    This sly Britcom is like a C-SPAN spin-off of... The Office. [12 May 2006, p.75]
  2. Think of "The Office," "Larry Sanders," "Spin City" and "Yes Minister" rolled into one delirious stew.
  3. A wonderful, brilliantly brutal, scathing look at British politics.

    This is, in my estimation, the funniest show of all time. And one need not be from the UK to appreciate the political in-humor. GeneralThis is, in my estimation, the funniest show of all time. And one need not be from the UK to appreciate the political in-humor. General scenarios are applicable to US and CAN also. Although based on real people, it's general enough to be hilarious to just about anyone. Highest possible recommendation. Expand

    Pretty good......borrows a bit too liberally from 'The Office' though.......definitely a series that people have to pay close Pretty good......borrows a bit too liberally from 'The Office' though.......definitely a series that people have to pay close attention to, and it'll undoubtedly fly over most people's heads. But that's ok, WE get it. ;) Expand

    It is a absurdly hysterical show which deals with the presentation of absolutely twisted sense of humor and a collection of comedy of errorsIt is a absurdly hysterical show which deals with the presentation of absolutely twisted sense of humor and a collection of comedy of errors which is well portrayed so fantastically Capaldi's Malcolm Tucker and the chaos surrounding him that he thrives on. While Malcolm is heart and pulse of the show who lights it all up in an exciting array of cuss words and well placed witticism, the supporting cast around him do a right proper job of expanding on their goofy characters and their fear of Tucker's emphatic insolence. Season 1 is absolutely is right brand of stuff for your time's worth for someone who is looking for this sort of British work and humor. Expand

    The constant extremely shaky camera is making me sick. I get dizzy after only a couple minutes.
    Besides making me physically sick, the show doesn't make me laugh either. Maybe I am not into English comedy.
