Perfect Comedy
17 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

I have to say that this undiscovered gem of a comedy is pretty much flawless throughout all 6 episodes. It's almost an Australian "Fawlty Towers" in that it probably shouldn't get a second season even though I'd be really keen to see one.

Don Angel and Ray Leonard Leonard are the perfect polar opposite match. A beautiful combination of sleazy, inept entrepreneur and jaded, world weary, intelligent but defeated writer makes for a perfect match in this exceptionally well written, but more so, brilliantly performed piece of comedy. Kim Gyngell and Wayne Hope shine, together with the supporting roles, with not a performance out of place.

I own this on DVD, watch it regularly, and quotes from it have become part of the regular banter/vocabulary in our household. Selfishly, I like the idea of not many people discovering this as it makes it all the more special. For those few of you in the world who happen upon this comment, do yourself a favour, grab a copy, sit back and watch how it's meant to be done.
