One of the best new comedy series I have seen in a while, very much in the Judd Apatow school of male modern neurosis. Think Forgetting Sarah Marshall but with a slightly ruder script. Oh and a bit of Scrubs/Family Guys style fantasy elements. Great looking cast, some genuine laugh out loud moments and while the odd gag does fall a little flat it more than makes up for it when one of it's big set piece jokes pays off. Mays is a joy to watch as Rob and Dunacan James is unexpectedly excellent - sending himself up to perfection.
The supporting cast are all pulling their weight as well, Nigel Harman shows a gift for comedy we've not seen before, Ingrid Oliver as his sister has a wonderful acerbic wit and Ruth Bradley charms as his long suffering work colleague. Steve John Shepherd's character Paul however takes the prize for best of the bunch playing a character just about on the right side of bizarre. A really great performance.
With a will they/won't they sub plot running throughout between Mays and Bradley, there's an unexpected tenderness in some of the scenes which may seem at odds with some of the more gross out elements of the script, yet instead enable us to care a lot more about the characters.
A brilliantly funny comedy and a treat to watch.
