Being half Brit myself, I have had a long-time interest in British comedies. I first saw the ensemble cast of Paul Eddington, Nigel Hawthorne and Derek Fowlds in the original series of 'Yes, Minister.'
MP Jim Hatcher and his office staff were working in the halls of power trying to right wrongs and just deal with the seemingly endless red tape and bureaucratic butt-kissing that comes with being a civil servant in the employ of the government.
In this series, the newly-elected PM Hatcher still has his trusty office staff to help him in getting through (and sometimes into) some of the sticky situations our world leaders can tend to find themselves in. From deciding on foreign and social policies that aren't too controversial and potentially politically suicidal, to finding time to juggle home life and public duty, the laughs are often tongue-in-cheek and sometimes thought provoking.
Overall, not too much I can say without spoiling things, but a great comedy series and well worth the time to hunt it down if you enjoy a good laugh.
