Mad & Very funny!
23 December 2001 | by (Manchester, England) – See all my reviews

This is probably in my favourite top 3 sitcoms from the 1990's.

The character of Gordon Brittas played by the wonderful Chris Barrie is probably one of the best sitcom characters of all-time.

Anyone who likes British comedy but has yet to see this series, i'd recommend they seek this out because it is brilliant (virtually every episode)!

i'd love to see the cast & writers return for a new series.

Chris Barrie is probably more famous for playing Rimmer in "Red Drawf" but the Brittas Empire is his best work in my opinion.

Each episode is totally mad & far from boring!
