After watching AL Murray on An audience with i became this mans greatest fan. He is so big headed, rude, but to the point. This sitcom is the best. Its mainly a one set show but the jokes as so well timed, well worded and Political Correctness is nowhere to be seen (and in Britain these days it s a blessed relief).
Lines like "never confused" "where would we be without rules?" (wont put the answer) are priceless and i even use them in everyday life. This man is a genius, give him another run of this sitcom and let it shine again.
