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. Written by

At one point in episode three, of the first series, Matthew, played by Ben Chaplin, makes a reference to his new neighbor by referring to her as Winona Ryder. Ben would go onto act opposite Winona in the movie Lost Souls (2000). See more »

'Game On' is one of my favorite comedies of all time it's another Brit hit.
A program like 'Game On' is another reason why England is the best when it comes to comedy.
The show has great comic timing, delivered by three/four great actors. The script is written brilliantly with lots of awesome film references, you can tell the makers of this program are big film buffs hence the two posters; Blade Runner (1st season), and Reservoir Dog's (2nd/3rd season). Also the names of each episode are always some outlandish title, e.g. 'Double Hard Bastards & Girly Shirt-Lifting Tosspieces' lol sounds like a Tarantino segment, love it.
My favorite seasons are two & three, with Neil Stuke. I do like the first one a lot with Ben Chaplin but he is no way near as funny or as charismatic as Neil Stuke, Stuke brought comedy genius to the role of Mathew Malone, he made the show as good as it is.
