Sitcom about two bungling burglars who make a living lifting stuff from warehouses.

Neither Bex or Ollie are particularly ambitious or courageous, preferring instead to aim low and live comfortably rather than risk big and gain big. Although essentially criminals, the duo have a strong sense of morality and won't break into normal people's homes, or touch anything with deep sentimental value. They're also allergic to violence - they break out in cuts and bruises.

Bex has a steady girlfriend in Mel, whereas Ollie is somewhere in the top ten with Belinda. Each girlfriend has differing views about what their fellas do for a living and this can sometimes create problems, though at the end of the day both Mel and Belinda know what Tammy Wynette was banging on about when she sung Stand By Your Man.
