Humorously bringing to life the real and unscripted views of the British public through animation, the issues closest to the hearts of our finned, furry and feathered friends are revealed.
Everybody's a star in this Oscar-winning series. Each 'voice' is brought to life with aptly animated creatures such as Gary and Nigel the slugs, Sid and Nancy the Shed Rats and Dexter the Alley Cat.
As did the previous reviewer, I found this mostly boring.
The 'pace' (if that term reasonably applies) was at times painfully slow, and humour often mysteriously lacking.
In balance, there were a few places where the interview combined with the claymation was genuinely funny. My mother loved it and my American brother-in-law found it hilarious. My husband (a 3D animator) was quite impressed with the whole motion artform. I, on the other hand, found it somewhat trying to sit through.
My overall grading might have been lower, but in fairness I have observed that there are those who really enjoyed watching this.
Quite simply, this is probably far more appealing to Social Psychologists, British Ex-Patriots, and people who have nothing better to do.
Overall, I was quite bored with it. I found it funny in places, but primarily more of a technical/animation success, but an entertainment flop.
