Funny, well written, quirky
27 June 2019 | by robertemeraldSee all my reviews

I found season 2 of this series at the op shop. I lucked out. Best comedy since Wilfred (Australian version). Similar sort of formula, where great ideas turn out to be fraught with pitfalls, but through perseverance, and maybe serendipity, some sort of whacky solutions (or at least neutrality) are found. Features great adult relationships, great character performances, and some really classic lines. There's some really enjoyable 'deadpan' narration too. All in all, I thought it a high quality comedy by a high quality cast.
