Very Entertaining, Great series to cheer you up
6 February 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I don't know why some of these people are saying its not funny or cant act, or ugly people. what is wrong with these reviewers??

Samantha is Really Hot, and the others are a decent looking bunch. I really enjoy all three of the series and i hope they make many more. Its always good for a laugh, it always cheers me up.

Since this show is now into its third series i wondered how they would continue to keep it entertaining and interesting, but they do. although every episode has a different topic the show still has underlying themes such as; Dons lack of tact, his inability to commit to a relationship, his lust for his flat mate first Abby, then Samantha, his reliance on Eddie, Eddies willingness to care for Don in every way. Its never boring.
