I sat in the staff room talking with my colleagues about this programme and it seemed like a love it/hate it experience. For those of us who loved it, it seemed we shared the fact that we'd been forced to watch this programmes with spouses/siblings/friends and that we couldn't stand them! Peter Kay's mocking of the genre then suited well. There were lots of subtle jokes here - from the opening "the lines are open, the result has been fixed" to "that's the best I've heard in twenty years" being told to every person who sang!
Maybe one of the best moments was Geraldine's musical medley - I've been turning Nelson Mandela into Umbrella all week - though there were many other stand out moments: Cat Dealy going "blue" with her language, Paul McCartney singing the Home and Away theme tune, and DrFox talking complete and utter metaphorical rubbish!
It was a really strong one off programme that I'm so glad I saw :)moreless
