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?
