Great show, great episode
24 August 2008 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Just started watching this series after being recommended it, and thought it's great. After seeing the first episode I wasn't quite sure what I thought. It was good, but it just takes some getting used to at first I think. In this one we already feel we know these characters and can relate to them.

FOTC is not like a lot of regular sitcoms out there with a laugh-track and obvious jokes. It's a lot smarter than that. Sort of like Spaced in that regard...

The songs are surprisingly good, and very very funny. Great lyrics, good vocals and they seem to be able to play any genre.

Loved their pi**-take on the Pet Shop Boys' "West End Girls".

All in all hilarious stuff. Hope we'll be seeing a lot more from these guys.
