Comedy sketch show wrongly branded as sitcom
10 February 2007 | by mickdavies-1See all my reviews

I agree that some of the jokes are recycled by changing location/situation but many shows that are loved are similar eg Little Britain. These were the catchphrase ones ("I want.....a ******* BABY!") Why it was branded as 3x 30 something couples going about their lives I don't know. Yes many sketches had the actors playing couples but they swapped around. Loved the girlfriend not sure of her way, getting her & boyfriend to try a weegie board. Boyfriend manipulates result of TRYANAL. Or the girlfriend playing a DVD, in bed, of her in a porn film to her new boyfriend. "You do porn!!?" "Oh no, not now, anyway I've met you now my scrummy yummy bunny!" "How long ago was this?" "Oh a couple of weeks" "...and who's that second bloke...!!?" Shame only one series and prob wont ever be released on DVD.
