Excellent
10 December 1999 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

One of the best British sit-coms that the BBC have produced in the last twenty years. Martin Clunes and Neil Morrissey are perfectly cast as Gary and Tony, as are, Caroline Quentin and Leslie Ash as their long suffering girlfriends. I don't think British audiences took well to the U.S. version of the show that came out in 1996, because the UK version had been around four years prior to this, and we had taken to the characters. But it is the same with any sit-com that is re-made from the UK Version and vice-versa. The BBC make a habit of re-running this show, and I never get tired of watching it.
