It was really shit wasn't it even though I watched it as I was a college student - as in and English college student, ie 6th form - at the time of its transmission. Sean Hughes was quite shit and I spent every episode thinking, "who does he know, who is his Dad". I don't mind him as a person but what a dated turd of a student programme.
Also can you call stop going 'sean, I don't like the adverts', 'Sean, why aren't the foals painting the spare bedroom this weekend' - he's not your friend you know. Its bizniz innit??
