Now, I have nothing at all against either Romance or Comedy - the world needs more of both of these - but when you put the two together you usually end up with the kind of braindead chick-flick mush that infests suburban multiplex cinemas.
This however succeeds where the usual Hugh Grant romcomathon fails for a number of reasons :-
- Likeable characters
- Clever genuinely funny dialogue
- A number of excellent acting performances
- No Hugh Grant
There is to be a new series on BBC3 this month and judging by the preview clips online, it's going to be well worth watching.
