This is a very odd little comedy, a satire on modern office life. In truth, there's enough material here for a great five minute sketch, but stretched out to half-an-hour it really seems to groan. There are vague reminders of David Nobbs' 1970s sitcom 'The Rise and Fall of Reginald Perrin', but not really the zim of that brilliant series; and absolutely none of the contemporary pointedness of Scott Adams' cartoon 'Dilbert'. A few smiles can be found, but in truth, this is a boring half-hour that even the distinguished cast (of two) can't make interesting; in fact, they seem rather bored themselves in performing it.
