Storyline

The Pub Landlord is a small-minded, bullet headed Little Englander whose prejudices mask a surprisingly sensitive, vulnerable and confused man. He is King of his own world but outside of the pub he is nothing. His wife and son have left him and the pub is grotty and unpopular under his patronage. Yet his few regulars stay loyal to him.

Sky producing a good show?
4 December 2000 | by (Middlesbrough, England) – See all my reviews

This is without a doubt one of the funniest shows British television has produced in ages. Al Murray is superb as he translates perfectly his stand-up character, the landlord, into a sitcom star. His unusual and un-PC rantings almost always hit the spot and though his supporting characters are rarely given any material to work with who cares? He carries the show on his own with only Terry and, more recently, The Prof lending any comic support. Julia Sawalha is completely wasted. Steve is equally unfunny, and he's a stand-up comic apparently, but to be fair to them they haven't much to work with. The gags come fast and often and with most of them revolving around the pub trade (which has been meticulously copied, go to a real pub during the day and you'll see what I mean), the French and the landlord's own take on life, they're always good. A rare treat and I've become quite hooked, here's to a second series.
