OMG, OMG you have to see this, especially if you are familiar with the Empirial literature. Or you have seen one too many seasons of Masterpiece Theatre. The episodes are not equally funny, but all have a touching fidelity to their source material. You will find yourself constantly quoting lines, and bizarre scenes will recur to your memory.

With a total of 9 episodes, I found only about 5 or 6 to be worth watching to the final credits. The acting is generally spirited, but some of the scripts were weak. Similar humor to Monty Python, as the leading names should indicate to you. Peculiar British humor of a zany cast.
