Benidorm - Our Latest Comedy 'classic'

To all in this group I would advise them to look out for 'Benidorm'. It's just starting its third series over here in the UK and series 1 and 2 are out on DVD.

The premise is this: A group of disparate brits arrive at the infamous Spanish resort of Benidorm for their summer hols. (Benidorm is actually a loud, beer infested sweat-box that Brits who like to slum it have been visiting since the 70s).

The group includes a young married couple who have nothing in common, a homosexual couple, a family of 'chavs' who live from security handouts, their elderly mother who is sun-burned to deep chestnut, chainsmokes and drives around in a mobility chair because she is too lazy to walk, a couple of middle-aged Scottish swingers, a shy full-grown man (played by Jonny Vegas) who lives with his mother, and the amorous barman who works at the hotel.

It is THE funniest series we've had in a few years. You can even catch the latest episode here:
