An offbeat comedy from the team behind 'Smack the Pony', set in a hospital, and is very much character-based, with storylines involving a staff liasion officer who hates people, a humourless consultant who thinks he's funny, and a handful of sexual predators and inadequates. Written by
I really enjoyed green wing. i like the fact that it's kind of surreal and doesn't follow any set type of comedy. The laughs aren't clear lines, quips but a mix of things. So many comedies feel very forced but this doesn't, it's more relaxed. The characters are really accessible too, and Sue White and Guy Secretan are Really funny. But then even the 'straight' characters are much funnier than the regular stuff. and no 'learning' or 'growing', thank god. the comedy is quite soft, yet it's still enjoyable. Defo one of the top British comedies of recent years, with 'The Office' and 'Alan Partridge'. I really hope it has a second series, but it has to, right? eh?
