In my opinion one of the greatest sitcoms of all time
I was only in my teens when this originally aired on Channel 4, so knew nothing about Robert Lindsays previous comedy exploits, or David Threfalls standing as a very well respected actor, but what I do know is that for 30 mins once a week, I was watching one of the funniest things I have ever seen in my life, and the 7 days in between seemed an absolute bore.
Like th other commenter on here, I can't understand why more people aren't aware of this diamond amongst the sitcom rough, everyone I've told to see this who has seen this loves it, and can't believe they didn't know about it either.
Like the great Seinfeld, this series has fantastic premises, great dialog, superb acting, and takes twists and turns you don't expect, that are so bizarre, but are hilariously funny it's insane.
The sad thing is anyone reading this is probably also a fan, so knows these things already, but if you haven't seen it yet, trust me, you'll be watching the episodes over and over again for life once you've seen it.
