Great show and wit and application of sarcasm
24 April 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This show is both entertainment and social commentary. Although the entertainment industry is what is probably best known by the writers and it is more interesting than many other industries, the points made can be applied to many other industries. It is the one show that is both escape and educational. Of course, I also have the same sense of humor (hopefully as good but we will see) so I "get" these show from the start. The writing and cast are top notch.
