Yes Prime Minister - 1 & 2
When I go back over the past 50 plus years, I have to say that when it comes to all those wonderful comedy series like Hancock, Dads Army, Fawlty Towers, Fools and Horses and so many more that I could mention, when choosing what I consider to be the funniest, without hesitation, it has to be the Yes Prime Minister 1 & 2. They have the perfect blend, excellent scripts, that were way ahead of their time and an equally excellent cast. The superb Paul Eddington, alongside Nigel Hawthorne and Derek Fowlds, with great support from all the other members of the cast throughout the series.
Comedy shows do not get any funnier, Political Satire at its very best.
Albsolutely fantasic. Dialog at its best. Comedy genius!!!!!!!!!!!
