I saw this on a aeroplane at midnight and my laughs probably woke up all of the other passengers. I'd heard of the show but never watched it on TV. I didn't even know it was actually be a comedy. But almost as soon as it started I knew that it was definitely a comedy and a bloody funny one at that. Now that I've seen just one episode I deeply regret not watching it sooner it's witty, satirical and brilliant laugh out loud moments, hilarious. It will definitely make you laugh (unless you happen to be the prime minister). The other characters, luckily, are not based on Tony Blairs actual family so all of the actors brings their own funny way about them, and for any young boys who might watch this show, his daughter's hot!
