Synopsis: This sitcom follows the comic lives of three misfits who share a London flat. Mandy is a beautiful blonde airhead who can't hold down a job or control her sex drive. She shares a flat with Matthew, a very outgoing person who has a fear of going outside and Martin a timid red-head who can't get a woman. BSG Review: "Game On" managed to quickly build up a strong fan base however finished after just three series as the writers didn't want to work on a fourth. The programme has since faded into oblivion. This sitcom wasn't every bodies cup of tea - it featured controversial dialogue, predictable one-liners and some would say shallow character development.
