I recently watched the entire 13 episode run of Saxondale, a BBC sitcom starring Steve Coogan as the titular character. Tommy Saxondale is a middle aged, over the hill ex-roadie who now owns a pest control business but still attempts to live the rock and roll life style, but in reality he's just a dick with an anger management problem. Anyway, I don't have too much to say about this show, other than that it's absolutely hilarious and it's available for instant viewing on Netflix so if you can get online, you have no reason not to watch it. Steve Coogan's performance has to be seen to be believed, and I don't understand why this show hasn't gotten more acclaim or attention over on this side of the Atlantic.

Just watch it. You'll laugh, I guarantee it.

Here are a couple clips"

That Anger Management clip was friggin' gold. Was this show cancelled? The main character almost reminds of Jeff Bridges in the Big Lebowski

I dunno if it was cancelled. I honestly don't understand how BBC series work. I watched two seasons that spanned only a dozen or so episodes.

But, yeah, watch it. It's funny.

You're right, this was pretty funny. And I share your confusion with regards to the BBC. How many episodes was The Office, for example? Weren't there only, like, ten of them?
