Just about perfect
31 August 2002 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

This six-part Masterpiece Theatre comedy (!) is just about perfect.

The actors are extremely well cast and the roles are written with more depth than you see in 98-percent of all feature films. With each episode, the laughs come easier, the situations intensify and the characters become more and more like family. The emotional high point comes on a throwaway line, and it is perfect. Hoskins and de la Tour should have worked together many, many more times; they make a wonderful comedy team. A crime that this series isn't available on video: come on, PBS! I'll even pledge a membership if you make a FLICKERS DVD or VHS the premium! Hurry up, before my 20-year-old EP copy disintegrates!
