Great series - hope it gets repeated some day
5 September 2002 | by beckyizodSee all my reviews

This was a great series. I watched it on Channel 4 about 3 years ago, and am now gutted I didn't video it! Very sharp and funny, the boy-band cliches are milked, but in an endearing way, and there are some nice spins and occasional flights into the absurd that work very well. Top marks to Jo Whiley for the deadpan narration, I couldn't stand her before this, but she was quite a revelation!
