As a female duo, Watson and Oliver will naturally invite comparisons with French and Saunders. It's unfair to compare it to such a prolific sketch show and W&O has many, many funny moments. It strikes me as a little odd when a sketch show this new, made by relative newcomers, is slated for not being comparable to the greatest British female comedy double act of all time. It's true that some of their ideas are supposedly "recycled", however, this is the case with most comedians and sketch shows and very often the old ideas are the best. As well as that, if you don't find any of their facial expressions amusing on some level, then you can be considered officially without a soul.
