excellent stuff..
25 January 2008 | by (Swindon England) – See all my reviews

This is wonderful thursday night half hour comedy, Stephen Mangan is brilliant as Keith, a recovering alcoholic, currently being shown on BBC2 at 10pm. Just finished watching episode 3 ( god) .. very well structured plots, i love the scenes in the AA meetings with Christopher Fairbank ( Moxy from Auf Weidersein Pet) as the group leader. Tonights episode had a very funny scene when a pretty woman was talking to the group, and she caught Keith looking at her cleavage. Magnans scenes with his wife ( Kate Ashfield)are excellently portrayed. Fintan Ryan who wrote this show can be well pleased, its perfect sit on the sofa with a glass of wine comedy. Cant wait for the next 3 episodes, and hopefully another series. Well done to all concerned. I loved it.
