    Am only as far as episode 2 but my my... Crook has gone up ten fold in my estimations.

    Just read that he directed and wrote it. It's exquisite isn't it? The writing is sooo sharp and great performances all round.

    After watching episode one, I was enjoying it but didn't expect full LOL... ep 2 was getting momentum... then that opener to 3... :D

    Oh and yeah his girlfriend is lovely.

    Lance is the real star character though, for me at least. The scenes in farm packing yard - esp the University Challenge bit... marvellous.

    (So yeah, I binged the lot in a single session tonight. Fab.)

    To find comedy redemption after starring in Sex lives of a potato man is a tall order, take a bow Mr Crook. Better than Gervais and Merchant's recent sit-com efforts as well.

    A couple of years ago I was in a diabetic coma. This was more fun than Gervais and Merchant's recent sitcom efforts, to be fair

    Apparently the Yanks are going gooey over the comic genius that is Derek. Perhaps they're missing Robin Williams movies.

    I have since changed my mind on this and am enjoying it.
