Quotes

Frank: You know, the actor guy! Oh, what is his name? See, the thing is... the thing is... the thing is that when I say his name, you'll go, 'YES! The actor guy, love him, adore him... ' But I can't think of his name. It's on the tip of my tongue. You know who I mean - he's got the hair... the eyes... a bit of a nose... and a mouth and it's all held together with... like a FACE!

User Reviews

Funniest sitcom Australia has ever produced.
5 July 2004 | by (Planet Earth) – See all my reviews

A brilliant duo that brought a freshness to television that makes you think a sitcom has never been done before!

Such inventive plots, characters so well-observed. These two 'adultescent' characters remind me of the worst aspects of my own personality. The dialogue is hilarious but is matched by the most astounding physical comedy I've ever seen (either of these guys are more than a match for Jim Carrey).

I just found a tape of the show I hadn't seen in years - still as funny as hell! Should be recognised as a classic series in the "Fawlty Towers" league. Can't recommend it enough.
