- 2 Seasons
Two North Londoners, Tim Bisley and Daisy Steiner, are faced with the difficult task of finding an apartment after being kicked out by their respective exes. The two twenty-somethings find themselves in an unexpected alliance to secure a cheap flat advertised for couples only. Madcap misadventures ensue when Tim and Daisy realize that the duo must share the flat with a group of oddball characters, including the slightly off landlady, while masquerading as a loving couple. Eventually, they all become a tight-knit bunch of misfits finding their way in the world, valiantly resisting the pressure to grow up and be normal. Simon Pegg plays Tim, a science fiction and comic book fanboy, along with his best friend, self-styled weapons expert, and eventual roommate, Mike, played by Nick Frost, are struggling comically to walk the line between childhood fun and adult responsibilities. Although Jessica Hynes' character, Daisy, parades as the level-headed voice of reason, she is usually found to be just as goofy as the rest.
