A Great Comedy Overlooked, 13 August 2004
Author: ben_crampton from England

This Is A truly great comedy that provides laughs for the viewer from start to finish. The characters Rich and Eddie Catflap are the forerunners for the characters Ritchie and Eddie in Bottom. I feel it was a shame that this great work did not enjoy more success and a second series, although on the other hand if it did enjoy more success then Bottom might not ever being made as the similarities between the two comedies are not hard to find. Although there is only the one series and is not the most recognizable comedy it is still a cracking comedy and worth a watch. If you have trouble finding it visit the playback universal website or try somewhere like HMV it won't be cheap but worth the money.
