Popular "Odd Couple"-type sitcom from Catalunya
28 August 2004 | by Steven CapsutoSee all my reviews

This engaging, long-running sitcom focuses on two affable losers and their colorful friends.

Lopez is a thirtysomething schlemiel who works at a radio station. After being dumped by his girlfriend and demoted at work, he winds up sharing an apartment with David, a goofy, twentysomething, spoiled rich kid whose authoritarian former nanny still does his laundry and bathes him. David is on the outs with his snobby father, who had a fit when he learned that David was in acting school rather than being a business/law double major at a local university.

The cast, who had all worked together in the Krampak theater company, have a wonderful chemistry, and the supporting roles (Emma the upstairs neighbor who is the object of our heroes' desire, David's gay best friend Pol, the wonderfully bizarre nanny Carbonell, and others) keep things humming along at a brisk pace.

At this writing, the show is in its sixth season. The episodes air in Catalan on TV3 throughout the Catalunya region of Spain. The series has also been repeated on the Spanish cable/satellite channel Paramount Comedy in a dual- language edition, with audio tracks available in the original Catalan and dubbed in Spanish.
