I was just about old enough to remember seeing some of Spitting Image before they wrapped it up, and since then have wanted it back and thought it would be a really healthy thing for the country. New series!

https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2019/sep/28/spitting-image-returns-chaotic-times-trump-putin-zuckerberg

The writers/voice overs for Spitting Image were part of the team that created 2DTV. The politically charged, satirical animated series. In current terms it poked most of it's fun at George W Bush Jnr. Voices came from Jon Culshaw and suchlike.

I don't know how old you are but feel we're a similar age, except I seem to remember watching a lot of Spitting Image "More peas Norma", as well as Hale & Pace and Bottom (amongst others). Maybe my parents were a bit more lax on how much comedy I saw?  Smiley

I was watching it from the eyes of a c10 yr old. It was hilarious. In more current times, I think Bo' Selecta by Leigh Francis picked up the baton that Spitting Image left. Except that was more "celebrity based" than it was political.

Maybe I could point you in the direction of Mark Kermode, responding to criticism that his review of Joker for the Observer was vastly different to the review in the Guardian?

I know how it goes. I just made my own view on it. People can conclude what they like, I just don't agree in this instance with he negative. Like on every subject, people have differing opinions. A good thing.....

I did, years ago but to be honest pretty much forgot the plot etc. Why ask?

No reason really, just some people think this is a brand new series and there are a few things that cross over from one to the other.

Fair enough, mate. I misread the tone of your message then Thumb I'd still give it a solid 7.

No worries.
7 is a good score. I'd rate it much the same to be honest.
