Rainbow episode review: Misc

Rainbow episode review: Misc

Right, this episode has no plot, and no real theme apart from ‘no one likes Bungle and he smells and is annoying’. Let’s crack on anyway.

Great excitement this morning – the postman’s been, and he’s brought some party invitations! The only problem is that Bungle hasn’t been invited.

1

I fail to see why that’s a problem.

“How am I going to tell Bungle he hasn’t been invited?”

Well Geoffrey, may I offer the following suggestions?

– Take out a full page advert in the Times

– Yell it into his face through a megaphone

– Get it printed onto a t-shirt. Wear the t-shirt to the party.

Until Geoffrey’s decided, we’re not to tell Bungle that no one likes him and he smells. Continue reading “Rainbow episode review: Misc”

Rainbow episode review: The Crying Game

Rainbow episode review: The Crying Game

This episode is all about crying if someone laughs at you or calls you a dickhead. As you know, it is never OK for anyone to ever laugh or take the piss out of anything.

Let’s begin with Geoffrey’s new jumper.

1

If you laugh at Geoffrey’s shit jumper you are a bigot. So don’t do that.

“Jane’s given me this sweater! Aren’t I lucky to get a present like this!”

Implying that A) That was originally Jane’s, and B) Geoffrey has never used the word ‘lucky’ in a sentence before. Continue reading “Rainbow episode review: The Crying Game”

Rainbow episode review: Keep Britain Tidy

Rainbow episode review: Keep Britain Tidy

Hello. I thought it would be fun to write a Rainbow review at 1 in the morning when I’m a bit hammered on gin. Let’s see if it is fun.

This episode is called ‘Keeping Tidy’. I assume it’s about the Rainbow gang not wanting to live among each other’s piss and shit, rather than keeping your pubes trimmed. Although Bungle, so you never know.

We begin with a moving panoramic shot (I originally typed it as ‘panoramic shit’), in which the director (probably Freddy), wanted to convey a sense of ennui and fin de siècle, by having Zippy’s crap strewn about the place.

1

I think the theme is ‘man’s inhumanity to man’.

Turns out Zippy is actually a tortured artist, and not just some scrote who leaves his crap and underpants everywhere.

Fun story: I love the mister, so I wash his pants. If they really loved Zippy like they claimed to, they’d worship him while picking up his discarded manifesta and bric a brac.

Please do remember that I have had many gin. Continue reading “Rainbow episode review: Keep Britain Tidy”

Rainbow episode review: No one’s got talent

Rainbow episode review: No one’s got talent

Ever wondered what would happen if Bungle, George and Zippy formed a shit band and made loads of noise all day, and Geoffrey just let them get away with it instead of selling them for medical experiments like he should?

This, as usual, is the fault of Rod Jane and Freddy. We begin with a lovely music video, from Rod Jane and Freddy’s ‘We’re proper rock stars, honestly, we don’t only sing about Old Mother Hubbard’ phase. Didn’t last long.

1

Rod, as usual, is the best one. Look how best he is.

2

He’s going to have the groupies hanging off his willy tonight. Continue reading “Rainbow episode review: No one’s got talent”

Rainbow episode review: extinction rebellion

Rainbow episode review: extinction rebellion

You know that group that goes round shouting that the world’s going to end in 6 minutes if you don’t stop farting? I think they got the idea from this episode, only instead of writing letters like the Rainbow gang, they decided to shout at broccoli instead.

Let’s begin. The gang are having a lovely afternoon out at their local… nature.

1

Geoffrey, Zippy and George are enjoying themselves. I’m sure Bungle is too, it’s just that he can’t do the expression. Continue reading “Rainbow episode review: extinction rebellion”

Rainbow episode review: Keep your hands to yourself

Rainbow episode review: Keep your hands to yourself

This episode is about touching things, feeling things up, and generally molesting things. I don’t know what it’s called, but it’s probably not called ‘Molesting Things’.

The gang have a cat. This is never explained, and is never mentioned again. This happens sometimes, like when Geoffrey married Bungle and they had a baby.

Geoffrey looks happy to have a cat. Bungle is wondering how he can eat the cat without Geoffrey noticing.

1

The cat’s like “I don’t want to alarm you, but there’s a man in a bear suit over there, and this is not standard. Call the police, I’ll try to act natural.” Continue reading “Rainbow episode review: Keep your hands to yourself”

Rainbow episode review: While you were sleeping

Rainbow episode review: While you were sleeping

You know what’s overrated? Getting out of bed. Yet the propaganda merchants at Rainbow will have you believe that something other than disappointment awaits you. This is clearly a lie.

To be fair to them, they do immediately present the only reason to get out of bed – Bungle is in the bed with you.

1

I’d rather get up than lie there in Bungle’s piss and shit.

Meanwhile, Geoffrey is preparing to face the horrors of the day. Continue reading “Rainbow episode review: While you were sleeping”

Rainbow episode review: George’s bum football

Rainbow episode review: George’s bum football

I’m mostly reviewing this episode because I’ve thought of the world’s best joke, to be inserted into one of the scenes. I’ll let you know when we get to the world’s best joke so you won’t miss it, don’t worry.

Let’s begin. George is attempting to sing ‘Old McDonald Had A Farm’. However, he is faced with two obstacles:

1. Zippy keeps doing the wrong animal noises like a shitlord

2. George is stupid.

The combination of these two factors leads to George losing his shit with Zippy and calling him “silly”, which is the Rainbow universe equivalent of calling him a blithering cunt.

Rainbow episode review: Three divs in a boat

Rainbow episode review: Three divs in a boat

You know how sometimes Geoffrey gets sick of everyone’s shit and fucks off, leaving Bungle in charge? This is one of those times.

Geoffrey’s gone on a narrowboat holiday with Rod, Jane and Freddy, probably in Norfuck. Great job Geoffrey – they definitely won’t do anything like burn the house down or fall for a PPI scam.

Might I remind you that last time you went out and left Bungle in charge, he dressed up as Superman and this was his version of ‘being in charge’.

super bungle Continue reading “Rainbow episode review: Three divs in a boat”

Rainbow episode review: Hambungle

Rainbow episode review: Hambungle

Let me start by saying that I am a big fan of food, it’s my favourite. So this episode is right up my overweight street.

The title of this episode is “S14Ep16”, which isn’t very good as far as titles go. Its other title is probably ‘Fast Food’; this is just a hunch I got after seeing the episode, which is about fast food.

Can you tell I’m wazzed off my tits on codeine?

Anyway, let’s begin. Zippy and George are setting the table for lunch.

1

“There’s no point setting the table,” says George. “We don’t know what we’re having for lunch.”

Yes but I’d say ‘some kind of food’, therefore plates is quite a good idea George. You twat. Plates are only going to be wrong if you’re having soup for lunch, or just taking bites out of Bungle. Continue reading “Rainbow episode review: Hambungle”
