Spitting Image

Postby Sandydragon » Mon Oct 05, 2020 2:01 pm

Has anyone else seen this yet - the new series that is?

I caught up with it this morning. Bit of a mixed bag in many ways, some genuine laugh out loud moments, but also some sketches which were more crude than funny.

Priti Patel as a dominatrix was amusing and the portrayal of Cummings also.

The Trump sketches were a bit flat - perhaps reality is just too weird for parody?

Only watched the first episode and thought it was a mixed bag too.

Thought the Priti Patel dominatrix was Davina McCall at first then it made more sense when the penny dropped! :lol:

Don't see the point of Trump being parodied in this way...if anything it kinda softens the reality of him considering the shit he says and does.

I wonder if the original series from the 80s have aged well?

I find Cummings a bit naff, tbh. Patel is good, the musical numbers have been good (especially Super Kiwi Socialistic), but some have just been fall flat...

I think it is hard to parody this stuff as it's just so insane already.
