Man Down? Thumbs Up!
3 November 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Greg Davies (probably better known as Mr Phil Gilbert from The Inbetweeners or as Cuckoo's reluctant father-in-law in Cuckoo) conceives and carries this brand-spanking new comedy series about a man-child with a lot of growing up to do.

When Dan's long-suffering girlfriend, Naomi (Deirdre Mullins) bins him for not taking life seriously, he tightens his belt (or should I say tightens the cords of his jogging bottoms after misplacing his only pair of trousers), scribbles down something that vaguely resembles a to-do- list and promptly seizes the day in his own unique half-a**ed way. Apart from the fact that he's a teacher who's considerably less mature than his pre-pubescent student body, he must also contend with his maniacal father played by Rik Mayall from The Young Ones. You heard me! The People's Poet is now old enough to play Greg Davies Dad! Adding insult to injury is the fact that Dan's friends are just as misguided as he is. Jo (Roisin Conaty) is an independent young go-getter who goes and gets things that only exist in her wonderfully warped mind. The only "straight-laced" person Dan knows is his close personal acquaintance/financial adviser, Brian (Mike Wozniak) who is often dragged into Dan's immature antics. Then again, Dan's co-worker, Emma (Jeany Spark) is fairly straight-laced... AND she has a nice a**e. Maybe she can put him right? Don't hold your breath!

BRIAN: The last time you said that you asked me which one of The Muppets my wife's vagina most looked like!

DAN: I know... and you said Gonzo... all purple... all messy thick tufts.
