5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious comedy 26 July 2013
By FJY
Verified Purchase
This was recommended to me by a friend. I have to admit, I had not heard of this series before, but I later found out that it was tucked away on BBC3, which explains why. I watched all the box-set within a few days and the Christmas Special too, which is also included in this set. I have not laughed as much at a comedy in a long time, it was absolutely hilarious and the writing and acting were both top drawer. Dan Clark is the main star, he plays Don Danbury, who is basically a slacker and all-round layabout. I think that we all know people like Don. The series follows the trials and tribulations of Don and his many failed relationships. It is an unusual series and I had not seen anything quite like it before, so it is definitely unique and quirky. I would not advise anyone to let young children see this, though, because it features a lot of "mature" content and language. I enjoyed this greatly and I award it the full five stars, because I really cannot fault this series at all. Buy it, if you like adult comedy. I doubt that you will be disappointed, because I wasn't. Great stuff and I hope that we hear more from Dan Clark in the future.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, but not great. 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase
This show was cute - entertaining, but not something I would highly recommend. It's one of those types of shows where if it's on you might watch it, but you wouldn't care if you missed an episode here or there. It has it's moments ad there are some funny lines. I don't regret purchasing it - just not something I'd probably re-watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars great comedy, bad acting 18 Mar 2014
By Travis
Verified Purchase
It's one of the low budget comedies by bbc 3 that is just so great because every guy can relate to either the awkwardness of eddie and the cocky, over confident(ness) of Don. Plus Abbie and Samantha are pretty hot. what's not to like?
