Great Show
23 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know why this is not on DVD yet. But, I taped it when it was on TV and I've enjoyed watching this show over and over again.

The cast is great and Jim Broadbent (Peter Duffley) does a remarkable job of playing the daft manager. Claire Skinner (Susan Harvey) is great and Daniel Flynn (David, I never really caught his last name)does a good job. There are laughs everywhere -- from the situation to the dialogue.

Let me just put it this way: I won't watch Fawlty Towers or Britta's Empire re-runs. I wlll watch the Peter Principle over and over and over again.
