Trivia

There was going to be an episode titled "Elizabeth, Michael, and Marlon", based on an alleged road trip that Dame Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson, and Marlon Brando embarked on from New York City to Ohio in a rental car shortly after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The casting of Joseph Fiennes as Jackson drew controversy (even Paris Jackson commented on it angrily), so the episode was pulled from the schedule. See more »

everything english wit is about, even if it mainly deals with americans
16 August 2018 | by jjr-76474See all my reviews

This is a brilliant piece of television. I became a fan from episode one featuring bob dylan and an english suburbs plumber. It is well directed superlatively acted and, most of all, deliciously written. It will take your face on an exercise class of smiles, laughs, giggles, and hilarity bursts; your co-trainees: cary grant, bob geldorf, conan doyle, marilyn monroe, johnny cash, david bowie and many more... My personal favorite: Public enemy feat kev wells. Go for it i promise you'll enjoy it.
