OK so you shouldn't turn loved British film comedies into US TV sitcoms, but this works and works so well. Granted the whole plot of the film is squeezed into the first episode (not a great start really) but the relationship between the three lead actors is superbly written and acted, and Benjamin Stockham's performance as Marcus is a joy to watch.
Season 2 ,currently airing on NBC is nowhere near as good - I think that they're now running it of ideas, bit this set is highly recommended. It does need a multi region player to watch it but it's worth it.
