Does Not Age Well
1 April 2020 | by barbar-25-755702See all my reviews

Seemed good at the time but having watched it again recently it does not age well especially with the way the world is now, the way Rory McGrath and Jonathan Ross behaved with the female guests would today be easily constituded as assault and sexual harrassment and would have most definatley resulted in lawsuits. Also the constant long running jokes about peoples weight and self image would not be tolerated today.
