The hedonistic mood of the friends' soon turns sour when they realize Alvo isn't quite the man they thought he was.

yeah, nah, yeah....nah.
17 May 2016 | by leescottbrownSee all my reviews

The highlights of this show are undoubtedly the quality of the acting and the scenery. In the midst of watching Mad Dogs I was of the opinion that it was never trying to be a serious drama, or even a black comedy...more of a middle-aged male romp with great interplay between the protagonists. No matter how bad the situation we found our dysfunctional 4 working their way into, the viewer is drawn into the hope of a light at the end of the tunnel

Or at least that was the case until they decided to add on the two episodes for the fourth series...anyone who is either just about to embark on viewing this, or is already part way through...go no further than series 3...in fact I'd stop at the end of series 1, make up your own ending and save the disappointment!
