Spoof video diary. Steve Coogan takes on the roles of downtrodden Paul and the vivacious blonde Pauline Calf, who finally gets herself up the aisle with the man of her dreams. Even a punch-up in the toilet can't spoil her special day.
STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs
Steve Coogan has brilliantly captured the essence of six distinguishable stereotypes and worked them to successful effect.The best episodes are Dearth of a Salesman,Get Calf and The Curator,which are all side-splitting.Handyman for all Seasons and Thursday Night Fever are certainly very good,but the series is let down by the irritating and very unfunny Natural Born Quizzers.Still,in something this good ,there'll invariably be one rotten egg ,and other than that,it's must see stuff.Coogan's a genius.****
