Him & Her Series 1

Rudderless twentysomethings Becky and Steve have set their sights so low that the slackest of Gen X slackers would be hard-pressed to compete with their lack of ambition - all they want to do is get high, bludge off work and have sex, and in this and several like regards the pair succeed admirably. Aided and abetted by a revolving door supporting cast of friends, siblings and parents, their earthy shenanigans frequently ring true and are guaranteed to raise a titter or twelve. 

Produced by Big Talk, the outfit responsible for such comedic juggernauts as Black Books, Spaced, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, Him & Her has charmed audiences in its native UK with its crass warts-and-all (perhaps farts-and-all would be a more appropriate term) evocation of modern day de facto life, and makes its Region 4 debut courtesy of Madman in a handsome 2-disc set positively brimming with bonus features. 

Whilst perhaps not as sharp as some of its stablemates in terms of writing or characterisation (it aims far broader, for one thing), this bawdy, oftentimes wilfully lewd comedy engenders an easy affection thanks in large part to the palpable on-screen chemistry shared by its two likable leads.  Many of the situations and indeed entire swathes of conversation will be instantly recognisable to those of a similar age group to Becky and Steve, the latter of whom is played to gormless perfection by Being Humanís Russell Tovey, and if not entirely earth-shattering in terms of writing or setup the series nonetheless comprises a clever, fun and occasionally filthy sitcom that seems certain to find as wide an audience on these shores as it did in its homeland.
