It appears that I am also one of the few that ever remember this great series!? I just wish I could find it on DVD. Scene/s that I remember and grin about wherever I am are Ade trying to buy a sandwich in America and him being run over on the drive of his house and crawling to the door :) Saunders is also superb in the roles she plays, seeming to really be at one with the characters and manages to crush Ade so smoothly every few minutes as his craziate bonkers mum.... (another series quote ;) ) This is one of those shows I saw once and wished i'd found re-run, gutted I missed the Gold repeats :( All in all it was fantastic, but then I'm biased as I sometimes resemble Ade and quote him and his characters ad nauseum ;)
