Storyline

Sam's Game is about four friends who get involved in each others lives and loves, while renting flats in a large London house. Sam is big-hearted and gutsy, Sam is always up for it, but underneath the confident image she is just as insecure as any of us. Alex is Sam's neurotic flatmate - just like most people having one of those days, Alex appears to be having one of those lives! Phil is Sam's neighbour Phil is living proof of the maxim that those who live by the flirt, die by the flirt - a man very much attached to his self-image of easy going charmer and Marcia is Sam's upstairs neighbour, Marcia is also the waitress at their local café - a chronic gossip with big attitude. Sam and Phil are flirting friends, Sam and Alex are firm friends and Alex and Phil are friends through association with Sam; and Marcia thinks they are all good for a gossip. Written by Anonymous

Could this be the worst sitcom ever?
3 April 2002 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Very possibly, yes. This is the worst example of TV today. Loud annoying television personality Davina McColl's complete lack of talent or comic timing aren't helped by a terrible setting and horrificly "ironic" dialogue.

McColl must have had incriminating pictures of Irish comedy genius Ed Byrne but his turn in this tripe is one of the only redeeming features of the show. Although he looks embarrassed all the way through it, his infectious good humour and energy make you forget Davina's annoying cackling or Tristan Gemmils constipated acting abilities.

Its basically a complete rip off of Friends complete with adjoining flats and an ultra trendy coffee shop and as well as being a stupid show, its also annoying and unfunny.

A wasted opportunity for Byrnes comedy talents (his follow up show, "The Riordans" was slightly less worse but horrofic all the same) and a real insult on TV viewers intelligence everywhere.
