5.0 out of 5 stars Biting British Satire at its Best, 3 Mar. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Yes, Prime Minister: Series Two (DVD) (DVD)
This is such a shrewd and funny commentary on the way British government (still) works that it's a must see for any fans of satire or just for the excellent writing.
Despite the fact it's nearly 2 decades old (!) it remains sharp and funny, in a large part, due to the brillant acting by Nigel Hawthorne, Paull Eddington and Derek Fowlds. They all click so well they could have been doing it for real.
Hawthorne's Sir Humphrey has to be one of the most deviously machiavellian performances ever broadcast - a true master class in spin! The real joy is how this has to be used every episode to retrieve the idiot politician from a near catastrophic disaster of his own making. This farce frequently leads to the whole of government being brought to it's knees by the egotistical Hacker's insecurities.
Great fun and very repeatable.
