Series 1 introduces Sam, a lazy HR officer, and Peter his equally indolent subject. The duo soon realise the skids are under them: Peter for lateness and abusive phone calls to clients and Sam for his over-relaxed attitude to errant staff members like Peter.
From Series 2 onwards, the duo are now retired. Peter, on a tiny pension, has moved into Sam's suburban home where the two continue to play out the curious behaviours developed over a lifetime in work.
Sam wins the lottery at one point, and later falls in love with a man called Ed.
