A great bit of fun no matter where you come from.....
28 October 2000 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

"Goodness Gracious Me" is a hilarious laugh. Full of short skits poking fun at Indians and Anglo-indians it still manages to be funny to those of us who don't fall into those categories. Certain characters make frequent appearances like Mr. Everything-is-India and Smeeta Smitten Shobiz Kitten.

If you enjoy the show, keep an eye out for the CD's or cassette of the radio show. Many of the same characters first appeared there.

I'd also recommend "Red Dwarf" and "Monty Python's Flying Circus"
