An underrated comedy
16 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am always surprised that this comedy series so often seems to get overlooked.It is genuinely funny and the chemistry between John Thaw and Reece Dinsdale is excellent.They clearly have a ball playing opposite each other and this gives the show a lot of charm.

While all of the episodes aren't hilarious,there is enough here to highlight the fact that it is underrated and a whole lot funnier than shows like 'The Vicar Of Dibley','The Thin Blue Line' or 'Mr Bean'.I reckon that you should give this series a try.It is worth the effort.

It is so easy nowadays for comedy shows to be course,vulgar and full of foul language.Now I'm not being a prude here but this is a comedy that can genuinely be enjoyed by the whole family and there are not too many comedy's like that around now.
