In this episode of the "greatest TV show on earth", the ape set on fire in the show's first episode — when Randy Campbell's stunt went "horribly wrong" — has escaped, and the hairy one is after vengeance. Meanwhile the police show no sympathy for presenter Danny Parker and daredevil Campbell, for the way the show has portrayed them. And against all odds, Spanners Watson's rocket car 'The Spirit of Russell Crowe' might actually work ... but the ape and the police are closing in.
Yes, Chris Stapp and Matt Health are as mad as cut snakes but have created something unique. Their show is so stupid, so disgusting and so puerile that it's good. I love it for the all same reasons I loved The Young Ones when it first showed its ugly head back in 1984.– Greg Dixon, NZ Herald, New Zealand Herald, Oct 19 2001
