BSG Review:

Dark and weird with a strong soap-like plot this series attracted a cult following however for the majority Vic and Bob's series was just not very funny. Despite the all-star cast the programme embarrassingly achieved poor ratings for the BBC - both on BBC3 and BBC2 - it is unlikely to return.
