Inside No 9 (Series 6) Episode 1
The Referee's a W***ker
Black Comedy 28mins
Creators: Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith
Stars: Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith, David Morrissey
It takes place entirely in the match officials’ slightly claustrophobic and smelly changing room. It’s the final, pre-retirement match for referee Martin and a make-or-break game for the teams in the Championship. United, hoping for a win to gain promotion to the lucrative Premier League play Rovers, who have to win to avoid a financially ruinous relegation. The stakes could not be higher, as they say. The stoic, punctilious, and Northern ref Martin seems the perfect fit for the match, but will his fellow officials and the players make it a final match to remember?
Being well received generally.
The Black comedy is back with a more run of the mill episode, not very dark at all, but still a great watch.
Funny as is the norm from the creators and as always some good guest actor appearances although the gay kiss that features appeared to me anyway be very uncomfortable for the actors to act out ;)
A lot packed in less than 30 mins and although I sort of sussed out the climax still a very good funny entertaining watch. Can't wait for the next 5 episodes of the series.
MGN Rating 8/10
