Fantastic British comedy! Massively underrated!
27 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have recently watched all three series of Duty Free and I have to say I wasn't disappointed! I found the characters to be hilarious, especially Robert! I really don't understand some of the negative reviews and I would recommend this to anyone who understands true comedy before political correctness came into the matter! Robert in particular conforms to most stereotypes calling the French frogs and insulting the Germans with every opportunity he gets, not forgetting the Russians and any other country that lost in the war! But I think that every body knows that its not really intended to offend anybody and is said purely for a laugh (having said that, I might not recommend this program to any English speaking Germans!)
