Very good Belgian humor
3 January 2006 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This one is great. One of the best comedies made ever. You have to like the style. All the small things in it makes it a great series. Every character has something special. Alain has a great laugh. Sammy Tange is his best friend, and when those 2 are laughing together, you have to laugh too. The story begins on a normal workday. The boss of the department is fired, and someone has to replace him. There are three friends working on the same 'working-island', and one of them is going to be boss. That will be Guido. That results in a new employee to replace Guido (Alain is the replacer), but he is not welcome at first. This all results in very strange situations you cannot imagine. They think that Sammy Tange is the devil. Frankie wants to introduce games like 'helicopter' (spinning on your chair). Guido is not able to handle his new job. Sammy Tange can talk backwards. And so on... In the 2nd series, there is a new guy introduced, called Bucky. When he is around, all kinds of different situations are created, and things get worse and worse everyday.
