Fabulous Show. Holds up well.
3 February 2004 | by (Kansas City) – See all my reviews

I LOVE this show. I saw it originally on PBS in the mid-eighties. At several years old, it was beyond ahead of anything on U.S. TV at the time. I found the first 3 episodes on a VHS tape through a store specializing in British things and found out that time has not taken anything from it. It's still a fantastic show. Put it on DVD and I'll buy it before the discs cool!! Hilarious, great characters, great plots.
