Fantastic!
6 November 2004 | by McGowan_MSee all my reviews

In response to the members who say they're 14 & 16 respectively and STILL watch the show, I'm 35 and I love it as well. Probably makes a real saddo.

I normally get home from work about 4.30 in the afternoon just as this is starting and after a lousy day at work, it's nice to have something ridiculous to laugh at before I switch over to BBC2 and endure the (frequently) humiliating misery that is 'The Weakest Link'.

I don't watch a huge amount of TV but this is compulsive viewing and I recommend it to anybody, irrespective of age. The cast are great, the story lines are always funny and all 5 of the main characters are believable, likable individuals.

Long may this show continue.
