This Brit Show is hilarious. John Cleese is a comedic gold mine. Monty Python gone respectable
If you like Monty Python, you'll probably like this.
Absolutely hilarious. A classic sitcom that stands the test of time
Absolutely hilarious! British comedy is some of the best in the world.
John Cleese’s absurd performance makes this worth it.
A classic British comedy with funny characters.
Best sitcom ever? Best of British at any rate.
There can’t be enough good things said about this show. It’s absolutely hilarious.
Funny and rewatchable
One of the best sitcoms of all time. The chemistry is incredible between the four leads with Andrew Sachs stealing every scene he’s in.
Hysterical. If Monty Python did a sitcom.
Brilliant. My family quotes it often. We even named our hamsters Basil & Sybil.
Extremely funny, incredibly well written and ever single episode will have you in the floor laughing
Only a handful of episodes yet it endures as a classic of British comedy after all these years. Not hard to see why. Cleese is magnificent.
Classic and sadly short British comedy. Hard not to laugh at Basil when the other actors are struggling to keep straight faces in the back.
Very British humour.
Super fun comedy show. Original, always hooks you in.
