They seem to have taken a lot of the ideas from the radio show.
There are some new things though, Sally for one, Murray having a day job and alas therefore not being such a constant character, Jemaine being meaner in the TV show than the radio. They were both really likeable in the radio show, but I found it hard to take to TV Jemaine's character.
Mel is of course a mix of their fan experiences around the world and then exaggerated somewhat. In the radio show it was a couple. I prefer the single fan concept more than the couple as that was a real 'ick' part for me in the radio show. Ick ick ick
*Small spoiler alert below* but it is the episode title so its not that shocking
Them getting mugged in part 3 will also be new.
Also the way the TV series is working, they are working the story in a totally different order. Over 12 episodes we will see lots more new stuff. We have to. BBC show was only 6 parts
Don't forget we'll get lots more songs in the TV series
and those lip synched singalongs
set in a video stylee.
No voiceover for me was the biggest loss. I think the TV series would have really been enhanced with a great voiceover like Brydon's. It was legend
and took the radio series from good to great.
Ummm yeah I have too many thoughts on all this
