotel swimming pool and getting drunk on presumably endless free booze, absorbing lethal doses of UV sunlight, dressed like idiots, with equally moronic hotel staff and hotel management who presumably got their hotel and catering credentials from a packet of half price economy cornflakes that were a few years past the sell by date.
By the way this rather fictitious peculiar hotel is called the 'Solana' and yes it makes Fawlty Towers (an infinitely more enjoyable TV comedy) look like the Savoy by comparison! The very first episode of series 1 fails to get past 3 minutes when some racist bigoted comment is made about German people.
Do hotels like this really exist?? If so I'd sooner spend a week in a North Korean gulag!
A typical episode plot, begins with them getting up then stuffing their faces with brekkie around the hotel swimming pool where they remain for the rest of the day getting drunk on their free booze, before riding down to dinner on their shop mobility scooters to eat in front of some extremely incapable karaoke singers or a low rate vocalist. (repeated next week as episode 2)
Yes I know its comedy but this just isn't funny and as hard as I try, I can not see the humour in it. It doesn't take a lot to make me laugh, and I love comedies like Fawlty Towers, Only fools and horses etc, but Benidorm just doesn't interest me.
