Caught this on TV one night without expectation, and I loved it. I thought the writing was sharp and clever. The main couple, Matt and Elizabeth were dynamic characters who I could really empathise with, and functioned well as a grounding viewpoint for the ridiculous behaviour of other characters, helping along the feeling of natural comedy. Tom Hollander was bastardishly sweet as Leon. I wanted to murder him for behaving so selfishly, but felt genuine sympathy for the idiot. He was brilliant and bloody funny. And I always get warm fuzzies whenever I see Anthony Head in anything, even if it is as an arseholeish parody of himself. Congrats to all involved, I hope there's more on the way. To everyone else - give it a try, I don't think you'll regret it.
