Definitely "not going out" when this is on the box
23 October 2006 | by stephenclaytonSee all my reviews

A refreshing comedy full of wit and one liners that could only be delivered by Lee Mack and Tim Vine (both ex-the sketch show).

A Californian (Kate) - landlady to Lee and ex-girlfriend of Tim who makes veggie food nobody likes, a Northerner (Lee) - part-time, odd jobbing, always joking, non rent paying lodger, and a Southerner (Tim)- good job, Kates ex-boyfriend, mate of Lee, combine their talents to make an excellent comedy with loads of potential.

3 episodes so far and it just keeps getting funnier, although there appears to be a love interest developing between Kate and Lee it can only add to the laughter (provided it remains unrequited).

Friday nights will not be the same without it.

An absolute gem amongst todays mediocre Sit-Com's.

Hope there will be more than 1 series (only 6 episodes! What a crime).
