Lovely!
21 October 2003 | by (.: Fiendish Writings in the Dark :.) – See all my reviews

I never read these books, but I caught the broadcast on PBS here in the States, with my mother.

My mother fostered in me, a love of the dry British wit. Mapp and Lucia was required viewing, as far as she was concerned, and I must admit, that the beauty (and ugliness) of this series has long since stuck with me.

I found the characters to be endearing, well developed, and hysterically funny. We laughed until there were tears literally streaming down our faces. This was an excellent BBS series which is wholly enjoyable by all with an open mind.

If you have any appreciation of dry and/or dark humor, this series definitely rates a good watching.

This delightful series rates a 7.8/10 on the "TV" scale, from...

the Fiend :.
