I really can't believe how BBC Three decided to cancel this show after three seasons. They're definitely mental in the face. I've seen A LOT of comedy shows in my life, almost none of those could make me even smile. Some did of course, but these are shows that are regarded as the best ever made (Seinfeld, Chappelle's Show etc.). A feature a lot of sitcoms share, is that they're fun to watch, and are made interesting because by adding drama, but if you want a laugh, you're probably better of watching Dara O'Briain. I happened to come across this show and watched only five minutes after which I knew there will probably be nothing better on TV on all +200 channels. At this moment I watched, and enjoyed every episode. In the first season, it is made clear very quickly that Dan Clark is a comedy genius. Despite having a terrible cast (apart from David Armand), Clark was able to write a show so full of creative, unorthodox jokes, that the focus is only kept on him and Armand, while the other characters are only used to add some emotion to show. After one season, the cast changes however, taking an amazing turn for the better. With Laura Haddock, who is both funny and good looking, the writers are able to write hilarious banter between her and Clark, giving the show one star, and two great actors in supporting roles. The somewhat bad parts of the show, like a lack of decent minor characters, are so easily camouflaged by great writing, and the great chemistry between Clark and Armand, and Clark and Haddock. And I'll repeat: I can't believe how this show has been canceled, either a lack of marketing by the network, or just a network full of idiots. Everyone who's watched this, show can consider him/herself lucky for experiencing the great everyday phrases with Clark's twist like, insane in the mind, mental in the face, gaymen, roundhouse in the prick, and so on. I will definitely be on the lookout for future work of Dan Clark, as I'm sure it will be another piece of genius.
