Vicious tells the story of partners Freddie and Stuart, who have lived together in a small central London flat for nearly 50 years. Constantly picking each other apart and holding on to petty slights for decades, Freddie and Stuart are always at each other s throats, cracking snide remarks aimed at the other s age, appearance and flaws. However, underneath their vicious, co-dependent fighting, they have a deep love for one another. Freddie and Stuart are often joined by feisty best friend Violet and Ash, their young, upstairs neighbor.

Simply Brilliant
8 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

My favorite new comedy by far. Yes, there are a few 'inappropriate' (not dirty!) jokes here and there, but i't part of the show's charm - a show that don't give a damn about what's appropriate. With every one of the two lead actors having such a fine career, I think they earned the right to not be politically correct once in a while. Finally a decent comedy with great writing and superb performances by every single lead actor, especially Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi. Just as good as I hoped it would be.

I strongly recommend for anyone who's tired of the same American sitcom all over again every new season and looking for a laugh with a bit more class in it.
