Ì rather enjoyed it. I found it to be silly in the best way. Light and fun
Refreshing. I meant to give it 4 stars but it showed 2.5!

A satisfying and delightful rendition of a great novel.
Very entertaining and brilliantly acted.
Satirical, biting humour, with many very comical moments.
Boasts a great cast who have no trouble working with a wonderful script.
Great camera direction.
Made me want to return to read the original work by Evelyn Waugh.

sorry guys, I didnt make it past 30 minutes in. Yawn! and the dumbest premise for a show. I guess Im just a lowbrow but I think I gave it the best of chances.
Im sad to say it, as I a HUGE fan of most British TV and historical fiction and, of course, David Suchet!

Always partial to Evelyn Waugh, and I thought that this was a sincere, in the best of all possible worlds enactment of the author's satire.

I guess I'd call this a farce rather than a comedy. I didn't laugh, but I did see they were trying for humor by making fun of different classes and institutions. It was entertaining, but not wonderful. Some big-name stars help it along.
