This is one of the worst comedy shows I've ever seen. What a terrible waste of an immense talent like Jessica Stevenson, it's truly tragic. The punchlines are visible from several miles away, the acting is poor and the plots are flimsy. It's essentially children's' television. Greg Wise gives a pathetic performance, while Raquel Cassidy is wasted (she was fantastic in 'Teachers').

Total trash, avoid at all costs.
