I recently watched all six episodes of Blue Heaven, and really enjoyed them. The whole thing has a very subtle style, which is very down to earth, but with an eccentric streak running through it that makes everything really fun. Frank Skinner really impressed me, as did his sidekick Conleth Hill. The two worked really well together. Add an excellent supporting cast to the mix and you are spoilt with acting talent. The stories range from good, to very good, and there are many memorable scenes. I laughed, giggled, and really enjoyed the humour. The whole production has a distinct atmosphere and feel. There is something truly brilliant about it all, but sadly.. for whatever reasons, it didn't find success.
Overall.. it's a must-watch. If only a second series had been made.
