BSG Review:

Based on week 1 we thought this new sitcom was a disorganised mess however having seen other episodes now we toned down our criticism We still don't think it is great though - its smutty humour isn't funny for sure. If you were a fan of "Bo' Selecta!" you'll probably love this - if you're not stay well clear.


This sitcom spawned from sketch show "Bo' Selecta!", specifically the 45 minute special entitled "A Bear's Christmas Tail". The bear also featured in a 2005 "Bo' Selecta!" special too.
