An intelligent RTE comedy
10 February 2001 | by (Dublin) – See all my reviews

Brilliant, sharp, intelligent and most importantly funny comedy, that bathes all sides of Dublin society in an equally critical light.A pleasant surprise from a station that brought us "Upwardly Mobile" and......well, thats about it really.Roll on the video release.
