What is this?, 15 August 2012
Author: Simon Rodgers from England, United Kingdom

I saw a bit of this programme not so long ago and I couldn't believe what I was seeing.

Basically this was a basic sitcom with a very simplistic storyline. The only thing there which makes it worth watching for some people is the fact that the characters just really talk about what they want and there appears to be no censorship on what they want to say. Obviously there is, but the way they go on, it just feels like there isn't.

One good example of this would be a man and a woman talking in a local shop and they are discussing a one night stand that they had in quite some detail. The woman eventually invites the man back for a dinner party she is holding and asks him not to go on about, let's say some very personal activity.

There is not a lot of bad language although there is some and you can tell they're not really to bothered about using it. They are not bothered about talking about slightly morbid issues either like somebody's dead mother or a dead cat.

There is also no canned laughter which makes the programme have another twisted feel.

All in all the nature of the sitcom shocks you into laughing for a little while and then when you are used to it, it's not really that good.
