I must say that this was another good performance by the Dead Ringer's team. I liked the digs at Fox News (no doubt they'll moan about the BBC again). Jon Culshaw did a good George Bush out in the UK. The 'ABC set' looked more like their BBC News set.

I agree, it is very good.

Dead Ringers has always been very hit and miss for me, but this episode has a much better hit rate than usual

I'm sure some hillybilly americans will get hold of a copy and get completely the wrong idea about it

I must agree. The TV conversion was often a huge disappointment, but some of the digs at Fox News, and the anti-Kerry propoganda was surprisingly decent.

Comedy without laughs as far as I could tell. It really wasn't that funny - even the audience didn't seem interested. It had its moments though - Fox News needed targeting, and the idea of going for Michael Moore was good, if not the execution.

It probably was the BBC News set! Laughing

Yes, I'm 99% sure it is, I've seen the mock set they use and it looks identical, just filmed at a different angle.
