You 2 owe me 3 hours of my life back.
I just watched the whole first season.
And my review is:
Nothing special, bordering on quite boring.
The only thing I liked was the cat.
Let me know when they make a special called '3 Hours of Just the Cat'.
Until then, I'm afraid it's a "meh" from me.
I see on Wikipedia that there's 10 seasons of it. Hardly good enough to warrant that.
And an aborted American version?
Right. That's it. I'm writing an angry letter to the Editor.
Stop stealing original British comedies & fucking them up by Americanizing them.
IT Crowd? Terrible. No wonder it never got past the pilot.
Fawlty Towers? Sacrilege
Man About the House, turned into Three's Company? Awful.
Fuck off & get your own ideas.
Rest of the World.
