I'd forgotten how funny this show really was. It has a reputation of being so, but I'd forgotten. Within 10 minutes, I was laughing out loud. Despite modern demonisation, I found no disrespect or insulting scripting against Indians. In fact, the whole show lampoons the British, not the host country of India. Many of the actors are Indian, and the one Indian character that has been chastised for being played by a white actor, is actually one of the 2 main characters, heavy in dialogue and demanding a very experienced actor to carry it. At the time, they would've been very rare in Britain's Hindu population, if non existent.
Aside from that, it's a very good reminder of how funny British comedy used to be. This is a delectable box set to have on the shelf for those evenings when you just need some good quality comedy.
