Anyone see this? Anyone who works in a Job Centre or signs on see this?

OK it's a comedy, and not supposed to be real life. But a missed opportunity to be accurate and satirical.

I thought it was awful. Seemed to be trying to be like The Office and failing miserably.

Agree. Should have written 'OK it's a "comedy" hmm ' Heard a goodish review on Front Row, R4, which is why I gave it a go.

Oh heavens it was dire.

Mind you, I always thought that The Office was cringeworthy-well, the RG character.

It wasn't quite as bad as "Vicious" before it.

Oh I thought that that was awful as well.

Both as bad as each other imo.

I liked it - I work with people like them!

Dh and I like it. Think the characters are very realistic.
