i've been looking for a british serial that starts like this:
there's a woman who looks for an appartment after a breakup but doesnt have enough money to rent one on her own, and a man who also doesnt have enough money to rent one on his own.
so they get together and they rent an appartment.
anyone knows the name of this serial?
i've only seen the first episode in a friend's house and i forget the name.
it looked really funny.
muchas gracias:cool:

some more info: the appartment they rent is of a "crazy" landlord lady and there are "crazy" neighboors.
oh yeah: and the man is a cartoon maker.

At first, I thought Man About the House, but nope - he's a chef. Then I thought Threads but that's probably less funny than you're looking for.

Is it contemporary, or is it old?

It's Spaced, with Simon Pegg (Scotty out of newest Star Trek) and Jessica Hynes.

One of the funniest shows we've produced in many years. I recommend anyone who hasn't seen it hunts out the DVDs.

Mostly the same writing/directing team that did Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. And it's in that vein.

Spaced is very funny. They showed it for a short while on BBC America a few years ago.

Spaced is probably the best comedy series I've ever seen.

It's Bosom Buddies, with Tom Hanks, but there are two guys and a girl.
