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.

It has been too long since I laughed this hard and this much!
8 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had my reservations after reading the reviews. After watching the First episode, no doubt - funny and original. Make sure you stick around for the third and you will not be able to let it go.

Stereotypical characters in a brand new light. Excellent casting, perfectly matched the roles and the actors. The witty and snappy comments compliment the new character types not too often seen on TV. Original script with lines you can use in an everyday life. I must admit - I stole some and already used a few.

Without a doubt, one of the best progressive comedies as of late.

A must see! However, a warning: if you are accustomed to the typical, safe boilerplate comedies, this will probably not be for you. If you lack the necessary humor it could be viewed as extremely offensive on several levels - not intended as such. If you watch comedies for sex, turn on the porn channel, because this replaced most of the sex with wit and humor.
