A Brilliant Series for a strange child.
11 November 2005 | by (Lancaster, England) – See all my reviews

In 1992 I was 5-6 years old, which one would assume to be far too young to have watched these series. This is not the case. Not only was I allowed to stay up and watch it I religiously taped every single episode.I can even say that it was always shown around 9.00 (occasionaly 9.30) on the BBC and was followed by 'Waiting For God' for one series. I was heartbroken when it finished after the second series.

The plot is hilarious, of course as a child the many of the jokes ("decadant green...sordid black..ooh..pregnant pink?")went straight over my head, even if I did memorise it well enough I can still quote fluently now over a decade later. The actors are excellent, though 'David's character became less likable in the second series this did not detract from the overall charm. Peter Rokeby was undoubtedly superb and the script was witty to the extreme and wonderfully well delivered. The programme covers humour not only in darker situations, in the home, the small community but also contained some wonderfully cynical caricatures of the media industry as well as the random day to day 'luvvies' so prevalent in small society.

"Divorced last year. I got to keep the kid...which is like...a baby goat."-Tarquin (Pete's boss)
