Bit of an oddity this one. writer Gary Janetti is an alumi of Family Guy and Will and Grace who litters his script with bitchy one liners and the odd out of place vulgarity. Director Ed Bye however is a product of british audience shows [Red Dwarf, My Family amongst others]. These are styles which clash somewhat and affects the end product, feeling american but curiously old fashioned at the same time. The show seems to have suffered from a tight budet with a lack of location filming and supporting cast.
But it also has a lot of merits. Jacobi and McKellen kinda know the material is beneth them but are clearly enjoying each others company and having fun. Francis De La Tour [Rising Damp] gets some good laughs even if her characters not that well developed. Iwan Rheon [Games of Thrones] fits in surprisingly well. Marcia Warren proably gets the best laughts with her scatty character.
Best episode is no. 5, where the budget restriction is used to the stories advantage with Alexandra Roach providing a great guest performance lacking previously and Mckellen and Jacobi's insults hiting the target.
Overall, it's nothing very special and quite forgettable, but if you turn your brain off, your probably have a good time.

A new comedy gem. They are so mean and camp but obviously love each other dearly. Fantastic acted by the two Sirs! Loved it.

A master class in situation comedy from Sirs Derek and Ian and every member of this superb cast. I have gay friends who have been in a monogamous relationship for 45 years and this is their favourite programme. I hope there will be many more series of this brilliantly written, produced and performed instant classic.
