Trivia

The show's working title was "Crazy", and the original concept was to have Chris Langham's therapist talking to various celebrity clients. Langham disliked the idea, and suggested that Paul Whitehouse play all the client roles - even though the two had never worked together, or even met. See more »

Absolutely Brilliant
20 September 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I never bother with these voting, or commenting things but I thought I would with Help! Outstanding British Comedy. Very little can be regarded in the same category as 'Help!' for me. I'd put Spaced in there for sure, but nothing else jumps to mind for having the same level of outstanding acting, scripts, originality and that marvellous balance between hilarious comedy and heart wrenching emotional scenes, making it more than just a sitcom.

If anyone knows where I can buy a copy please let me know because I only have my dwindling memories of it at the moment.

We could all do with a little "Help!".
