Awful, truly Awful
10 July 2008 | by alex-1928See all my reviews

I was just lying on my bed thinking of things to do today and I remembered this Sitcom. I watched several episodes not because it was in the least bit funny, I just could not believe how bad it was! Chris Barrie was truly brilliant in red Dwarf and Brittas, this really must have been the low point of his career, not one scene had the slightest glimmer of humor. This sitcom is best buried forever or used to torture criminals or something. The only TV series I can compare it with was a series called "Trouble and Strife". That is the only other one I can ever think of totally devoid of any humor. That was canned after one series also.
