Al Murray is a genius, not forgetting Richard Herring.
This must be the only time I missed seeing a classic on the box first time round as we did not have Sky TV. Yes! The worlds greatest Sit Com was shown on Sky first outing, nearly 10 years ago. The good eggs they are recently shown a re run. I was never sure if I had missed any episodes and on first viewing I knew I must have every show on DVD anyhow, which this DVD provides, I think.
Al Murray aka 'our Alston', is the one person on this planet who will save the failing Pub Trade single handedly.
If I had my way, I would make it compulsory for everybody on this planet to sit down and watch this work of genius, fair enough, the guys would be allowed refreshments, Ale and the Ladies, fruit based drinks and free crisps as long as it don't interfere with the TV viewing else barred from the house.
I am searching Amazon for the purpose of buying a blazer, white shirt with pub logo, tie, grey trousers and off to the barbour for a number 1.
Please make some more shows Al. Looking forward to seeing you on the box again.
Anyone wanting to send a friend or to buy for themselves a funny, this is it. The fact it was on Sky, there will be millions of tv viewers out there that don't realise this show ever existed and will love it and never tire of it.
Hope you all love it as much as I do and if you do, buy a copy for a friend. They will be forever grateful to you.
