Good call Joe/Tom/Kris/Jules' Dad for catching this one. I didn't even know it had been released on this side of the drink. Saxondale is in league with Fawlty Towers, Alan Partridge and The Office in terms of top cringe-comedy from the Beeb ever. This has got cult written all over it. The first episode is an all time comedy classic. Americans just don't seem to know what to do with Steve Coogan (as it turns out "nothing" is the right answer - just let him write and perform his own stuff).
Brilliant. The morning makeup scene is pure genius.
