A perfect laid back easy comedy, 31 October 2006
Possibly one of the most underrated and finest comedies ever written.
Fabulous cast, comprising mainly of misfits, dreamers and losers, who
just gel together perfectly under the guidance of Sam and Dex. Some
fantastic comedy moments such as the mix up with the music at Dex's
funeral, with the theme tune from Minder blasting out instead of the
theme tune from The Bodyguard. And Basils dates at the Golden Rickshaw
are cringingly embarrassing. Plenty of touching moments too, the
sadness that Sam feels due to his wife's Alzheimer's, and the sexual
feelings he has for Reen. A superb understated piece of humour which
lasted 3 series, probably enough before running out of steam and
finishing on a high as all good comedies should do.
