Obvious comedy is obviously not funny
on 27 January 2005
I am sorry to deliver such a negative review of this set but I found all 19 episodes repetitive and boring. The series relies too much on cheap jokes, torrents of swear words and continueous sexual references that are a) mot funny b) stupid c) been done to death before. The characters, although there storylines progress, are simple, boring and one dimensional. Other people have said that this series if frigtheningly true to life, but how many people do you know who have spent scratch fard winnings on a bouncy castle and a strange Bungle bear? How many friends have you got who'd tamper with your criminal records and get you shot for producing a Crunchie? Dull obvious comedy, with a loud annoying laughter track and no depth at all. If you like comedy then try The Office, Phoenix Nights, Black Books, Coupling, Frasier or Spaced. Now they are clever, witty and actually funny. Give this a miss.
