Grows on you.
6 January 2006 | by (Warboys) – See all my reviews

Being a fan of Rob Brydon I watched the first episode and it wasn't quite what I expected and I wasn't sure whether I was too keen on it. I Sky +'ed (Is that a verb, I think not) the rest of the series and was in two minds whether to watch them, thankfully I did and I started to really enjoy it. It certainly doesn't contain many big laughs but it is quite unusual and nicely filmed. The episode where he stands up to the local thug (and murderer) is probably the best. I think for anyone who quite enjoyed it, I would say that it is worth another watch as you may enjoy it more the second time. If your expecting a real laugh a minute, hitting people over the head with a frying pan sort of show then don't bother, but if you like to see people trying something slightly different to the normal then give it a go, and yes I hope they make another series.
