29 December 1999 | ajrfx
Gentle but satirical take on 90's nostalgia for the 60's
We expected a lot from Arthur Matthews(Father Ted) and got a show that nearly works on every level.The characters are all likeable and time has been spent developing them, but as with so many sitcoms these days,the writing lets the series down.The best episodes are "Hairy Hippies" and the one with Eleanor Bron(!),the rest are patchy.The performances are great and keep the show together.Simon Pegg is great as the deluded,sexually repressed and incredibly naive Ray,whilst Sally Philips is hilarious as his pseudo-feminist on/off girlfriend Jill.The episode where she grows a beard to compete with men was very funny.She also manages to keep a manic stare going throughout the series which never changes ,regardless of what emotion she's feeling at the time.My favourite is Julian Rhynd-Tutt's portrayl of Alex, Ray's voice of reason and often bewildered bystander to the bizarre events taking place around him.His delivery is incredibly dry and keeps perfect comic timing. If we get a second series,please rewrite the scripts until they work!
