A Dunce Among Sit-Coms
6 September 2005 | by (Grim North) – See all my reviews

Oh dear, what a come-down. Yes, it's still half-smile, maybe a slight grin funny, but nowhere near the Frank Spencer-ness of "Brittas" or the genius of "Red Dwarf". To be fair, both those sit-coms, whilst favourites of this reviewer, ran long enough to encounter very bad patches, whereas (thankfully!) "Prince" lasted but 2 years. Chris Barrie displays his talent for accents with his "comedy Scouse footballer" voice here but the character is nowhere near as interesting as Brittas or Rimmer. I'd love to re-watch this soon, a DVD release would be welcome, but otherwise just a blip in the career of a talented comedian.
