What Dad's Army has in common with Hardware? Well, they both are pretty strange kind of comedy series - not really funny, but it's hard to stop watching them...
My problem is that I have huge expectations to each British comedy series and not without reason - besides classics like "Fawlty Towers", "Black Adder" or "Red Dwarf" there were really dozens of great British shows ("Allo Allo", "Yes Minister" or even "2 point 4 children") that I loved, but after them any even slightly good show is going to be disappointing.
And this is what happened with "Hardware" - I was expecting the show to be funny, which was a mistake. It is relaxing, but unfortunately not funny. I watched all the episodes and after each of them I was disappointed that the story was too simple, jokes too flat, situations too predictable, but despite that I still wanted to see next one.
As a show I would give 5/10, but since this suppose to be a comedy series I give that only 2/10 because even "IT crowd" from same years was funnier.
