Simply Brilliant
24 February 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

For me, this is the funniest thing on television since Monty Python's Flying Circus. Every bit as smart and as funny. The second (?) episode (the one that begins with the "phobic" dog owner) from the second season is flawless. Every minute of it glitters. I only laugh as hard when I read or watch Oscar Wilde's _The Importance of Being Earnest_.
