Not bad, but not great - Rik Mayall Presents: Series review by RH

Spoiler Alert
17/06/2020

I'm a big fan of Rik Mayall - he's made me laugh so much in shows like Blackadder, The Young Ones and Bottom. So I was looking forward to watching Rik Mayall Presents as I'd never seen it before. Unfortunately it was disappointing. Rik's performance in the series is great, but the episodes are generally fairly dull and too long, and the style of direction is very 1990s and now looks pretty outdated.
