Sitcom about the relationship between elderly delinquents Tom and Roy, who live together. Tom and Roy believe there is life in the old dog yet - but it might just need a kick.

Tom is a baby boomer who has never done anything much with his life, while Roy is a suburban pensioner who harbours the illusion that he may be one of the country's leading intellectuals. When Roy's wife left him, Tom moved in and, together, they are determined to go out in a blaze of glory.

The pair lust after sexy neighbour Sally. Meanwhile Tom has a dreary daughter called Amber.
