Brilliant, Yet Viciously DARK British Satire....Talk About Character Assassination Most "VYLE"!
24 October 2013 | by (Pasto, Colombia) – See all my reviews

It's fair to say that we Americans fall into 2 categories: Those who don't particularly care for British humor; and those whose appetite for it is simply insatiable! Would you care to venture a guess as to where I fit in?

Yes, from the country that gave us "Monty Python's Flying Circus" and "Benny Hill", we present a veritable panacea for that pandemic feeling Americans have been grumbling about in a chorus that has grown constantly more vociferous in recent years: "American comedies just don't seem to be that funny anymore!" Unless you find chronic flatulence amusing, because a rather entrenched "I never met a fart joke I didn't like!" mentality, more often than not, prevails.

Mr. and Mrs. John Q. Public, we proudly present, Ms. Vivienne Vyle! You'll love her one minute, loathe her the next! She's one TV talk-show host who can instantly discern crass, exploitative, manipulative, ratings-driven interview situations from serious, balanced, well-grounded, the-truth-must-be-served interviews! And, of course, never flinches one single instant....... in taking the cheap shot! In going for the jugular!

6 episodes of 29 minutes each (Unlike their American counterparts, here the half hour shows are just that! Sure beats 22 minute ones!) Usually I can't countenance the little explanatory blurbs associated with each title, because they're, more often than not, so far from the truth. In this case, it's decidedly spot on! The "humour" (British spelling, mind you!) is so wretchedly invective, so perfunctorily twisted, at times you won't know whether to laugh or to cry! The interaction between Jennifer Saunders and Miranda Richardson is fiendishly inspired! The only "Vyle" misfire was during a turn-on-a-dime effort to switch gears into heavy drama. Fortunately, this ill-fated effort was a scant 10 or 12 minutes, so not difficult to overlook! 9*STARS*....ENJOY/DISFRUTELA!

Any comments, questions or observations, in English or Español, are most welcome!
