  • a new kind of relationship comedy

    By Grumpyclown, Jan 17, 2013

  • This is one of the worst series I ever had a chance to watch. A complete waste of time. Rude people. No character, no charisma. Not funny at all. Complete rubbish. I do not understand how this was ever nominated for any award. A shame for British Tv.
