British Comedy at its Best
16 November 2001 | by JBLOSSSee all my reviews

The two series have been superb - the humour is as dark as it gets and the characterisation is great too. It's like nothing else that's been on tv and brings back the horrific times that I used to live in a small town. Brilliant and hope there's another series on the way. To have this and "Spaced" around at the same time shows there's some excellent talent in British comedy writing.
