Editorial Reviews

A double offering of heavy metal madness from The Comic Strip
Featuring:
Adrian Edmondson, Rik Mayall, Nigel Planer, Peter Richardson, Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders.
Bad News tour (1983)
In this Spinal Tap-esque rockumentary, fifth rate heavy metal band Bad News set out on their biggest tour to date. But for band members Vim Fuego, Den Dennis, Colin Grigson and Spider Webb, a day on the road is all about scoring lager, gigs and school girls.
More Bad News (1988)
Five years later after a less than amicable break-up, the band reunites after being offered a record deal and a gig at the prestigious Castle Donnington Festival.
with Appearances by:
Ozzy Osbourne, Joe Elliot & Phil Collen (Def Leppard), Lemmy Kilmster & Phil Philthy Animal Taylor (Motorhead),and Rudy Schenker (Scorpions)

These have to be my favorite episodes from "The Comic Strip Presents". "Bad News" premiered in 1983, "Spinal Tap" didn't come out till 1984. I think that says quite a lot. Don't look for HD quality or lots of extras, this is just the basic two episodes and play and choose an episode options. The Bohemian Rhapsody video is not included, Something I'm a little disappointed in. I love the episodes and I love the DVD. If you just want to have the episodes to watch again, check out the DVD. If you want an unbelievably awesome Blue Ray experience, you might want to wait.

If you don't like British humor and 'eavy metal, move along - nothing to see here.
This disc collects both Comic Strip Bad News "specials" and it is glorious(ly bad).
One of my room-mates turned me on to this back in the 90s with an almost worn-out VHS he had and during the time we lived together it got even more worn-out.
Before Spinal Tap, there was - BAD NEWS. Edmondson, Planer, Mayall, & Richardson lay on the comedic genius extra heavy here.

What a classic this is, I haven't seen it since I was in high school, even funnier than Spinal Tap in my opinion.

With the first Bad News Tour predating Spinal Tap, these were the start of the Rock Mockumentaries aimed spefically at the hard rock/metal fan. No rock cliche goes unpunished here, and its spot-on look at your below average local band's attempt to make it in the music biz (or NOT) provides many laughs. For fans of The Young Ones and French & Saunders especially.
