Storyline

Recently dumped by girlfriend Lizzie - who is now his boss - office worker Sam Pinkett is the sole witness to a car crash on a lonely country road. Sam picks up an abandoned phone and hears an Oriental voice say, If you are not here by 5 o'clock we will kill your wife. Phil Bourne, the office mailroom boy, who still lives with his mum and craves excitement, encourages Phil to save the woman, keeping their involvement secret from the police, Lizzie and Sam's office rival Noel. The caller addresses Sam as Mr Stevens so the two men decide to visit Stevens at the local hospital, where Sam is almost operated on by accident and the man Sam believes to be Stevens is somebody else entirely. The pair thus decide to face the kidnappers alone. Written by don @ minifie-1

Great Kickoff
2 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

I've had this show queued up in Hulu for a while now. It kept getting pushed to the back burner in favor of other shows I keep up with, though, and it wasn't until yesterday, when I'd caught up on those other shows, that I decided to give this one a go.

Boy am I glad that I did. From start to finish, the episode held my attention. I appreciate that the character Sam's humor comes oftentimes, not from what he says, but what he's thinking or what's happened to him (such as in the case of the flashbacks from his flatmate's party the night before). And Phil is just hilarious all the way around, even when he's not meaning to be ("Probably got too much wasabi in it for you anyway..."; "Lock it down! Lock it down!"). The idea of the show is intriguing as well, and I can't wait to see what happens next and how this whole case of mistaken identity plays out.
