Storyline

Tour rep Brad (Danny Dyer) is determined to win the informal competition among the male reps to sleep with as many female clients as possible, while his friend Mikey (Des Coleman) is looking for true love. Brad gradually learns responsibility and human concern from the awful examples set by corrupt manageress Alison (Davinia Taylor) and self-serving treacherous super-stud Mario (Rik Young). Along the way we get some memorably gross-jokes and one or two moments of rather touching tenderness, as well as a convincing portrait of what people go to Ibiza for--loud, large times of music and drunken excess. Brad is convincing as a young man who learns better from experience and Des Coleman makes Mikey a three-dimensional, soulful romantic with a wicked sense of humor rather than merely good personified.

Execllent and really funny
10 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

When I saw the ad for this on TV I was expecting another silly Sky One show about Brits in Ibiza but what I got was a really funny and entertaining 2 hours! It was a great show and I would imagine it to be realistic in terms of what those holiday reps get up to when they're supposed to be working. The characters were really good from the poncy loverboy Mario to the good hearted Brad and they were characters that you cared about and were interested in how things would turn out for them. I thought this was going to be a weekly series so I'm a bit disappointed that it was only a once off but I won't complain as it was the best bit of TV I've seen in a while!
