'Vicious' is a comedy series featuring ageing partners, Freddie (Ian McKellen) and Stuart (Derek Jacobi), two gay men who have lived together in a small Covent Garden flat for the past 50 years. Their lives now mainly consist of reading books, walking their dog and arguing with one another.

Vicious brought me backRating: 1 likes, 1 dislikes

I grew up on all those old sitcoms from the 1980s. While the 1980s was not an era to vaunt a homosexual couple to the rank of stardom, our society has grown up a bit. This first episode brought back the feel and the joy of the sitcom, through the funny of the grouchy possible only through bickering old life mates. Vicious is well worth watching. Read more
