Best thing on TV for a long time
12 March 2004 | by (Southampton, England) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure what's wrong with me, as I'm only in my twenties and this programme seems like something my nan would like, but I absolutely loved it. Also, I have hated everything else Michelle Collins has ever been in. I came across it by chance at the start of the second series, so I missed some of the build up, but I was drawn in right from the first episode I saw.

It's hard to define why I like it so much, as a straight description of the main storyline makes it sound like a soap opera or something. The main point of dramatic tension is whether the 2 main characters played by Paul Kaye and Michelle Collins will get it on. However, it's a mixture of the characterisation and mood and humour that mix together to make something that has a touch of magic.

I hope they repeat this at some point, as I would love to see the first series. Highly recommended.
