A Road to Success
12 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When i first heard about 'Road to Nowhere' i initially thought it would be a let-down, but i found it to be a great laugh and throughly enjoyable.

It was very funny, and both Kay and Mcguinness were fab. It was very much side-splitting comedy, and everything from the opening credits to the background music, max's "how dare you", and the pig in episode 5, all made me laugh.

I do agree with other users' in saying that noticed more things the second time i watched the episodes, but this is because i knew what had happened, so inevitably you'd notice things more.

In all i was very impressed with 'Max and Paddy's road to nowhere' and i can't wait for it to be released on DVD, and for another upcoming series (fingerz crossed.
