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

A forgotten Gem
2 September 2004 | by (North West England) – See all my reviews

I agree with the previous review, this was a great show, and the fact it didn't get great ratings surprised me, for some reason I always love characters who are complete gits; Bob Slay, Alan B'stard, JR Ewing etc.

Paul Kaye fresh from his Dennis Pennis character being just as obnoxious, his boss is just as hilarious, a sex mad fiend who can never see Slay for who he really is.

Actually the first series is available on BBC Video to buy, but no mention of it being released on DVD, will just have to record it off the TV onto DVD when it next comes round, that'll teach the BBC not to release it! ;-)
