User Reviews

 
Mitchell and Webb have done it again.
22 January 2021 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

It definitely takes a couple of episodes to bed in, and for you to get the feel of it, but once you do, you will be well and truly hooked.

If you're expecting something similar to Peep show, forget it, this is an altogether different, and individual piece of work.

The one question you'll want the answer to, what exactly is David's game? What's he up to, and what is he after?

The humour is dark, it's bleak, but it is so deliciously satisfying throughout.

I love the characters, they're all great, Geoff is outrageous. I can't think of I've see Penny Downie in a comedy role before, but boy is she good.

I am so glad there's a second series.

I thoroughly enjoyed it, 9/10.
