People Just Doing Nothing cast 

Review of "People Just Doing Nothing" 2/20/17 by Suzanne
Airs Thursdays 12:30c on Viceland

Here's another show on Viceland (like "Nirvanna The Show The Band") that I tried to watch, but it's just not funny. The guys in this show are British, yet not funny (normally I like British comedies). It's apparently a BBC TV show about these guys who run a pirate radio station. It really wants to be "The Office," but it doesn't work.

This is a mockumentary. I really hate that style where they try to pretend it's real, people act stupid, and everything is deadpan. It's rarely done well. I couldn't watch more than half of this show.


"PEOPLE JUST DO NOTHING" premieres THURSDAY, FEB 2 at 10:30PM and is VICELAND's first acquired series from Fremantle Media International and produced by Roughcut TV. From executive producer Ash Atalla ("The IT Crowd"), the mockumentary series follows a hapless crew of social dropouts running an illegal pirate radio station in West London - 'Kurupt FM.' Currently shooting its fourth season in the UK for the BBC, the show launched to critical acclaim with The Telegraph calling it "Entertaining, and absolutely of its time" while DigitalSpy.UK hailed it as "the best British comedy since 'The In-Betweeners'"
