This was great show. and had huge ratings in the UK. It even got an extra original season made in the end, because the US version left things unfinished.
The cast were fantastic. As were the re-written scripts for the UK. Blackman and the other cast blended well together. Always made me laugh how the Sets really are look a likes for the US version. In the UK this was a prime time comedy which is very rare for the ITV Networks who showed it. ITV during the 90's were not big fans of Prime Time Comedy, this show broke the mold.
I would say to anyone watch this show you will like it.
