Review

A befuddled love-sick beta male (Jim Howick’s Josh), flash boy Leon (Samuel Anderson), a guilt-ridden posho (Jonny Sweet) and Nick Helm’s ex-junkie Watto have just made a cool £246 million from a video game starring a cat. And apart from sending barbershop quartets to insult their enemies, these unusual entrepreneurs are not quite sure what to do next.

Starting with such a success story may not feel very British (don’t we like people struggle to become millionaires, Del-Boy style?). But the affable slackers will feel nicely familiar to UK audiences (or at least anyone who has ever seen a Simon Pegg film). And while this series (based on an Israeli original) doesn’t – yet – feel quite as quick-witted or subtle as a show like Silicon Valley, it definitely has start-up potential. The ensemble work well together and some of the set pieces carry genuine imaginative spark.

Summary

Following the sale of their company Idyl Hands and its hit mobile phone game Cat Factory, friends and business partners Josh, Leon, Watto and Ewan wake up to the realisation that they are now multimillionaires - but the company is almost immediately hit by a lawsuit. Comedy drama, starring Nick Helm, Jim Howick, Samuel Anderson and Jonny Sweet.
