Tiffany....you and me....How much to lose the lad?
11 October 2009 | by NickDeckardSee all my reviews

More comedy genius from Marc Wooton! (Make sure you watch Shirley Ghostman and Cyderdelic as well) I had to smirk a bit at the other comment here already - the reviewer was disturbed by the one episode which I thought was hilarious...you do know this was the intent don't you??!!! The other comment also mentions the one character, Matt, as the only likable guy of the series - I didn't, I thought he was really up himself! This just shows the genius of Wooton even more - making us 'take sides' with certain characters. I have to admit wanting them all to fail (except perhaps the girl in the last episode who put up with possibly the most embarrassment of all of them!) Im not going to comment on the episodes - just buy the Shirley Ghostman box set (which is genius) and this TV series included - the best DVD extra of all time no question!
