I saw a DVD of this show in a Charity Shop and decided to give it a try
it was one of the best purchases I have ever made. The show is
wonderfully funny, even though it is clearly not a big-budget production. So long as you have some understanding of the Welsh (the same way you need to understand a little about Yorkshire to appreciate Beiderbecke Affair/Connection properly) you will probably love this quirky comedy - and you will never see the Fiat Panda the way ever again! The DVD leads the viewer to season two first, which is fine because the programme had developed its identity by then and - frankly
the second season had more money spent on it than the first and had
the advantage that Brian May of Queen admired it so much he recorded a new theme tune. Some excellent guest performers (Brian Blessed & Bill Odie to name but two)and the main characters play off each other beautifully. Well worth a watch!
