An Ironic Review
28 September 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

Seeing as this comedy is about men who empty dustbins I`m going to sum up my opinion with the very ironic " This show is a load of rubbish " Like the previous commentator I too have caught this on Granada Plus and I fail to see how anyone found it funny all these years ago . The performances and writing seem to be more suited to a school production than a television show and the most irritating aspect is the word " Pigging " as in...

" Empty those pigging bins "

" Pig off "

Obviously no one could use the F word in gay abandon in those days but " Pigging " seems totally unconvincing , unlike PORRIDGE`s version " Naffing ". Mind you PORRIDGE was well written and well acted so that certainly helps
