Fantastic
23 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of BBC comedy and I really think this is one of the best-although not particularly popular or acclaimed. Alexander Armstrong is hilarious and the story lines and scripts are excellent. The humour is both 'clean' and subtle but the underlying tensions and attractions between characters give this show more depth than many situation comedies. The characters work well together and are extreme versions of people we all know. I think this is as good as Simon Nye's Men Behaving Badly ( and believe me that that is high praise indeed) Sadly, this series has not been released on DVD and I've checked the BBC website and there doesn't seem to be any plan to do so.
