A British sitcom that was shown on ITV from 1985 to 1986, starring and written by French and Saunders, Ruby Wax and Tracey Ullman. Despite a low budget and poor critical reception, the series was a ratings success. The show focused on four female flatmates and their landlady. It was a female version of The Young Ones, two series of which were made in 1982 and 1984. French and Saunders had both appeared in it and, like most of its stars, were members of The Comic Strip group. The theme tune was written and performed by Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford from the British band Squeeze (with the cast singing the theme for the first series, and Tilbrook singing for the second).
