Oh so sadly bad...watch "One Foot in the Grave" instead.
I had such high hopes for this show...one of the smartest, wittiest and darkly humorous shows in television history...this is not.
But "One Foot In the Grave" with Meldrews and Ms. Warbouys...is. How the two could come from the same concept is beyond me. Skip this show and go directly to ANY place you can catch the BBC original.
While "One Foot in the Grave" made you laugh, cry, reel in horror and generally enjoy quality British writing. Of course it may not be for the unwashed masses of the Americas (perhaps thats why BBC America hasn't played it yet? Of course they did manage to show the entire run of "Royale Family" so one has to wonder...).
