Storyline

Comedy about the ups and downs in the life of Bob Slay, an utterly obnoxious, rude, arrogant, and indolent, but extremely successful, marketing executive. His shy and downtrodden colleague Vaughan, who always ends up picking up the pieces, their frumpy chocoholic secretary, Maggie, who is on the verge of resignation, their sex-mad Marketing Director boss, and Bob's beautiful model girlfriend all join in the situation. Bob schemes and plots (but never does any work, nor care how many people he hurts), yet always wins in the end. Written by David Waterson

10 out of 10, British comedy at it's best.
6 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i would love to see series two of perfect world again, i haven't seen it since it aired on bbc2. i currently own series 1 and think it is absolutely fantastic. Paul Kaye is an absolute comedy genius and deserves to go very far. what a show, it doesn't come funnier than this. Bob Slay is one of the best characters in a sitcom, he's cruel, ruthless, and very funny. he is always putting himself in a corner but at the end he always comes out on top. his hapless assistant Maggie gets the brunt of Bobs cruelty, but she holds her own in a battle of sneakiness. Vaughan is another character who gets thrown to the sharks by Bobs ruthlessness, and he rarely has any kind of comeback. the marketing director however thinks of Bob as a son and is somewhat mentally challenged when it comes to behaving appropriately. all in all this is comedy writing and acting at its very best and there should definitely be a third series.
