Reception[edit]

Following the first episode, Serena Davies writing for The Telegraph said "what was perhaps surprising about this show was its off-beat charm" and gave the show 4 out of 5 stars.[3] Keith Watson writing for The Metro gave it 3 out of 5 stars adding "any show featuring Bill Bailey in a pink jumpsuit can’t be all bad".[4] Writing for The Mirror, Vikki Stone said "It's like thirty great YouTube clips back to back. It's fresh, original and anarchic".[5]
