This is defiantly from the early days, and is often over looked. It has some classic lines in it and it's graced by some great actors and guest stars. For those who aren't in the know, there are four women of very different back grounds sharing an apartment and chaos regions supreme. Jenifer Saunders (Jennifer Marsh) is on top form as ever and Dawn French (Amanda Ripley) plays her part well and provides much of the energy.
Amanda Ripley has a little problem. She's managed to find herself a flat, but there's just not as much money in being a ultra-feminist protester as there used to be. So, she's had to open up her new apartment to several sub-lets. They include Shelley DuPont , Jennifer Marsh and Candice Valentine . DuPont is an unnervingly annoying American actress who just doesn't have a clue about her craft. Marsh is a rather slow childhood friend of Ripley's and she has been taken in almost as a charity rather than out of financial need. Valentine is just a flirt who just needs a place to lay her head when its not on some strange man's pillow (needless to say this goes over well with the feminist views held by Ripley). Together they get themselves into a whole mess of trouble.
If you are reading this chances are you'll know the series (short as it was), it's not Vicar of Dibley, Ab.Fab, but worth a look! This has been long awaited and myself have ran periodic searches for these DVD's and I for one am very pleased to finally own them (especially at Amazon's prices!!!!
