This English sitcom is about Terry, Gary, James and Patrick, four Londoners who remained best friends and confidants past their sexual prime, married or even divorced, some with children, but still with a natural appetite for the ladies, no longer physically first choice but disposing of sufficient means (financial and socially, as they are successful in their respective professions) to be quite attractive; alas the wisdom of experience often proves somewhat illusory.

Think HBO's Sex in the City transposed to England and the four females transformed into four men facing age 50. As with the HBO show, virtually all they think or talk about is sex. some of this is very amusing. some not at all.
A focus on characters well out of the advertising industry's favored demographic is refreshing in and of itself. The acting is very good. The show will live or die on the basis of writing. These characters and their libidinous fixations could become tedious before long.
For fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, be warned, the character Anthony Head plays says and does some very, very un-Gileslike things.
