Better than "Ideal"
Top Buzzer is an MTV sitcom about young people in a flat share, weed selling world. It's all quite light hearted and fun. The episode plots keep you watching and the humour is classic character based stuff as opposed to the Cheech and Chong element that the premise suggests. Stephen Graham is engaging as the main character, James Lance is James Lance and slightly grating in his middle class-ness, but it's well mocked in an episode with his parents visiting. Daniel Mays has a great turn as the idiot character Carlton. Surely the star though is the gruff, gay Scottish dealer (whose name I can't find...) He really sets the tense, daft tone of this series and ensures it's very solid comedy. It's not quite a classic, it can (surprisingly) get quite sugary and feels a tad sentimental in that episodes often end with a cosy everyone-laughing-on-the-sofa-together moment. So yea not award winning comedy but definitely worth watching.

This came on at the same time as "Ideal" on BBC3, both share pretty much the same premise and I have to say that this is better by a considerable margin. Ideal is fun in a darker way but Top Buzzer is both fun and funny. I doesn't seem to have been seen by many people which is a shame. Try and catch repeats, it's definitely worth it.
