Absolutely Awful
6 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched a few episodes last night and eventually turned off the TV out of sheer boredom. This program is absolutely terrible. I've seen this show before and didn't like and tried to give it a second chance last night. The characters are very dry and boring. The writing is so predictable it's not even funny. It tries to be clever about relationships but all the conclusions they come to are so dull and obvious that I really don't see why they bother to try.

This awful program is topped off by one of the lamest laugh tracks ever. If the fake audience isn't even enjoying it, you can be sure that real people will find it just as boring. Save yourself the trouble and avoid this!
