Thank you Craig and Martin for paying the troll and allowing us to pass over the bridge into the mystical land of Timeghost. Look there's a clown blowing up cultural taboo shaped balloons ready for the pricking. Over there a rainbow colored factory churning out cuddly capitalist products. Behold the mission creep bounding through the open fields. Brilliant!
Odd, quirky, very funny, very British
Strange mix of real cultural criticism mixed with bizarre ramblings on the hosts' sex lives. A bit more of the former and less of the latter would be better, but still, very amusing show.
