Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan’s comedy in this series (first shown in 2010) looks so easy, you almost feel it’s cheating. It’s a semi-improvised road movie in which Coogan (or a fictionalised version of him) ropes Brydon (ditto) into a tour of northern restaurants he’s supposedly writing up for a Sunday newspaper. All they do is tease each other over expensive lunches, bicker a bit and do silly voices. How hard can that be? But after a while, you realise there’s more to the banter than meets the eye.
Steve Coogan is commissioned to review half a dozen restaurants for a Sunday newspaper and plans the trip with his American girlfriend - only to face the prospect of a week of meals-for-one after she dumps him. So Steve calls old friend Rob Brydon to accompany him, and the pair find themselves debating the big questions of life over a series of delightful dishes. Improvised comedy in which the stars play versions of themselves, directed by Michael Winterbottom.
