BRILLIANT
11 October 2000 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

This series is destined to become a classic. It is outstanding in every way. The writing has intelligence and true insight. It's loaded with witty references to the American Pop Culture wasteland and to the broken dreams at the bottom of the Hollywood foodchain. The performances, especially Ullman's, are flawless. An exceptional supporting cast. Only HBO and British television can produce comedy of this calibre.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
