Top stuff!
25 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a sitcom I fondly remember from my teenage years, which I haven't seen for ages. Apparently Series 1 is released on DVD this month, and I'm itching to get a copy of it. I've no idea if it will still look any good, but it was full of great characters and wit, and it will be good to see it again.

Brenda and Malcolm's rocky relationship caught my imagination, mainly because I identified with Malcolm due to my geeky hobbies. :) Emma Wray was brash and loud but ultimately very likable, and Liza Tarbuck was great as Pamela. The whole thing was about relationships, and was positive, witty and ultimately charming without being overly twee or soppy.

One of those things I'm very sentimental about.
