Very funny, but sadly far to short a series.
14 August 2006 | by wearecitySee all my reviews

Looking through the about to be released titles at an online DVD store, I thought hold on Scully I remember that from when I was a kid and ordered a copy hoping it to be as good and funny as I vaguely remembered (remembering it is 22 years since I last saw the series).

Well I certainly wasn't disappointed, right for the start the laughs are thick and fast and I felt as though I was getting engrossed in the storyline already after the first episode as the characters are very easy to warm to.

As the series goes on there are still plenty of laughs to be had and the storyline is still strong and you really can't get enough of some of the characters.

The real downside is that I can't help feeling cheated that this didn't receive a second series, although I'm sure it never was intended to be the case.

I would have loved to have seen another series picking up the characters lives some 6 - 12 months down the line, given that the ending left it wide open for another series and you are left guessing what was to become of the lead characters.

All in all a series I will watch again and again.
