It was not good.
16 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

It was without doubt one of the worst shows English TV produced in 1988. It was predicated on a fantastic idea. Namely, the BBC giving Emma Thompson a six week half hour slot to do whatever she wished. Writer, producer, star. The results were appalling. What ever credit Thompson had with TV critics evaporated very quickly. The smugness, the self satisfaction, the pretentiousness, the ego run riot. It limped to the end of Its run, the BBC never recommissioned a second season, and she never did It again. Even now watching clips of It on YouTube. It makes me wonder If you can take someone that pretentious, that narcissistic, that ego-centric seriously? Me? I'd rather not.
