Series 2 - Episode 1

Review

The cheap but always cheerful parody of daytime arbitration shows returns for a second run. For me, the format works best when the claimant and defendant are verbally dexterous enough to play along and Romesh doesn’t have to resort to easy pot shots.

Thankfully, there are some who are able to handle themselves in this opening double bill, including Harvey and Romeo from garage collective So Solid Crew, who are at odds over whether the 21 Seconds lyric should really have been “Harvey Done” rather than “Romeo Done”. And the judge’s bench is turned on Romesh when his wife and mum bring a domestic grievance to the courtroom.

Summary

The comic holds court over real-life disputes, featuring an extra who is costing his friend acting work. Plus, rappers Harvey and Romeo argue over lyrics copyrights.
