A British comedy series following the misadventures of a small law firm. The staff includes such characters as the young and eager bumbler Colin, the old and timid bumbler Bob and the stern and unsympathetic office commander Stella. Leading this gang is the completely incompetent Dick Spackman, who breezes through life unaware that his employees can barely handle their own affairs, let alone their clients'. Written by

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.
