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.

How can you not adore this?????
10 October 2002 | by (Antwerp, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Being a real lover of good comedy series like Blackadder, Fawlty Towers, a.s.o. I must say that none of those has ever made me laugh as much as this one did/does.

First of all let me say that I have never seen the first series (with Ben Chaplin) so I can't judge if this is better or worse. But what I do know is that if you can't laugh with the humour on 'Game On' you should really wonder if you have any sense of humour at all...

Neil "Double-hard Bastard" Stuke (Matt Malone) and Matthew "Ginger tosser" Cottle (Martin Henson) couldn't have been better cast for their parts. They are the absolute stars of the show. Samantha Janus is a little disappointing, compared to them, but good enough. She doesn't ruin it, but it is obvious why she doesn't get bigger and better roles...

To be brief: the stories are original (homosexuality, marriage, friendship), the dialogues are hilarious, the acting is good,... and in the end you get a GREAT comedy, believe me.

I give it a 9 out of 10.

PS: If you disagree with my opinion feel free to let me know...
