Power Monkeys Episode Four ~ Channel Four

Post-vote episode and Priya  (Archie Panjabi) from the Brexit bus has offered Michael Gove a blow job! Or more accurately, Spencer (Kevin McNally) has managed to get hold of her unlocked phone, and what with him still being drunk (on cider, probably!) there is nothing but mischief ensuing.

In the other camp, Oliver (Jack Dee) ironically, has bet on Brexit’s triumph and won (in sterling!). Ruby (Liz Kingsman) is clueless as ever and hasn’t even voted!

The episode was mostly dominated by the Brexit bus, unsurprisingly, with Priya looking forward to becoming a government minister and Spencer’s outlandish insinuations about those who have voted to remain. The team aboard the bus have become a tight comedy foursome and they’ve collectively grown on me over the course of the series so far.

The Tories are preparing for Priya’s return, which is not looking likely to be welcomed and I have enjoyed the continual recurrence of the bitterness felt by Sara (Claire Skinner) in relation to the one night stand with Tony.

Trump’s jet has landed in Scotland, bewildered Brett (Robert Wilfort) is in his own bubble as usual, this time he has been spotted flamenco dancing by Trump. He’s also had a row with the printer and is blaming the Chinese for their workmanship. The partnership between Wilfort and Bullmore has fast become a partnership to be reckoned with. The Trump jet remains my firm favourite, overall.

Two episodes left to go and I am won over, this viewer will be sorry to wave goodbye to the monkeys, even though my initial reaction wasn’t as bananas as I had anticipated.
