Storyline

British newscaster Walter Blunt comes to Los Angeles, intent on conquering the world of American cable television. Through the platform of a nightly interview show, Blunt is on a mission to impart his wisdom and guidance on how Americans should live, think, and behave. Unfortunately, Blunt is constantly harassed by interfering network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, and his numerous ex-wives and children. Blunt must now deal with the fallout from his well-intended but misguided actions, both on and off the air, with only an alcoholic manservant at his side.

Simply brilliant!
5 October 2016 | by drkorafSee all my reviews

I don't know why I kept putting off watching this show, I really don't...but after the first minute of watching, I was hooked. This show is simply brilliant! Every one of the characters is well developed and highly entertaining in their own right. This show has the classic English comedic feel to it with extremely supportive dialog that compliments the quirkiness of the cast. Shelly's "breast check" scene is simply hilarious yet not-at-all out of place somehow.

I will never view Patrick Stewart in the same light again as he has completely reinvented his public personna. The character of Walter Blunt is as far from Captain Picard as is possible and shows the wonderful range of Stewart's talent.

Really, this show is entertaining on so many levels it's astounding! I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an exceptional viewing experience.
