    Caught this on catch up, a new series by Paul Abbot.
    Thought it was quite funny and also a bit dark in places, I recommend you give it a go.
    Here is the trailer.



    Next show is Tuesday 12th May.

    My computer's a bit temperamental when it comes to using 4OD, but I shall try!

    The show seems like it might be a decent Scott & Bailey replacement, until that comes back (if it ever does).

    Oh Scott & Bailey! How I love thee :D

    I fund 4OD a bit temperamental too. Works best using Firefox on my computer.

    The first and last episodes are the first time in ages we've both sat in the sofa and covered our eyes.

    Very good series and a really interesting set of stories.

    That was a pretty bloody good ending. Really enjoyed the series.

    I think they said there was another series coming at the end? Not sure it can be as good given the ending, but there's certainly scope to do something pretty good again.

    Managed to watch it before leaving for work. We've really enjoyed this and are looking forward to how it builds in the second series next year.
    Excellent writing, brilliant casting.

    Jackobi swallows anything

    I don't know, Paul Abbot kept Shameless interesting through 11 series, although it did flag a bit after the 10th, Shameless US is brilliant too. Just as his story lines seem to be falling a bit flat, he reinvigorates them with unexpected twists.

    I agree with Sprocket., No Offence was excellently written and had a brilliant cast, Will Mellor was great in Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps too. Written by Paul Abbot and featuring Will Mellor (as well as a lot of other brilliant actors) it was bound to be a quality show, and I wasn't disappointed.

    Sometimes when I look at him I can't help remembering the episode where he got really fat and then wanked himself thin in one session.
