User Reviews

Quite the most awfully compulsive hangover cure there is...
24 September 2001 | by dc-1See all my reviews

What better to restore faith in your own creative talent than to come home from work and watch terrible actors spouting hilariously trite lines in ever more ridiculous situations, all the while bearing in mind that a patronising 'yoof' message must be prevalent in every episode?

The worse the series becomes, the more compulsive it is to watch, if only because you can't believe what's going to come next...
