TV Review: Camping, Sky Atlantic, Episodes 5 & 6

Don’t be fooled by the jaunty sub-Mumfords music at the start of episode 5. Julia Davis’ comedy-drama comes to a head in all sorts of horrendous ways in these last two instalments.

At some point most of the characters have a meltdown of sorts. There were points when I was not even sure if I was watching a comedy, the story was so bleak. At times this was grotesque in the style of The League of Gentlemen, but in some ways it was far worse because it was so rooted in middle class, middle aged normality.

TV Review: Camping, Sky Atlantic, Eps 3 & 4

It’s interesting the way Sky Atlantic has scheduled Camping. The latest series from the pungent pen of Julia Davis is filmed as six separate episodes but is being shown as two at a time back-to-back over a three-week period. Maybe Sky thought the episodes were so good they couldn’t wait to get them out.
