Fitz returns to Manchester after living 10 years in Australia with his wife and youngest son. He is soon drawn into the investigation of a British soldier who may have been traumatized by his years serving in Northern Ireland.
I've read some bad reviews about this show but it hasn't changed my opinion of it. Starring some brilliantly funny British comedians like Matthew Horne, Nicholas Burns & Chris O'Dowd it follows Leo (Matthew Horne) as he tries to win back his ex-girlfriend. Also, some very funny other stories like Jase(Chris O'Dowd)'s struggle to stay with his semi-sane wife and evil talking baby.
Although a bit on the bizarre side I found this show and it's characters, e.g Jase's evil baby, Uncle Jesus etc, to be hilarious, unique and the show itself being a little gem. I think if you like comedy shows like Nathan Barley, The IT crowd or The Mighty Boosh you are sure to like this.
I will certainly be buying this when it comes out on DVD. The problem now is, with no roman's empire or peep show on now, what am I going to watch in the evenings?
