Re-watching the entire series run in 2019, via a summer showing on UKTV's Gold channel, the series stands up surprisingly well. The only elements that have really dated the series are; the casual smoking, some of the very controversial gag references, which even audibly offended the studio audience, and the huge catalogue of music playing nearly continuously throughout the series including the rarely repeated cringe-inducing flashback musical, although that was in Janet's head so can be explained away as "of its time".

There are three different versions of how Jonny and Janet got together. In the first series, Gaz states that Jonny left his previous girlfriend for Janet. In series 2, it's Janet who left her boyfriend, Andy, for Jonny. In the musical special, they are both single and meet in a nightclub. See more »

Bad acting and poor storylines make this a dull sitcom and i use the word sitcom very very lightly. What has happened to britain and the BBC? We used to produced the greatest sitcoms on the planet and now this is the best we can do? The jokes are poorly delivered and are just generally not funny. Its once again set around a group of friends (so alot of imagination has gone into the situation of the series) who don't really do alot except make crap jokes and sit around doing nothing. Thats probably why the BBC took it on because they could relate so well with the show.
I'm not a big fan of shows based around friends and families because the senario has been used a thousand times before. The jokes are always copied from one show to another and are very predictable.
Don't watch this show. Its not as enjoyable as two pints of lager would be with a packet of cheese and onion crisps but it shares the same qualities of what two pints of lager would look like if you were to bring them back up again.
