5.0 out of 5 starsAn Underrated Classic
I remember watching this a very long time ago. Can't remember when but I watched the entire first series. It an episodic comedy series tied together by an interviewer showcasing individuals from different walks of life. Many of the guest stars you may recognize from other BBC shows and movies. A very droll comedy, poignant and sad in many parts. Still, it has a humanity that you will recognize. I can't recommend this show enough.

Amazon needs to offer Season 2.
