Review
This excellent series debuted in March 2009 and featured Simon Munnery, Kevin Eldon, Peter Serafinowicz & Paul Putner. The programme is executive-produced by Armando Iannucci and script-edited by Chris Morris, marking a rare reformation of their creative double-act.
On Disc Two:
Episode 4: "Global Financial Crisis". There were references to the retailers Woolworths, Zavvi and MFI.
Episode 5: "Comedy". The primary reference was to Franklyn Ajaye but Jack Dee was mentioned and his sitcom Lead Balloon was alluded to.
Episode 6: "Religion". References included The Jesus Lizard, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Jim'll Fix It, Laurel and Hardy, Study after Velázquez's Portrait of Pope Innocent X and Abu Hamza al-Masri. The episode featured a developed version of a routine about Catholicism from Lee's controversial 90s Comedian (2005). Paul Merton makes a self-deprecating cameo appearance. This episode also marked the first television appearance of controversial comedian/magician, Jerry Sadowitz in over 5 years, making a cameo in guise of Jimmy Savile.
