These are the kinds of comedy programs that would never survive in America. It's a shame...America always thinks it has the last word on everything, doesn't it? Not on comedy or actors - that's for sure. This program is a tribute to the slew of wonderful programs which the UK and the BBC crank out with such style.

I can't wait to see these episodes on DVD.
