I have somehow managed to sit through many of the episodes while my husband watched, and I can say that this is probably the worst bit of television I have seen. The American accents are horrendous, the acting insufferable, and the whole mood of the show nothing but largely untrue stereotypes and intolerance. What a complete waste of time. I can't understand any positive reviews of this show. Americans are portrayed as loud and obnoxious, given dialogue comprised entirely of the few characteristic "yankee-isms." It becomes very tiresome, very quickly. The British are all portrayed as small minded, backward yokels who have never travelled farther than the end of their road. I know it was not all peaches and cream at the time, but this is more like a cartoon... exaggerated to the point of pain.
