A sitcom about two dreamy roommates in London. Gay unemployed actor Tom Farrell, whose career is going nowhere, and Linda La Hughes, who is about as attractive as a centenary nun, yet has delusions of romantic love. Written by
One of the funniest and most original situation comedies ever to come out of Britain. It's coarse and over-the-top, and in the finest tradition of British saucy postcard humor. Replete with broad characterizations (straight female nymphomaniac living with mincing gay man, competing for the affections of straight and happily married black guy living downstairs), over-the-top situations, double entendres, and delicious one-liners, 'Gimme Gimme Gimme' is the inevitable next step for those who loved 'Are You Being Served', the 'Carry On' films, 'Girls On Top' and 'Absolutely Fabulous'.
Pity that other commitments prevented the writer and leads from pursuing the show beyond three seasons of 6 episodes.
Not for the twee, or Cliff Richard wannabes or those who think that it's shot on film and not on videotape, 'Gimme Gimme Gimme' is a must-have for the collection of any lover of camp or no-holds-barred comedy.
