Impossible to write a spoiler

This show is pure class!

Not only are most of the characters very funny but Limmy also has the ability to look at the world in a particular manner... sometimes after a sketch i think flip me he's right there, i never thought of that before... other times i think i'm glad someone else has picked up on that as well.

You well know after the first 10 mins of the pilot whether or not you will like this show..

i would say give this a chance and you could well be glad that you did.

nice one Limmy
