Interesting how different viewers can have a completely different take on the same show. My friends and I watched this in the early 90's, when it was broadcast in California. It was our first introduction to Emma Thompson, Kenneth Branagh, Imelda Staunton, and the rest of the gang, and we thought it was hilarious! There's one skit I remember very clearly that had us rolling on the floor with laughter. We've been waiting for years for the tapes to become available here, alas, no luck so far. The show was written by Emma Thompson herself, who, as we all know, is not just brilliant, but very funny. She's not a bad tap-dancer either, as she proves in the titles. Absolutely recommend it to all Emma-Fans.
