Simon Pegg, Master of Modern Comedy and the gorgeous Jessica Stevenson (yes I did say gorgeous!) have written and starred in what I consider to be the best British comedy ever.
From Colin the lovable dog to Brian the nutty artist who lives downstairs, the script and acting is 5*.
Set in London with a fantastic cast including the hilarious Nick Frost as Mike (later Ed in Shaun Of The Dead along with Simon Pegg as Shaun and Jessica Stevenson appearing in cameo role) and Julia Deakin as Marsha, the permanently drunk landlady who lives upstairs, you know you're in for a great night on the TV.
It was a shame that there was only ever 2 series made however I can understand why it ended when it did.
Best character??? Brian as the somewhat over-emotional artist (Anger, Pain, Fear, Aggression...)
My favourite moments in the series??? Tyres enjoying the effects of the rave culture with the help of various household noises!!!
Best Line (episode 1) Tim : Daisy this is Brian... Daisy : oh hi, Do you rent downstairs?... Brian : Do you mean am I gay?
All In All - ENJOY!!! You Americans don't know what you're missing!!!
