F***ing Funny!
23 April 2004 | by (Cheltenham, England) – See all my reviews

Although I would slightly agree that this program is a slight rip-off of "meet the parents" etc., I would also say that it is much funny!

Some of the jokes are obviously going to happen, and you find yourself squirming for Howard. The other jokes come from nowhere and are hillarious.

It may well be unbelievable at times, but that is what true comedy is about! Not boring dull American comedy...

My advise would be to watch the first episode for yourself and if you don't like it or have "seen it all before" then don't watch anymore!

Personally, I can't wait until this comes out on DVD! :)
