Very funny, one of the best, but alarmingly realistic
23 August 2002 | by (Manchester, England) – See all my reviews

So many things about this programme were hilarious. It was very clever, as it highlighted the sad experiences of lonely and unsuccessful people in a darkly comic way. I suppose you really had to be English, and probably a Northener to fully understand why it was so funny and so true. You may also have had to had experience of people who lead similar lives to the characters, for example; gossiping about neighbours and casually talking, to get the jokes. Very touching, and I was greatly disappointed when I found out it was finishing, because it was one of the few programmes which was true and funny at the same time. Who wants perfect families, who are so-called 'typical', on the T.V? I think the people who critisized it were either fearing its truth, or too ignorant to to try and understand and relate to the humour. Caroline Aherne, Craig Cash and Henry Normal are geniuses, and I think everything they have written is funny.
