All eight episodes from the first series of the madcap sitcom. In 'Moving Out' Lee (Lee Evans) manages to destroy two flats and an estate agent's office. 'Sofa So Good' has Lee search for a missing ring. 'Swingers' sees our hero begin dating again. 'The House Guest' finds Stuart getting all inflated. 'Act of God' has Lee consider insurance. 'Fear of Flying' sees Lee try to come to terms with his flight problems. 'The Limo' finds the flexible one getting classy. And finally, in 'Parole', fears arise when Heather's dad gets out of the clinker.
After a string of successes on the big screen, So What Now marks the return of comedian Lee Evans to television and his first sitcom. Scripted by Evans himself, the show has an old-fashioned feel to it, recalling at times various comedy series of the 1970s. Evans' character, Lee, is a mere extension of his live performance persona--a rambling, accident-prone loser whose split from his wife forces him into a domestic situation with the slovenly Stuart (O'Donnell) and man-eating yuppie, Heather (Thomson). There is much of Michael Crawford's hapless Frank Spencer in Lee, especially in the visual set pieces that form the cornerstone of the show. Given his strong acting and writing pedigree, this has to be seen as a disappointment for Evans; the combination of weak script and less than inspiring performances mean that So What Now is only a sporadic success. --Phil Udell

Of course one of the characters is a hyper-ventilating thrown-out husband called Lee, at-times Frank-Spencerish, at times Norman-Wisdomish (these are both compliments), innocently causing trouble for his heavy-weight slob schoolfriend Stewart, and their new (desperate for a man - any man) landlady.
Sitcoms like this are prone to failures in jokes and scripts, this is no exception, but these are a very good trio, they do make some funny moments together, there are indeed many excellent moments in this series. There is also Lee Evans showing his many talents (not a euphemism), his frenetic vocalising, clowning, graceful athleticism and great comedy timing, not to mention the off-the-wall things only a great talent could come up with (opening the back-door to the house).
There are many moments of great hilarity in the eight episodes, some memorable sequences including the strip-club episode where Lee puts some money in the pole-dancers slip...!
The 8 episodes are housed on a double-sided dvd, whilst the other disc carries the extras, which include 30 minutes of hilarious out-takes from the series, and an excellent filmed biography and interviews of Mr Evans.
Personally, I don't like his stage shows for the language. There's no need for it, nor is it funny. But he has genuine great talent like some notable clowns and comedians of the past. This is a good series to show what he can do in other veins.
This is one of the most underatted Sitcoms of all time! It is hillarious, and shows Lee Evans as always at his very best. There are 8 episodes, that follow Lee trying to pick his life up after been kicked out by his wife.
There is plenty of physical comedy as well as verbal comedy in this fantastic traditional style comedy.
It's a bargain well worth owning, plus there is plenty of extras too. I only wish they'd wrote more!
