Storyline

A sitcom about two dreamy roommates in London. Gay unemployed actor Tom Farrell has a vague ambition to become the British Tom Cruise, but his career is going nowhere, and his love life isn't too hot either. Linda La Hughes is about as attractive as a centenary nun, yet has delusions of romantic love and actually aims at Tom, by far the most attractive man in her life, even if he is only into men. Yet as life keeps knocking them down, they are sort of condemned often to depend on each-other for want of better. Written by KGF Vissers

Vulger, Trashy and Crude, You'll Love It
8 December 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best english television series ever to have been released. It's basically about Linda (Kathy Burke) and Tom (James Drefus) who are roomates. Linda is backwards, sex mad, disgusting and unemployed. Tom is an out of work actor who's gay, self obsessed and he like to think of himself as middle class. Each week is a different story about what happens to them. But this really is hillarious any one will like it apart from snotty prudes. Watch It.
