A perfect laid back easy comedy
31 October 2006 | by jez_broadwaySee all my reviews

Possibly one of the most underrated and finest comedies ever written. Fabulous cast, comprising mainly of misfits, dreamers and losers, who just gel together perfectly under the guidance of Sam and Dex. Some fantastic comedy moments such as the mix up with the music at Dex's funeral, with the theme tune from Minder blasting out instead of the theme tune from The Bodyguard. And Basils dates at the Golden Rickshaw are cringingly embarrassing. Plenty of touching moments too, the sadness that Sam feels due to his wife's Alzheimer's, and the sexual feelings he has for Reen. A superb understated piece of humour which lasted 3 series, probably enough before running out of steam and finishing on a high as all good comedies should do.
