According to Bex

Recorded this the other night, and watched it this morning. It's a BBC sitcom starring Jessica Stephenson, who played Daisy in Spaced.

It's the usual case of a single person looking for love. The gimmick is that, sometimes, the scenes are analysed in retrospect in a "video diary" sort of way (a little like the Big Brother booths, or Susanna and Trinny's video cams). And then these are followed by additional commentary, from the Common Person on the street.

It's mildly amusing. It's not very funny. One of the actors can't act. At all.

But the biggest problem is the laugh track. If that wasn't there, you could use your judgement and smile, smirk, laugh, or whatever seems appropriate. Instead, there're riotous bursts of aggravating laughter that just make you think, "No, it's not that funny."

Stephenson's also "prettier" in this (i.e. made-up to appear less plebby), which I found interesting.
