Storyline

Follows Council Officer Gerald Wright, a man dedicated to the minimization of risk, even where no actual risk exists. If only Gerald were able to control his own life with the same benevolent despotism with which he regulates other peoples'. Sadly he can't. A recent divorcée and new single Dad, Gerald Wright's personal life is just one long struggle against the petty irritations and inconvenience which bedevil all our lives. Those 21st century slings and arrows of outrageous fortune against which Gerald's lengthy rule book is no defense at all. Written by BBC One

Awful
24 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I actually watched up until episode 4, just to give it a proper chance. Every time I watch it I hate myself a little more.

The writing is terrible, the 'jokes' are flat, the characters aren't likable and the acting sucks.

Why this is on the BBC I don't know. I'd have a hard time giving it a slot on channel 5 at the midnight slot on a Wednesday.

If you're a lover of health and safety, you'll hate this show. If you're a hater of health and safety, you'll hate this show.

I'm having a hard time filling up the required amount of lines to say just how bad this show is. If this last paragraph looks like filler text then it is. I will say that this is the first review I've ever given on IMDb, even though I've been a member for years. That's how bad this show is. I had to tell you.
