I can't believe it's comedy
Firstly I'll confess to being one of those strange people who don't think that Gavin and Stacey is the most wonderful sitcom in history, but as much as I could do, I tried out Horne and Corden with as open a mind as possible.
I need not of bothered, I can sum it up by saying throughout the shows I've seen, my mouth has literally dropped open in amazement, at just how unfunny and lame this show is.
The 'studio' segments are dismal only serving to show up James Corden as a deeply irritating 'man of the moment' and sadly once into the sketch parts, it doesn't improve. Numerous 'ha ha look at Corden's belly jokes' are bad enough but the 'gay northern reporter' is comedy reaching a new low.
I'm all for offensive comedy personally, but to work it really has to be funny, nothing I saw in this debacle reached that level.
