    This show caught me off guard because I saw by accident on Hulu. I find a lot programs that are "funny" not so funny at all. Humor is very personal and so I stumbled across this show I was so excited!! I understand it and it speaks my language of humor very well. Needless to say, as far as I am concerned this is a brilliantly, hilariously well written and acted show. I enjoyed every second of each episode and sincerely hungry for more after the last episode. Who would have thought the writers behind the show are the 2 main characters and they are actual friends?! This explains the incredible chemistry that is translated. Cannot wait for season 2. Expand

    Love this series! The characters are likable and funny! It hasn't got the best story but it doesn't need to be because the characters are the best thing about this series! Love it 10/10!

    One of the most flawless examples of comedy and action working seamlessly together. The humour is undeniably British, filled with sarcasm, sharp wit, and some really deep satirisation of mainstream media, governmental employees and the small town culture. It's hilarious though, right from the outset, and maintains it really carefully and cleverly, so that each individual episode feels full and funny of it's own accord, while slowly adding up to a fantastic finale.

    Renewed for a second season, this incredibly enjoyable 6 episodes of television couldn't been seen by enough people.

    A slight, bright, British caper. [16 Dec 2013]

    The ambitious series finds a nice balance of slapstick and suspense. You might feel cheated if you're expecting the usual setup and joke, setup and joke format of many American sitcoms, but there are plenty of surprises and laughs.

    Just as adept with suspense as slapstick humor, it's both a piss-take of action dramas and a strong action drama in its own right.
