Sadly forgotten.., 7 January 2004
Author: filmfreak-5 from Denmark

The fact that this brilliant show was so quickly forgotten, and so underestimated, is a dirty rotten shame!

Just like Bottom and The Young Ones this show is brilliant and offers you laugh after laugh. It's quite hard to say what went wrong, but only six episodes were produced and as far as I know only shown once on BBC and a few other channels. Just like Bottom and Young Ones can be purchased on DVD/VHS in stores worldwide, this show is only available on amazon.co.uk via 2nd hand.....it could look like someone's simply trying to wipe the show's existance off the face of the earth, which, to my hand, should be a punishable crime.

Watch this show if you can find it, it's brilliant!!!!
