I wasn't impressed with it last weekend. I felt comparing Marcella Detroit's Queen Of The Night aria on Popstar To Operastar to a chimp's screeching was cruel - and the same joke was previously cracked by Steve Wright when he felt it would be highly hilarious to put chimp noises all the way through Prince's 'Kiss' circa 1984.

The Knitted Factor sequence goes on too long and the bit with the beans fell flat.

Still some cracking moments in it especially taking pee out of the major soaps! Laughing

Yes, it is a funny show sometimes and I'll agree the knitted sketch did go on a little too long, but overall it's good entertainment imo.
In fact I'd say it's a little unique in today's TV world... we could use some more shows like this.

I enjoyed the scenes with Louis Spence dancing this week! Also the Queen Vic bust puppet singing Lady Gaga's 'Bad Romance'!

No, half an hour is more than enough, and I think it has reached, and passed, its peak. I get a sense of deja vue every time I see it.

I think it has definitely lost it's way, shame really as it used to be a must see, now it's more a case of if we see it then fine if we miss it so what.

That K factor thing was just too much, we tend to turn it off when that bit comes on as we don't really like the signing bit at the end either, oh well.
