Brought back for four new shows, which at least one news source reports will just be rewritten versions of old shows. When was the last time Mulville or McGrath wrote anything, I wonder? Still, I was a big fan of the original, so this should be worth a listen, at least.

Is this McGrath trying to come back from being rapey?

There was that text about a mattress a couple of years ago.

Couldn't resist it.

I didn't think anyone from this was still alive, but apart from Howard Lew Lewis they all are.

Christ every time I see latter-day Rory McGrath I put the wine bottle back in the fridge.

It looks like Neil Pearson is impersonating Nick Mason in that old picture

I was a big fan of the tv show but this isn't something I can get too excited about if they're really just retreads of old episodes.

Interested to see that Barnaby Eaton-Jones is behind this - so think it will be worthwhile.

I didn't know that Mulville and McGrath were friendly again. Didn't they have a colossal falling out, or did I misread that?

Jimmy Mulville is one of those people who looks completely different after getting older, you know, like Jimmy Greaves. I wonder if this happens to all celebrities called Jimmy? What's Jimmy Carr going to look like in 30 years' time? Anyway, top Lisa JAMC lookalike Neil Pearson has exactly the opposite syndrome.

Have watched the whole thing 1 time and it felt limp, and a little bit "Look Mum and Dad, we have our own tv show now" am-dram, but not without some charming elements.

I used to get Jimmy Mulville and Glenn Tilbrook from Squeeze mixed up.

Is this the same as ITV2's Plebs? Togas are the sort of thing that people believe are funny but actually are not ever funny.

Mulville and Denise O'Donoghue sacked McGrath from Hat Trick in the early 90s due to his drinking. That must have cost McGrath a few quid, although he did well out of appearing in They Think it's All Over for Talkback.
