Most sitcoms degenerate in time, by changing actors or characters, sometimes by inserting jokes where they have run out of comic situations. Not so with Brittas Empire. The characters remain consistent with previous series; Gordon Brittas himself may seem more serious and less extreme than in previous situations, where a lot of the comedy is rooted in his obsession with certain rules and procedures. Still the human side of his character never turns the comedy into a soap, but makes comedy in the sense that "comecy is tragedy interrupted". It certainly is - this series at least - a comedy of high standard.
