Having only the vaguest of recollections of "Human Remains" from it's initially screening on television back in 2000, I was in for a real treat when I finally got round to re-watching the series on DVD.

The series follows six separate couples (on per episode) with each pair's relationship in varying states of disrepair or marital bliss. The spoof documentary style of the show, brilliantly executed and just as well implemented as it is in "The Office", is one of the two main reasons why the show works so well and justifiably merits such a high rating on this site. The second reason why the show is so brilliant is the writing and performances of Julia Davis and Rob Brydon.

Both Davis and Brydon are not only great writers, but have a great comprehension of the sub-genre they're working in, delving into their characters with such depth that it's not only incredibly easy to believe them as their comedic creations, but barely recognize them from each episode as they don a different disguise and slip into a new persona. They also complement each other fantastically well, with neither overshadowing the other. The regular moments of solid improvisation are also gems in this show, and it's great to see how both Davis and Brydon instantly understand the other, allowing each other to carry off the line.

All in all a brilliant show that unfortunately doesn't have wider recognition. A real showcase of Julia Davis' talents and probably the best thing Rob Brydon has ever done.
