George makes several critical remarks on the Swiss in a few episodes, one of being that "they haven't been bothered to invent their own language". The Swiss do have their own language called Romansh, although it's not as common as the other languages spoken in Switzerland. See more »

I was an avid watcher of Absolutely as a kid at secondary school and this spin off was also a must watch. Jack Docherty and Moray Hunter managed to continue the surrealism of these frankly bizarre flatmates into full half hour episodes with some aplomb. I'm not sure how the production values will have dated, but the humour still hits the mark. This series has been absent from retailers for a good while now, but happily Channel 4 have seen fit to release it on iTunes. It would have been nice to have been able to get it on DVD like the rest of the Absolutely stuff, but it's better than having to peer through the snow of VHS recordings.
