Quite literally, one of the most underrated comedies most people have never heard of, which is a real shame.
Due to severe oversight by the BBC, this slice of pure comedy gold was scheduled all over the place on BBC3, then had a very late night run on BBC2.
If ever there was a show ripe for rediscovery or just plain discovery, it is this one, it plays like a classic sitcom setup, two guys in a flat, and then not very much happens, yet it does, taking the minutie of every day life and examining it to within an inch of it's life, to bizarre degrees 'the man with a pony in his bedroom', 'Vince drinking his way through a flask of tomato soup just to make a sale of the flask at a car boot sale in a multi storey car park'
Every episode is dotted with lovely little vignettes from within other flats within the block, 'the man making a relaxtion in his bedroom who flies into a rage whenever a member of his family interrupts him.."I'm trying to make !A RELAXTION TAPE!" which is just one of the many quotable lines and memorable scenes from a single episode.
There is not a poor episode in either of it's two series and is clearly put together with a lot of time and effort and more importantly, affection for both the main characters.
It really is worth checking out.
