I saw Back to Earth randomly on Dave the other day (which is about the only way I ever see anything on Dave, but there you go). I thought it was surprisingly good - if not actually funny. Certainly very reminiscent of the last few series in terms of its reused gags, but they had the fundamentals right. If anything it just felt like a TV movie of days gone by - too long with too little material. Personally I reckon the lack of a laughter track didn't help either, but there you go.|
In other news, Dave are repeating all the old BBC series in the buildup to a new series they're doing. For reasons best known to themselves though, they're doing this in reverse order, so they're currently as far as series 8. While it is an anathema to me to look up the listings for Dave, I have done so and discovered that they seem to be showing them from about half ten in the morning every Saturday, so at this rate set your recorders for the 6th of October, when they might be doing series 4.
