Even the presence of Christopher Lloyd couldn’t save this mindless, rough-draft turd of a script from being the first truly stupid episode of the series.
No, it’s not sci-fi, and no, it’s not fantasy. And, no, I don’t give a damn. It has been YEARS since a television show has made me laugh so much and so hard. Make sure your remote has fresh batteries; Cunk On Earth had me laughing so long I had to repeatedly rewind, only to laugh so uncontrollably at what I had missed that I had to rewind yet again.
