Thanks to new Freeview channel 'Drama' this 90's sitcom can be seen by a whole new audience and with over 9 series worth of episodes to show it is a pretty safe way for them to fill their schedules.
I can only compare this show to another penned by Marks and Gran (and later farmed out to other writers) 'Goodnight Sweetheart' in the sense that while the leads give good performances they are often let down by dull plots and poor writing when it is not Marks and Gran in control. At times the jokes are slow coming that you can think of the punch lines before they are spoken and like many a sitcom before it 'Birds' should've ended long before it did.
Though saying that, after a successful stage run it looks like the show is returning to ITV in 2014 so perhaps the birds are going to fly again. Hopefully with a few more laughs.
