Steve Merchant - the new Andrew Marr
Think Steve might be headed for Radio 4's start the week if not IOT (In Our Time) at a push, move over Andrew Marr, and at a push Mel Bragg
Hmmm .... TWO thumbs down
OK. I totally get British humor, having lived there from birth to age 25, and I enjoy The Office. But this, well, this is pure, unadulterated drivel. Funny is not a word that I would ever associate with this, this, this ... well, I am not even sure what heading it belongs under. But comedy it is not. The only reason I listened through to the end is that I kept on hoping for better, given the amazing reviews here. A total waste of money AND time.
how to know which of the guides to buy
I read the reviews before purchasing this and for the most part, didn't find them helpful. Instead, I ended up basing my decision to buy the guide to philosophy on the podcast preview. I guess the problem is that most of the reviews tend to tell you what you already know-it's funny. But if you're like me and looking to save money, then you want to know which guides are the funniest.
This one isn't worth the purchase. The best part is in the free podcast preview and the rest, in the words of Gervais, is 'dribble'. You're welcome.
