Hugely entertaining!
22 March 2009 | by (Widnes, England) – See all my reviews

When this aired sky one where going through their "lets be HBO UK" phase...... This was a strange show for the UK, Billed wrongly as a "Seinfeld for the UK" it was more a bad British version of Friends! The acting was awful (especially Baddiels) And all the supporting actors seemed to be there JUST to set up the gag.... Set up as an "american style sitcom" a lot of the humour was lost on the UK audience and I feel it would have been syndicated in the US if it had ran long enough over here.

BUT, all these horrible things went together to make something so bad its good! I think this was ahead of its time, as Seinfeld was for the UK, as my father likes to say "I don't get it, its just people talking about life" yet the same man will sit and watch "till death us do part" who just replace the talking with shouting and a touch more blatant ignorance.

My advice is, if you get the chance to see this (and its VERY rare) watch it, you will be surprised when you see it, stop wincing, relax and enjoy it for what it is 24 minutes of chewing gum for the eyes, switch off your brain and watch! its not for the faint hearted though, i wanted to put my foot through the TV screen on more than one occasion.
