Everyone is really, really excited!
22 January 2018 | by lol234See all my reviews

Well, first you get the contestants. And they are really, really excited to be there. I mean, they're super excited. And that's hilarious. They also love to explain how they know the answers to kid friendly questions. Do you want to know how someone knows a plot point about The Little Mermaid? Because you're going to find out.

Then there's Fred Savage. And he's really, really excited to meet the guests. I mean, he's super excited. And that's hilarious. And he's bringing the enthusiasm. When someone answers a kid friendly question, Fred's there to make them feel like they just cracked the Enigma machine.

And what can I say about Gervais? He is really, really excited to talk to the kids. I mean he's super excited. And that's hilarious. Now some of you may think that Gervais has made a career on incisive, sardonic humour and that sitting in a room with a bunch of kids trying to force laughs out of their observations would be the sort of lightweight pablum he'd have parodied earlier, but that doesn't matter because everyone is having such a good time!
