The best
19 September 2003 | by (Manitoba, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of the very best shows CBC has ever produced (they don't produce many shows by the way these days). It's interesting, political, the actors all have impeccable comedic timing and they have PETER KELEGHAN!!! Yummy :P Every episode is great.
