Doesn't fit the typical Britcom mold
12 January 2004 | by (Washington) – See all my reviews

...and perhaps it's not supposed to.

The typical Britcom is assumed to leave you weeping with laughter. But the difference between "Two's Company" and a show like "Fawlty Towers" or "Keeping Up Appearances" is the silly humor factor. "Two's Company" is humerous on a level that is much more toned down; the show definitely has the chuckle moments, but I don't see where one would be rolling on the floor laughing all the way through.

That's not to say that the show isn't good, though. Dorothy McNab (Elaine Stritch) is an American author living in London in the 1970s. She's known all over the world, she's wealthy, so naturally she would need a butler to handle the day to day living. She winds up hiring Robert (Donald Sinden), and before long the two are bickering like old friends. The show is about their warm yet feisty working relationship together. The best part of the show is the unique chemistry they share.

It took me awhile to warm up to this show, but now I watch it on a regular basis. No, it's no "Vicar of Dibley" or "Are You Being Served?", but it's a good show for a few laughs here and there. I recommend it if you're looking for something lighthearted.
