Tourist Trap (new Sally Phillips sitcom)

This is up on BBC iplayer now, has anyone watched it out of interest? I'm planning on doing so tomorrow as after her Taskmaster appearance I'm all a bit in love with her.

If you find you love Sally Phillips a bit too much, have a go at My Favourite Sitcom on Gold. She interviews a bunch of B- and C-list celebs about their favourite sketches and then attempts to recreate them or something. I don't know, I'd smashed my telly by the time they got to that bit of the advert.

In all fairness to Sally, there's something in her eyes which suggests that she's all too aware it's a shit idea but by God, kids are expensive.

This is...by the numbers. Not terrible or anything but absolutely exactly what you'd think a mockumentary style sitcom set in Welsh tourism would be

Was excited for this because it's part of a Welsh comedy season, and it also features Tudur Owen and Elis James. I did enjoy parts but, as has been said, a bit what you'd expect. The scene with the unintentionally rude hashtags felt like it's been done in everything.

But I'm glad seeing Wales and Welsh writers getting to be celebrated and showed off in comedy so FUCK OFF BritishHobo you naysayer.

I quite enjoyed it, bar a few bubble-bursting broad bits.

Finished the last couple of episodes, Mike Bubbins is really great in this isn't he

Really like this. Loved Elaine quoting GLC songs to Eggsy. 'Ten fags, ten fags'!

Lot of recognisable Welsh actors as well. Laughed at the one who plays Beyonce in Stella proudly boasting its success.
