This program's witty satire and dark sense of humor is done in a new refreshing matter. The writing is immensely clever. This show has a realistic quality that adds to the experience of the show. I highly recommend it!
Not many people in the United States have heard of this show, but since the new season isn't going to be starting until Spring 2012, there is no better time than today to start catching up all the first 7 seasons. Witty, smart and unbelievably funny, Robert Webb and David Mitchell make you laugh, sometimes for reasons you can't even explain.
I agree with @jon that you have to like british humour to really enjoy this. I'm friends with david Mitchell and he is a brilliant comedy writer. I think the show is a bit more like Bosom buddies without the crossdressing. British humour is great because it is often smart and silly at the same time.
Brilliant, dry, British humour. Hugely quotable, something for every occasion. Situations relatable, character inner-thoughts even more so! Mitchell/ Webb comedy duo at their best! London setting plus Cons: Not the easiest series to just jump into - starting from the beginning is highly recommended.
