Storyline

Trivia

Although there were numerous characters in the opening credits, Riki Lindhome and Natasha Leggero were the only cast members of the show during season one. Everyone else had contractual agreements to shoot other shows, and as a consequence, much of the first season was shot out of sequence to accommodate such busy schedules. See more »

Not for everyone...but I really like it.
5 January 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"Another Period" is a strange reality show-like creation for The Comedy Channel. And, while I really enjoy it, I think it's a hard sell for its audience...which surprises me since normally developing a large audience is a must for television shows. The only way it would make sense is that someone in charge there loves the show and doesn't mind that it isn't all that popular. Considering they also make "Drunk History", this would make sense.

As for the show, it's a faux reality show that follows the most worthless mega-rich family of the Edwardian era...the Bellacourts. They are the embodiment of everything rotten in the worst of the worst wealthy plutocrats. Every vice, every possible instance of selfishness and every chance the show can take to expose them for the worthless human beings they are...that's pretty much the show. And, it does this with a nice attention to historical details...something that history lovers, like myself, can appreciate. Well worth seeing and there is certainly nothing like it.

FYI--The show is EXTREMELY adult at times. Many crude moments...too many for the kids.
