Girls on Top

IN THE Kensington sky. Alterno-comedy quartet – DAWN FRENCH as veggie anarchist, JENNIFER SAUNDERS as moody depressive, TRACEY ULLMAN as ditzy actress and RUBY WAX as Ruby Wax – share flat rented from elderly downstairs neighbour JOAN GREENWOOD. Usual suspects – Coltrane, Sessions, Laurie, Enfield, Lederer – call round for cups of sugar. Ullman’s character killed off after series one. Nobody notices.

    The episode with Steven Woodcock and Vas Blackwood as breakdancers was good.

    “They put my nipples in clamps!”

    Took me until embarrassingly recently to get the double entendre in the title.

    The Young Ones was the show you WANTED to watch. Girls on Top was the ‘like it or lump it’ compromise the less cool kids reached with their testy, huffy parents who didn’t understand all this alternative comedy malarkey.
