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.

i have been watching this show, which is on it's first series, after seeing interviews with Al Murray in a lot of the monthly magazines. Al plays a sexist, narrow minded, stubborn landlord of what must be the scruffiest pub in Britain, where only the 5 regulars seem to be the only customers! The laughs come thick and fast as Murray rants about women, the French('they're up to something!!') Brussels, and pub theme nights('the only theme a pub needs is BEER!!!') Julia Sawahla(Absolutely Fabulous) plays the brash, foul mouthed Aussie barmaid who never gets paid, and Phil Daniels (Quadrophenia) plays the local slob who keeps getting barred out!If you like the humour of 'Harry Hill' and 'Bottom', then you'll love 'TGMP'.
