BBC’s Bros documentary After the Screaming Stops was so absurd viewers didn’t think it was real

The Christmas TV schedule may have been packed with festive treats, but there was one that stood out from the others.

The BBC’s Bros: After the Screaming Stops documentary was the hidden gem of the festive season looking at the 80s pop icons.

The BBC Four doc aired a couple of days before Christmas and followed Bros as they prepared for their London arena reunion show.

It covered their "meteoric" rise to fame and their fall in a one-off special, that said it have "a raw and emotional look into the aftermath of fame and the reconnection between two twins torn apart by their past".

Hard hitting stuff right? Sort of. Fans didn’t know what to make it as it all got a bit absurd.

It even had the line: "It’s because of Stevie Wonder I made a conscious decision not to be superstitious."

Come on!

The Goss bros ended up being something like Patridge meets David Brent, which is fine, but probably not quite what the aim was.

Al Murray called it "the greatest gift" while Danny Baker said: "Everything you’ve seen tweeted about the Bros documentary is true."

Seriously some of the lines.

People weren’t convinced it wasn’t the brainchild of Ricky Gervais.

We’re just left wondering was this a mockumentary or was it all real?

Does it even matter?
