The Darkness take as their starting point the 1970s incarnation of AC/DC, when Bon Scott was screeching at the helm; they dress it up with Sladeish leopardskin, and... well, that's it. Their lack of subtlety, sophistication or sense has got up noses, but who would you rather watch: the real AC/DC, still out there doing the same-old same-old, or these entertaining young bucks? It's not as if they'll be impinging on our consciousness for longer than a few seasons, anyway; this sort of spoofery has inbuilt obsolescence.
