A classic example of great brit TV that didn't make the grade when translated into an American sitcom.

I wished it to survive due to my partiality to this original.

It's comparable to Dennis' better known "Coupling", which is scripted just a bit tighter, and obviously more attractive. But "MbB" is just every bit as witty while being a little more down to earth and not confined to the sexual humor genre.
