Giggling my way through Rik Mayall's The New Statesman ... his Alan B'Stard is so slimy one expects to see gunk oozing out of the DVD player. Hard to believe the show began twenty years ago ... the only things that date it are some of the clothes and Thatcher as P.M. Be sure to watch for Peter Sallis (the voice of Wallace in the Wallace and Gromit films) as a retired hangman-turned-publican (at The Hangman's Knot, where else?) who wants capital punishment brought back so he can return to his former profession.

Classic B'Stard: "My God, if your I.Q. was any lower you'd need watering, wouldn't you?"

P.S. It seems Mayall is currently touring as a stage version of B'Stard ... lucky lucky Brits!
