Now before i get started don't think i am biased towards Frank Skinner because he is from the same city as me.
I thought Shane wasn't a bad sitcom not brilliant and it wont be remembered as a classic but I thought it was a damn good attempt. Frank himself is not the greatest of actors but he tries his best and his great supporting cast covers up his lack of acting experience. The script was pretty good and and at times is very clever and witty. All in all i would rate it a 6.5/10 I would have gave it a seven but because the sitcom was on ITV (and we all know ITV's drab history of sitcoms eg 'Sam's Game 'Babes in the Wood') It spoils it just a little.
