Small time gangster, big time laughs
13 December 2011 | by (Bournemouth) – See all my reviews

I've enjoyed this dark comedy quite a lot so far. The basic plot is about an underworld debt collector who wants to go straight but somehow finds himself forced to cope with rising notoriety wthin the ranks of the criminal organisation he is working for. Contrary to another review on here, there is a lot of dark humour that can have you in stitches. If you want a serious crime drama, go and watch "Underbelly". This is much lighter material but never predictable. And married to a sex starved woman, what a lucky man ! He is perfect for this role, a lot of the humour comes from watching his facial expressions when confronted with unexpected problems. I give this series a 10 / 10 for an original plot line.
