Storyline

The comic daily lives of three misfits who share a London flat. Mandy, the beautiful, intelligent blonde who can't seem to keep a job or prevent the wrong men failing in love with her all the time. Matthew who owns the flat but can't step outside yet still manages to live out some bizarre fantasies much to the chagrin of the other occupants. Finally, Martin the red-haired dreamer who can't seem to find the right woman but has been having an on-off relationship with Clare for a long time whilst he searches in vain.

Neil Stuke
23 April 2008 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Having watched the complete series several times, I also have to vote for Neil Stuke - he is absolutely hilarious! The first season starring Ben Chaplin was far too 'clean' and lifeless compared to 2nd and 3rd season. Stuke is so way over the top my stomach just keeps cramping up with laughter. Equally sensational is Sam Janus, in the way she changes her first interpretation of a 'dumb blonde with squeaky voice' into a mature and intelligent young woman struggling with modern-day life as do all of us. The 'ginger tosser' I liked a bit less, because he just doesn't handle the Clare problem efficiently (or in a more entertaining manner). This just made me eager for more and more scenes and gags featuring the 3 of them (brilliant). Can never get enough.

IF YOU LIKE THIS SHOW: also watch: Men Behaving Badly (Neil Morrissey and Caroline Quentin are sensational), Father Ted (out of this world), Coupling, Love Soup.
