the best all-in-one comedy!
17 July 2002 | by (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) – See all my reviews

This has to be the best comedy ever created on earth. It features everything descriptive of the world. Of the people that make it, of their relations with each other, and of their diversity, with English as their main component for unity. I remember having good laughs with this series when it was re-run on Malaysia's RTM Channel 2 for the umpteenth time between 1993-1994. It was also the programme that made me love the English language even more. No other comedy seem to catch the wit this one had.
