Far from good...
25 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The trailers for this new show looked very promising. But in retrospect it was a brief pastiche of scenery/quip/scenery without offering any substance. Unfortunately that's what the full half hour of this "comedy" is anyway. I am none the wiser as to who any of the characters are and more ominously, I don't really care. There was a series of repetitive private jokes between various characters that remained private because the audience was either not let in on them or the jokes were too poor anyway. During the entire duration of this so called comedy, I didn't laugh once. I tried, seduced by the beauty of the pretty little rotund seaside café. But an aesthetically pleasing setting doesn't make a programme watchable, as is the case here. Quite a sad waste of talent, really. I gave the show 2 out of 10 because it wasn't the absolute pits. But it was far from good. Sorry.

Stop Press: For the sake of balance, I have to say that I now know that quite a few people I know who enjoy the show. They must be mad.
