Another fabulous Simon Nye comedy
21 April 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I thought the show would be worse without Dick, the wonderfully smug and posh senior partner, but Is It Legal was great right to the end. I like the way Nye isn't afraid to make class jokes, which are pretty rude, but perfectly charming. Every character was a weird twist on an apparent stereotype, so they were all weird and funny and vulnerable and more complicated than they first appeared. But at the same time, the scripts were excellent, with genuinely great one-liners. This is some of the best comedy ever made.
