TV: M is for...


LAMENTABLE LOONCOM starring the eternally underwhelming ENN REITEL (see THE OPTIMIST, if you dare) as a crim on the run hiding out in – of course! – a mental home where he pretends to be mad. “Colourful” “comedy” “fruitcakes” are his friends. Accusations of tastelessness minor in comparison to accusations of shiteness.

    I don’t know who’s got such a downer on Mog, but they’re spectacularly wrong here.

    Absolute banger of a theme tune, though – So Tell Me Who’s Crazy, by Stu Leathwood. Nice Monty Python-style animated title sequence. Enn Reitel was also good value for money on Spitting Image.
