Not Going Out series 1, 1 Feb. 2009
This is an excellent comedy series which has a fairly simple premise based on the relationship between the three main characters, but which excels because of the witty dialogue. If you thought the art of clever puns was dead - it's not! It's alive and well in this comedy. However, it's not just the great dialogue - there is also a lot of warmth here, especially the friendship between Lee Mack and Tim Vine. Be warned though - it's a different female lead than in series 2 and 3 - that did throw me a little (having missed the first series on TV) but actually the dynamics work well, although personally I prefer the actress in 2 and 3.
