I watched all of season 1 and 2 within a couple of days, once into the first episode I couldn't stop watching. It is such a clever written comedy, hilarious, great one liners and gags & superb how each cast member seem to have their own quotes which works well every episode, even Terry's constant farting doesn't effect the morale of the comedy.
The talented Julia Sawalha, who puts on a brilliant Australian accent left at end of season one which I thought would effect the shows continuity leading into season two but in comes the absolutely gorgeous Emma Pierson as Connie, another amazing talent who helps keep the show alive.
Overall this is a highly recommended comedy, definitely 10/10 and definitely in need of much more episodes, British television needs more humour of this quality.
