  1. Milking it for every last drop? Expiry date long past? This isn’t a recent show. This is a one-off Christmas special that was made over a year ago.

  2. they do a handfull of characters and repeat the same jokes every single episode, you see one episode you’ve seen them all, only variation is the location. The expiry date is reached and long past.
