"My girlfriend brought this over a few weeks after we'd watched Hamlet 2. I kindof groaned because I felt like Hamlet 2 was stupid mainstream Scary Movie-type crap. Devoid of subtlety.
But Saxondale is really clever and fun, and has one of the best title sequences ever. Too bad they edited that part down for the second season.
I really like the concept of a hardcore roadie who toured with all of the rock greats, now in his 50s and having to deal with the realities of a 9-5 job and suburban malaise. The characters all have endearing quirks and interesting relationships. It's definitely a good change of pace from American sitcoms."

"Coogan has done it again, in this very original suburban comedy. The rock humor and how he flip-flops or changes his belief system whenever it suits him is outstanding. The episodes with Coogan as the mod/emo kid Keanu Reeves are especially funny. What an original show!!"
