Re: Spitting Image debuts on BritBox tonight

Just watched it and loved it, of course. It seems a bit watered down compared to the 80ties version though but I still wonder how it will hold up in today´s "woke" and politically correct life.

Only saw the trailer, I thought it was lame.
I worked on a Swiss Spitting Image about 10 years ago, les bouffons de la confédération. Tiny budget unfortunately.
