Storyline

British newscaster Walter Blunt comes to Los Angeles, intent on conquering the world of American cable television. Through the platform of a nightly interview show, Blunt is on a mission to impart his wisdom and guidance on how Americans should live, think, and behave. Unfortunately, Blunt is constantly harassed by interfering network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, and his numerous ex-wives and children. Blunt must now deal with the fallout from his well-intended but misguided actions, both on and off the air, with only an alcoholic manservant at his side.

A brilliant performance - great show
1 February 2017 | by steverichmSee all my reviews

This is a brilliant show , mad and funny but deals with important issues , real issues in life

The great cast makes this show into something completely different and i love it i wish more producers and production companies would have the balls to create content like this. i would recommend anyone who hasn't watched it to do so. Walter Blunt , played by our loved Patrick Stewart is simply an ingenious character , morbid and happy at the same time full of life and advice and yet childish and playful the supporting cast is also an assortment of "weirdos" who make the show come to life with their over the top issues and loyalty to the main character

as i usually don't find good things to write about , this review is by far a oddity for me ( i also don't write under this name) but here it is

One of the best shows on TV
