Trivia

There is a cuddly toy stoat in a different place on the set in each episode. This was provided by Dave Willson, a crew member whose nickname is Weazel (the stoat toy was obviously mistaken for a weasel). This lead to the game of 'Spot the Weasel'. See more »

Misses the mark badly
24 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show appears to be strongly influenced by two '70s comedies, "Doctor in the House" and "The Young Ones." Unfortunately it lacks the charm of the former and the manic mockery of the latter and ends up as forgettable at best.

I really was looking forward to this, I work at a Uni (as an IT person) and I wanted to empathise with the characters, but the "characters" are nothing more than a single concept. With concept characters the actors really have to flesh them out and this isn't happening. There needs to be someone we care about, someone, quirky but normal. Sadly there isn't.
