I watched the series on TV, and loved it so much I had to buy it on DVD. At first I was reluctant to as I thought I'd only watch it once and then I'd forget about it, making it a waste of money. I got it and watched it, and I want to watch it over and over again. I love this programme, I don't think there's ever been anything as good as it before. You can really connect with the characters, as they're incredibally "three dimensional." It makes you laugh, but it can also make you cry. Don't be put off by the language and the sex, see past that and you'll realise that you're watching probably the best TV programme to come out of Britain in years. I lent it to a friend, and when he had it I was desperate for it back. I love this show, its Â£15 well spent. I can't wait for the second series to come out on DVD, I'll buy that as soon as it comes out. Buy this DVD and your life will be complete.
