Excellent series. And John Cleese is an excellent host.
2 December 2006 | by LookmateySee all my reviews

I loved this series. It appears as if John Cleese is not only a great comedian, but a great narrator and writer, he can be good in so many areas, that I don't hesitate when I say he did a great job here. The subject is highly interesting, I learnt a lot of things about the human face that I never ever imagined before, and it is inspiring for human contact(just watch for the final comments about the internet on the first episode). Just for that I would watch it, but remember you also have the great performances of Cleese and Liz Hurley amongst others, and great chances for a good laugh. It's a real treat. And if you are a fan of Cleese, this is of course, a must see.
