Brilliantly Surreal
19 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Loved it. Think you need to watch it more than once though, as sometimes the surreal humour is a bit hit and miss first time round, and to the above reviewer Per 81 or something, Matt Berry has ALWAYS been funny, you've never watched the IT crowd thats why.

Loved Eric, bob's son, didn't realise he is actually Norwegian. Not sure about the sex mad neighbour, seems very odd, and whats with taking photos of men's crotches....'shudder'.

Vic and Bob back on form again, and so what, its shooting stars in sitcom style. Better than the unfunny Miranda and Mrs Browns boys.

Smells like lynx.
