Famalam – The DVDfever Review – BBC2 Comedy pilot

Famalam is a new one-off pilot sketch show which – with a cast made up solely from black comedians – instantly picks on a lame trope of ‘reverse racism’, where a black cast of space marines moan about they’re about to enter a spaceship only to all be eaten because they’re black, as if they’re […]
