pretty bad, but..
17 June 2005 | by (That little place under the stairs.) – See all my reviews

A prince among men is not a good television show. The Brittas Empire is.

I think it's highly unfair to say that they are on the same level - the basic problem I found with A Prince Among Men was that it was exceedingly boring. I can sit through a lot of things, and I love British television - but I watched it for a solid 5 minutes, determined that because it had Chris Barrie in it, that it might get better - but it didn't. To be honest, I'm a little ashamed of our young Chris, but I guess you have to put bread on the table in between seasons of Red Dwarf. But The Brittas Empire on the other hand, as annoying as he is, keeps you on your toes and there it at least something going on. So, in short - I highly recommend against this show, but at least give The Brittas Empire a try, it's not as bad as the other fellow would have you to believe.
