Brilliant bit of squirrel
10 January 2015 | by (Perth WA) – See all my reviews

I watched episode one under protest and thought "what a load of crap". Three years later, I am hooked and I have watched the whole lot at least ten times over. Tamsin (Mummy) and Mark (Jim) are my stars but it wouldn't work without the whole ensemble A very low budget TV show with no special effects. Props are limited to a frozen fox and a splitting images Prince Charles mask.

This classic relies on nothing more than brilliant writing and acting.

They both conspire to make my belly ache with laughter.

I die every time that Jim flinches away from Wilson. Genius comedy.

Not to mention Gran accidentally kissing dad on the chest.

More please.
