    While light on laugh-out-loud moments, this clever half-hour earns the gold in the category of "wry and bemused."

    The Olympian spirit is all about relentless rigor, steely self-discipline and doing the impossible. Twenty Twelve celebrates sloth, inattention and surrender. There should be a gold medal for that too.

    BBC America delivers a satirical treat in the uncannily topical Twenty Twelve.

    It's more cheekily amusing than hilarious and full of comedy-of-the-uncomfortable moments.

    Twenty Twelve is ultimately too safe and predictable to be funny enough for the time spent watching it.

    A conceptually smart but only moderately funny comedy.

    We've just seen this stuff too many times. Merely changing script specifics to Olympic references doesn't make it fresh.
