Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer do good turns as the new Marty and Jeff. They perform consistently and the rapport between them is definitely beneficial to the character of the series.
The writing is good and the stories are well conceived and executed. They're also quite gory under the veneer of humour and cynicism but you don't notice straight away.
The humour can sometimes dip a little too low for my taste but I know you can't please everyone all the time and even I sometimes laugh at a fart gag. So don't be put off.
The best approach to this series would be take each episode on its own merits. If you don't like one, try another.moreless
