Rare Stroke of Genius
22 September 2009 | by shanizeSee all my reviews

This BBC3 comedy is one of the best things I've seen in a long time, and it takes a lot to make me laugh heartily. The writer, Dan Clarke is a diamond and his acting is both hilarious and flawless. The actress who played Abbey (in the first series) was poor although I can see that the character fit in well and looked the part. The main character really hits home to me and I'm guessing he does for a lot of people in their late 20s/ early 30's, especially non-students or ex-students.The new series is even funnier than the first so far with a slight cast switch around. Why isn't there more stuff like this on TV? Can't wait to see if there will be a third series! Here's prayin!
