Bittersweet comedy-drama about a buttoned-down man in crisis. It’s December 1969 and Jeremy Sloane is at the end of his rope – literally.

Most evenings are now spent down the pub, drowning his sorrows with childhood mates Ross, Reggie and Beans. But with a potential job opportunity on the horizon and the phone number of free-spirited American girl, Robin, following a chance encounter in a hardware shop – could Mr Sloane’s luck be about to change?

Awful acting and directing, from a superb cast! It must be the worst work by all of them. For that, the production team must be at fault. It could (and should) be a great, edgy, black comedy drama but instead it's slapstick comedy done badly. So over acted you'd think it was the first project of a drama school class. It's about as subtle and clever as GW Bush with a rocket launcher, although less entertaining!
I expected so much more from the cast and the reviews on iTunes and particularly IMBD which I usually trust. I'd strongly advise you give this one a miss, and at the least to buy only the first episode to see for yourself. The first 5 mins are excellent, then it goes so rapidly downhill by the end of e1 you'll wish you'd spent the time doing housework!
