Customer Review

on 4 November 2008
It could have been an hilarious series, but sadly it wasn't. The writing is poor - each joke (to use the term so loosely it hardly applies) can be seen coming long before the punchline is delivered, the problem being that it's either signposted far too obviously or spelled out tediously. Like most British comedies these days - or, more precisely, BBC and ITV comedies: Channel Four seem to do them so much better - we the audience are not given the chance to work out why something is humorous (see also "My Family" and the current failure of fun whose title escapes me but which stars Nicholas Lyndhurst and Celia Imrie) - the actors hamfistedly explain to us by way of throwaway and completely unnecessary lines.
Adrian Edmonson doesn't even look like he's trying to portray a believable character which, given that he wrote the such a predictable script, would be an impossible task anyway - it must have been the easiest fee earned for an acting / writing job ever.
Save your money unless you want to weep tears of disappointment.
