This was one of the best comedy series of the 90's and was extremely quotable with characters such as the Simon Quinlank and Rod Hull and it's an absolute disgrace that it hasn't seen some kind of release yet.
I rewatched both seasons of the show that I 'obtained' and they still hold up today as they didn't rely on topical humour that much which can date a series.

Come on BBC get your stupid backside into gear and release this on DVD! I for one would buy it in a heartbeat!
