Trivia

In the first two series, the flat scenes were filmed in a real flat in Zodiac Court, Croydon (renamed as Apollo House in the show). However before series 3 began shooting the owners of the flat demanded more money and the producers decided to film the flat scenes in a studio with a set replicating the flat interior. Since then this is how the flat scenes have been filmed, with exterior shots of Zodiac Court tower block used as inserts between scenes. The studio for series 3 and 4 was a former carpet warehouse in Neasden, for series 5 and 6 a disused army barracks in Mill Hill was used and series 7 was filmed in the former studio of the now-cancelled The Bill (1984) in Merton.

Dry humour that'll make you laugh...
11 June 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

...and also consider how strange your own life can be, how unusual your own thoughts and reasoning seem when viewed through the eyes of another. The idea is much more than a gimmick; it forms the backbone and provides a lot of the most hilarious and often shocking moments of the show.

Like all good concepts that are given a successful platform to work from, you wonder why the idea wasn't more popular beforehand. Webb and Mitchell have a dark, dry sense of humour that will appeal only to certain individuals not so bound by convention, somewhat bohemian if you will. People not afraid to admit that their own thoughts and actions can seem completely bizarre when given a different perspective.

To really appreciate the show you definitely have to put yourself in the shoes of the two leads. You have to share in their shame, humiliations and triumphs - literally getting out what you put in. This is no soap opera that you tune into so that you can tune out, this is one that demands your full attention.

Webb and Mitchell have a lot of calibre as actors as this show is obviously very difficult to film, being as it is almost entirely filmed through the eyes of the duo. A lot of tricky close camera situations and complex edits are used and work seamlessly.

It certainly won't appeal to everyone - if it did it wouldn't be a very good show would it? - but those ready for challenging, dynamic television should buy the first two seasons on DVD and enjoy.
