It may have been witty but it also had its fair bit of bullying on it too
I remember Lemmy tearing into Mark Lamar about his unacceptable bullying of (I think) Kylie Minogue. He wouldn't let Lamarr off and pretty much just stopped short of calling him a wanaka.

Maybe I need to persist with it. David Mitchell was really irritating me in the second one.
He does that. He's still great but even as someone who'd say they like him, he is annoying.

I watched a long ad for that trailer and thought it looked abysmal to be honest. Not sure Greg Davies is the man to carry a TV show, good host and good part character but not the central funny figure for a series.

Looks pure cringe to me from the ads. If the "carrying invisible shopping bags" comment is considered a highlight of the show then I can't say I'll be tuning in. Greg Davies is ok but always seems to be trying that little bit too hard to be random and abstract, and Noel Fielding has always been about as funny as third degree burns IMO.
Noel fielding totally unfunny in my opinion ranking alongside Eddie Izzard and Romesh Ranganathan ( who is on everything on tv for some reason atm - must have friends in high places because cannot be for his comedic abilities surely?) to each his own I suppose as with all things!

I find both Romesh and Noel Fielding to be funny if you embrace the fact they aren't taking themselves very seriously but suggesting that they do. Think that's kinda the point. Although maybe I'm miles away.

I just think Noel Fielding is overrated, childish unoriginal humour and Romesh Ranganathan totally unfunny, quite arrogant and overexposed on tv these days. His side kick with the large teeth equally bad. It is all personal taste of course.
