Have a hankering for some impression-tastic, improvised comedy with a side of banter and cracking cuisine? Well, you’re in luck!
The Trip To Greece, Tuesday 3 March, 10pm, Sky One/HD (CH 110/109). Also available for 30 days in Catch Up > Channels > Sky One
What began in the north of England ten years ago is set to end in Greece in 2020, as Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon’s culinary adventure across Europe concludes with The Trip To Greece, the fourth (and allegedly final) entry in their side-splittingly brilliant travel series/sitcom mashup.
Millions of impressions, a smattering of culinary criticism, no-holds-barred analyses of each other’s careers and millions more impressions have made The Trip and its subsequent “sequels” an absolute joy to watch.
And now, having sampled culinary delights from Cumbria to Capri and almost everywhere in between, the pair, at long last, touch down in Greece. Unsurprisingly, plenty of stunning food and equally stunning scenery await them as they get down to tearing into their food – and each other.
Directed by the ever-eclectic and seemingly tireless director Michael Winterbottom (who also “wrote” 2017’s The Trip To Spain), the series remains an oddly energetic yet simultaneously calming experience as Coogan and Brydon drink their weight in wine alongside fellow restaurant-goers who, somehow, resist jumping up from their tables to accost the pair as they impersonate anyone that’s ever appeared on television or in film.
Which, now that we mention it, got us thinking… As they explore the jaw-dropping sights and flavours of Greece, we took a deep dive into the country’s long, illustrious history on screen, and have assembled a flavoursome graphic showcasing the many films and TV series that have been made on its sunny, cloudless shores.
