A forgottern classic?
31 May 2001 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

Eddie Izzard is a strange fish at time, and I'm sure he would be the first to admit it. But a sitcom about Cow's? Not as strange as you may think. The plot is simple enough. In the title sequence the history of cows revelling there sentience, then struggling for equality is quickly dispatched. Then it's just a case of Cow meet's girl, Girl cheets cow. and every one end's up in a nice barn. What makes this stand out though is that it was played by actors in Cow suits. Pam Ferris at the time was hugely popular as Ma Larking in the terrible 'Darling Buds of May' (the series that also sporned Catherine Zeta Douglas) but she was prepared to go Cow. This was a pilot unfortunately the series wasn't picked up, there was talk of bringing it back in conjunction with Aardman Animation, but that seemed to fizzle out. Though Izzard worked with them of the excellent 'Rex the Runt'. There was a 'Cow's' strip on Izzards web site for a while though that seems to have gone as well.
