not bad, but shallow
2 September 2007 | by Cruiser1990See all my reviews

while the series itself isn't that bad, it becomes difficult to feel any sort of connection for any of the characters, with the show delivering some good jokes in the right places there are also some very repetitive and not so funny jokes, such as, the bar man Alex constantly taking his shirt off each time coming up with strange reasons to do so, the main problem is that there is no way to connect with any of the characters in this series.

There is no real connection between any character on the show and they are very vein self obsessed characters, for instance, the show moves at an incredible speed in which there is already a wedding plot discussed in the third episode, (personal opinion, the series is getting ahead of itself and moving too quickly). so it seems that unless something drastic happens in the series then nothing will change and it will go downhill from there
