It's a solid 2, at best... On a scale of 0 to 1, that is. BRILLIANT!!
9 June 2011 | by (Collingswood, NJ USA) – See all my reviews

The Character that Steve Coogan has created, or rather perfected, for Saxondale is deeply, profoundly demented. But it's Coogan's mastery of the nuances of bitter, disillusioned, middle aged neurosis that makes his character so appealing, so universal. It's impossible not to identify with the short tempered, self centered, frustratingly inflexible, outrageously arrogant exterminator. It's hilarious, the ease with which his chatty, oddly attractive dispatcher presses his buttons - perhaps lovingly teasing him - and undermines his ruggedly assembled self-image. It's like watching a Medieval fortress collapse under the weight of a butterfly.

Saxondale's life is all behind him. He lives in the past where all his great heroes and great ideals were born and died, along with his philosophy & references & hair style & car. Actually, the yellow fast back Mustang is quite cool. He is now nearly alone in a shallow & tedious world of semi-intelligent optimists; his once fiery passions doused by the forces of mediocrity, or so he would tell it. His wife owns an alternative lifestyle shop where she conceives tee shirt slogans to shock and disgust the straight world. She does this with the casual innocence of a florist. She tests his patience but somehow avoids his wrath because, well, he loves her. His rage unleashes at the most absurd inappropriate moments, usually after someone has failed to grasp the stunning genius of one of his savagely witty quips. It's a hostile hybrid of The Office's David Brent and any other show in the history of broadcast TV that featured a misunderstood dreamer. An undervalued, little recognized, criminally ignored treasure of a programme that saved me from many a laugh-less evening. Series 2 actually surpasses the first. One of my all time favorites, that grows more wonderful each time I climb aboard for another action packed adventure in the fast paced world of pest control.
