Just a couple of quotes I've picked up from the internet concerning the new Friday evening ITV sitcom, Teenage Kicks.
Phil McIntyre, executive producer, said: "Ade Edmondson is one of the UK's most loved and talented comedians. This is a long overdue return to Young Ones madness. I am delighted to be working with Adrian and ITV on this five-star comedy mayhem."
Adrian* Edmondson, star and co-writer said: “I think it’s misleading to suggest this show is a return to Young Ones madness. This is much more of a family sitcom. It’s aimed at anyone who’s been a parent or a child. Which, of course, is everyone…"
We saw ten minutes of this on Friday as we'd been reliably informed by the free papers that it was diabolically bad.
It was worse than that. It was a kind of My Family for the "punk" generation.
Actually, scrap that. Adrian might take it as a compliment.
* He's not "Ade" to me.
