Not bad for A Cnut
3 August 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This show got me more interested in British comedy. To my delight it is far funnier than the American trash I have grown up with (excluding Frasier). Since this I have seen The Office, Absolutely Fabulous, Black Books and Keeping up Appearances. They are all great but have not matched the Tall yardstick of Believe Nothing.

The characters are very likable in their dysfunctional interaction with each other. I really enjoy Adonis's dominance and arrogance and Albumens willingness to serve his "Master". Of course Dr. Awkward is everything her name lives up to as is Adonis Cnut, the quadruple professor.

I am optimistic that the show will make a comeback. I will get bored of watching the same 6 episodes repeatedly in about 10 years.
