incredible show
23 October 2003 | by (hanover, massachusetts) – See all my reviews

One of the best storytelling shows on tv. Too bad it wasn't shown enough. Rik Mayall was incredible. Hope they release a dvd. Otherwise this will be a forgotten classic. Bravo only showed it once a week and it was late at night or way early in the morning.
