    Ive had this on dvd for a while now and am doing a review cos no one else has done one. The picture quality is not very good on this disc, watchable and averagish. Lots of grain and lack of sharpness. But we can allow them that cos it was/is a tv series.

    The sound also is a 2 channel stereo which is dismal for a dvd release but its ok as we have already specified that its a tv series and was shot on film. These 2 items although they are not fantastic, its good that these do not spoil the viewing of the series.

    For extras we dont get much but again its a low budget tv series. There is a photo gallery and section called matthews moments which links to matthews most hilarious moments in the series.

    Lets get on to the main bit- the content itself is fantastic. Absolutely hilarious. Every episode is full of laughs. Its about 3 flatmates. 1 of them talks like a tough guy but cannot leave the flat because he is scared of reality. Another guy has alot of heart but is a loser at love because he is a big softy. The female member wants to be a career woman and be respected but ends up sleeping with almost everyone she meets. I like to think of this as the British version of FRIENDS with added british hardness. This is a brilliant comedy. Its not that expensive. I picked mine up for about £11 and for that you get 3 hours worth of laughter. Cant wait for series 2 on dvd.
