I can understand why some of its more outlandish sketches has received criticism from one-off viewers, but following through the series, characters and plots develop to hilarious consequence. Michelle Gomez (Scottish nymphomaniac) is a comedy genius - fans should check her out in the similarly underrated 'Book Group'.
