Brilliant....if you have a mental age of 12.
14 August 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Honestly, how can this get an average rating of 7.+? The jokes are tripe. I have written better material and I have bovine spongiform encephalopathy. The banter you hear in pubs is 10 times funnier than this pap. Every episode is the same. Same plot over and over again. "Gaz, will you have sex with me?" , "yeah, but not up the pooper" (Massive laugh from audience)......that's it, honestly, that's it. Poor....... This show gets shown on BBCThree, day in day out. It feels as though it's on 24 hrs a day. You only have to see one show to know how the rest of the series pans out. "gaz, blah, blah, blah." (insert some terrible double entendre reply). Do yourself a favour and actually go to the pub for a couple of pints and a packet of crisps.
