There is nothing you don't love about the show...
8 June 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This show is very well written and I do love the score of the show. The stories do have a lot of humor and drama at the same time, it feels like real life sometimes. I wished there would be more shows with such an emotional touch and still taking the viewer on a funny ride. I recommend this series to everyone who loves to laugh and to experience British humor. The show tells the story of two elderly guys lol - they were formerly known as The Invisibles (robbers) and are now retired. The six episodes are telling a really believable story of these two guys, how they cope with the things that life handed them on a plate. Maurice (Anthony Head, very well know as Giles in Buffy - The Vampire Slayer) and his wife life together, she has no idea about him being still in action. Syd (Warren Clarke, known for his role as Dim in A Clockwork Orange) lives alone and his son causes the two to give up their retirement and start all over with the Invisibles.

Well so the story begins.

I love the show.
