Special 1 TV, Episode 1 on BBC 3: Video

The Special One has returned to the airwaves with episode 1 on BBC 3. This one, released on the first day of the World Cup, features Jose alongside Wayne Rooney and Sven-Goran Eriksson as well as the usual cast of call-in experts such as Rafa, Didier Drogba, David Beckham and even Tom Cruise.

It’s not their funniest episode, but there are a couple of chuckle monents here and there.

One thing I noticed, however, is that the episode is approximately one minute shorter than the previous show on Setanta. This may not seem like much, but one minute is a long time on a short TV show like this and doesn’t give creator Mario Rosenstock as much time to develop story lines or gags. Hopefully BBC will give him his minute back.
