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
Oh my god!! It never fails to amaze me the complete lack of a sense of humour people who comment on this show have if they hate it! This is one of the best sitcoms of all time i don't care what anyone says! Yes it's vulgar, yes, it's trashy but my god we're in need of good, fantastic acting and hilariously crude jokes with the amount of crap spouted by TV big wigs, and I do apologise America because i love you dearly but almost every American sitcom always has the same sugar-coated, happily ever after endings which is completely ridiculous as that would never happen in life all the time.
What Gimme Gimme Gimme brings to it's audience is a good belly laugh, and a great way to pass the time, Kathy Burke is amazing and i've loved her in everything she has ever done. It's a shame this series has ended but i think James Dreyfuss new what he was doing pulling out before it went stale and now we can all enjoy the series on DVD, long live the memory of Tom & Linda!!!
