Storyline

Four Belfast lads, two of whom still live at home with their mammies, while the other two have on/off relationships with mothers their own ages, seek gainful employment while prepared to bend if not break the law. Hoker, the fifth fellow, and a friend of young Shay, breaks the law in a way that ends the boys in deeper sh** (sorry, deeper trouble) every comical half-hour episode. Written by Patrick Duncan

Truthful, witty comedy and a great cast - deserves a wider audience
8 July 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This Belfast-based comedy series was shown on BBC 3 a few years ago and criminally has never been repeated. It's poles apart from some of the so-called comedies they show now. The whole show is superbly put together, colourful location filming, deviously funny plots, natural performances, witty dialogue and a superb rock soundtrack. The interplay between the four main characters is excellent. Some of the humour is local to Belfast but the acting brings it to life and it never leaves the audience behind. Some great minor characters too such as local pi**head Crazy Horse. There are some memorable episodes, including when they find a dead cow and try to sell the carcass meat not realising it has died from foot and mouth, and when they had to fake a bus crash to claim injury compensation from the bus company. BBC please bring it back NOW!
