Mike Leigh’s Happy-Go-Lucky. “It’s not a feel-good comedy but rather a comedy that literally makes us feel good.”

Vicious-bad. Reminds me of when I was intensely drunk and wrapped up a review with this, "satisfies even if it doesn't fully sate".

By the way, Erik, what are the TV ratings for the program? I just can't imagine that anyone worth an ounce of frigging salt would bother to watch it.

After trying to get info directly from Nielsen (to no avail), the last report that came out said the ratings were down 21%. A number of markets dropped the show and the only reason it has any numbers at all is because its still in the big markets (Chicago, NY, LA, etc...)

The season would end in August. My guess is that it lasts that long and then they either retool or drop the show completely. 30 years to build it. One year with Lyons to destroy it forever.
