A forgotten gem, 15 June 2008
Author: Sander Kiesel from Netherlands

Although we only saw the first few seasons of this very funny series here in the Netherlands, I'm sure the rest was as nice to watch as well. After all those years I vividly remember those crazy situations caused by another desperate attempt by Robert Gillespie to stretch the deadline for his cartoon. The one with the answering machine is just great. I really do not understand why we saw this series only once, while other comedies almost are burned in in my TV screen. When I see the ratings here, I'm not the only one who loves this comedy. Why isn't there a complete DVD box available? Subtitled please! The same goes for 'Never the Twain' by the way.
