Even if it doesn't hit its mark all the time, I'm guessing it will offer enough left-field surprises to make up for some of the too-straight jokes.

Groundbreaking? Maybe, maybe not. But what this certainly isn't is the kind of comedy you can watch on autopilot.

Dec 20, 2010 | Full Review…

I, for one, cannot find it funny.

Dec 28, 2010 | Full Review…

Beneath the lurching mish-mash of brilliant performances, hamfisted stereotypes, great jokes, crass clunkers, inspired catchphrases and overworked mantras, there was a really quite good satire trying to get out.

Jan 27, 2011 | Full Review…

It is not the show for which Lucas and Walliams will be remembered; it is more amusing than hilarious, and at times not funny at all.

Jun 18, 2011 | Full Review…

Soars more than it crash lands.

    Come fly with me is an absolute masterpiece! The characters are hilarious but I would only recommend this to British people as others may not understand the jokes in them

    Witty and well made. I was entertained and left looking for the second season.
