Very Good
2 February 2005 | by rob982000See all my reviews

From episode 1 I have been hocked, the story is excellent and the subtle humour makes for good TV. The excellent balance between plot and comedy is very well done; to be too excessive in one of the fields would destroy what the show is about, a mix. "The water is blue…" However I do agree that it will not meet with some tastes that enjoy the full on comedy experience like the works of Peter Kay. Looking round the net I have found that it has got good reviews and it is well worth a watch. However it is plot driven and thus should be watched from start to finish to get that just fried feel.

All in all Dave Spikey and Johnny Vegas have done me proud.

PS, the song is "Its Good News Week" by Hedgehoppers Anonymous:)
