Solid 4.

Great concept, well executed, like a modern British Police Squad in some ways I guess.

Not a 5 because there’s some weak bits.

One of the best sitcoms ever. Ludicrously high concept, completely daft, amazing attention to every silly detail like the incidental music, stuffed with very funny people. Absolutely up there with Alan Partridge for me.

it’s a 3, they might as well have just filmed the intro as the actual episodes add nothing

Just silly stuff like when Dean says goodbye after he’s hung up the phone absolutely does me.
