The first two series, (the first starring Harry Enfield, Martin Clunes, Caroline Quentin and Leslie Ash and the second starring Clunes and Neil Morrissey along with Quentin and Ash), were actually produced by ITV who then cancelled the show. The BBC then took over two years later in 1994 for the remainder of the show's run, retaining the series two cast. See more »

I PRAY BBC America keeps this in reruns
23 May 2001 | by (Evansville, Indiana) – See all my reviews

This show is hilarious. I never found british comedy to be too funny, besides Mr. Bean which I love. I found this show, after we changed cable systems and started to get BBC America. I think a lot of the stuff on the network is great, but this is definitely my favorite show. The two male leads have the best chemistry, and every minute is a laugh. I hope I get a chance to see all the episodes of this one!
