Funniest thing I've watched since Royle Family
7 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

This series has been fantastic!!!! There hasn't been a single episode that hasn't made me laugh out loud hysterically! The casting is absolute perfect! The characters are so funny together. Mrs Treacher especially because you don't expect such vulgar language from an old woman which makes it all the more funnier.

Eddie is a complete weirdo but he is great and as for Don he is one FUNNY guy!!! Hot chicks make this work too So many funny lines. I'll be gutted when it's over and I hope they do a series 4!!

I don't know I even came to watching it but glad I did. Don the main character aka "d1ckhead" just rips the p1ss out of everyone that comes in contact with him. He is vain, shallow, a complete loser but yet at the same time he is completely lovable

The fact that he is written this himself makes him a complete comedy genius in my opinion.

I guarantee you will not be disappointed with this some of the scenes are so outrageous you can't help but laugh and poor old Eddie is so naive he gets so much stick!
