I initially viewed this show one night on TV a few years ago because of Chris Barrie. Being a big Red Dwarf and Rimmer fan I had to give it a shot. I quickly fell in like with it and now have every episode on tape. Barrie steals the show as Gordon Brittas, as he should, but all the other characters are quite funny in their own ways. I too liked the relationship between Gordon and Laura and was disappointed it was dropped when the actress left the show. Even though Gordon is annoying and a walking disaster, you can't help but like and sympathize with him. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to laugh at a show that doesn't take itself too seriously.
