Not unlike Monty Python and Benny Hill, this short-lived, fast-paced sketch comedy show, a coproduction between US' Cinemax and UK's Channel 4, features numerous, mostly unrelated sketches performed by mixed UK and US cast.
Looking back this had a dream cast - Robbie Coltrane, Emma Thompson, Richard Wilson. And they were perfect in it. Even the supporting cast, particularly Maurice Roeves and Katy Murphy were fantastic. It was bright and funny, well written, well acted and the music was pretty good.
So of course it's been repeated (once?) and not available on DVD.
I remember loving this when it was first shown... and missing the last episode. And then it was repeated a couple of years later... and I missed the last episode. That it's not out on DVD yet is nothing short of criminal. Please... I'd like to see for myself just how it ends.
