    Really glad the show is back for another season - can I suggest PG Wodehouse as a potential candidate for a future episode?

  • Patchy

    A bit patchy, bunch of posh people being sarcastic and stating the obvious. Some of the shows can be funny the others are VERY weak. Can we also stop calling every white person a racist and sexist, you are embarrassing yourself and showing your bias. Nah this show just isn’t funny it’s elitist and snooty. Much better shows out there.
